SKC Limited Warranty for Products and Return Policy

1. Limited Warranty
  1.1

SKC warrants products manufactured by SKC and sold by SKC or authorized representatives or distributors to be free of any defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for the warranty period, beginning on the date of original invoice, as follows:

(a) SKC sample pumps and chargers: 1 year
(b) SKC replacement parts (including replacement battery packs): 90 days
(c) Resale products distributed by SKC: Original manufacturer warranty

The foregoing products and all other SKC products are subject to the SKC Return Policy in Section 4.

  1.2 This Limited Warranty extends only to the original buyer/end-user of the product and is not transferable in any manner.
  1.3 SKC shall have no obligation under this Limited Warranty until all invoices for the product are paid in full.
  1.4

Under this Limited Warranty, SKC reserves the right to inspect product to determine validity of buyer’s claim and SKC, in its sole discretion, shall have the option of:

(a) replacing warranted SKC-manufactured product (F.O.B. point of purchase) without charge provided the product is returned to the point of purchase within 30 days of the date of invoice (replacement product may be model equivalent or better). This option is not available for resale products, or
(b) crediting the buyer's account with the price of the warranted SKC-manufactured product provided the product is returned to the point of purchase within 30 days of the date of invoice. This option is not available for resale products, or
(c) repairing warranted product without charge for product returned to point of purchase after 30 days of invoice date and before the end of the stated warranty period in Section 1.1. This option is available for resale products.

Repair shall not extend the warranty period listed for the product in Section 1.1. However, parts installed during SKC warranty repair are warranted for 90 days from date of repair invoice.

SKC shall honor the original manufacturer warranty for resale products. However, if the product is not under warranty, the buyer is responsible for all repair costs charged by the product manufacturer.
  1.5 The foregoing remedy shall be SKC’s sole liability and shall be the exclusive remedy of the buyer.
  1.6 This Limited Warranty shall not apply to product that has failed due to or been damaged by (a) accident, misuse, abuse, improper application, negligence, alteration, force majeure occurrence(s), transportation or handling, failure to operate products in accordance with manufacturer instructions, or failure to maintain the recommended operating, charging, or storing environments in accordance with manufacturer instructions; (b) unauthorized repair, maintenance, service, or modification of product by the buyer or a third party or attachment to or use of non-SKC supplied equipment; (c) use of non-SKC supplied cleaning devices or supplies or consumables.
  1.7 Claims under this Limited Warranty must be made to your SKC representative in writing within 30 days of buyer discovery of product defect(s) (mailed certified return receipt-return receipt requested, postage prepaid). Product must be returned to the point of purchase (freight prepaid) with required documentation and in appropriate packaging clearly marked with a Returns Authorization (RA) number obtained from SKC (see Return Policy in Section 4). SKC reserves the right of inspection to determine validity of buyer’s claim of defective product under the terms of this Limited Warranty. SKC further reserves the right to approve and negotiate the terms of repair or replacement.
  1.8 SKC reserves the right to make changes to, at any time without notice, product design, color, material, and specifications without any obligation to incorporate new features or modifications in previously sold products. SKC reserves the right to discontinue product.
  1.9 This Limited Warranty shall be invalid if the buyer fails to comply with every term and condition of the Limited Warranty.
2. Limitation of Liability
