10 YEARS NAUTIKA® LIMITED BUYER WARRANTY - CLAWFOOT AND FREESTANDING BATHTUBS FOR RESIDENTIAL USE

NAUTIKA® offers the following limited warranty on each of its acrylic bath products. This warranty extends only to the original owner/end-user for personal household use. For commercial uses, additional limitations apply.

Ten years limited warranty :

NAUTIKA® warrants acrylic units to be free from defects in workmanship and materials under normal use and service for a period of ten (10) years from the initial date of purchase by the owner/end-user, contractor or builder from an authorized dealer.

Any product reported to the authorized dealer or to NAUTIKA® as being defective within the warranty period will be repaired or replaced (with a product of equal value) at the option of NAUTIKA®. This warranty extends to the original owner/end-user and is not transferable to a subsequent owner.

Neither the distributor, authorized NAUTIKA® dealer nor or any other person has been authorized to make any affirmation, representation or warranty other than those contained in this warranty; any affirmation, representation or warranty other than those contained in this warranty shall not be enforceable against NAUTIKA® or any other person.

NAUTIKA® reserves the right to modify this warranty at any time, it being understood that such modification will not alter the warranty conditions applicable at the time of the sale of the products in question.

Limitations

This warranty shall not apply following incorrect operating procedures, breakage or damages caused by fault, carelessness, abuse, misuse, misapplication, improper maintenance, alteration or modification of the unit, as well as chemical or natural corrosion, accident, fire, flood, act of God or any other casualty. This warranty shall not apply to stain or malfunction caused by ferrous water, hard water or salty water.

The owner/end-user of the product covered by this warranty is entirely responsible for its proper installation. NAUTIKA® neither installs nor supervises the installation, nor hires a contractor for this purpose, and consequently cannot be held responsible for any default, breakage or damages caused thereby or resulting thereof, either directly or indirectly. The owner/end-user must provide access to the components of the product as described in the installation guide, so that NAUTIKA® can execute the warranty specified herein. If such access is not available, all expenses to provide said access will be the responsibility of the owner/end-user.

This warranty does not apply to products or equipment not installed or operated in accordance with instructions supplied by NAUTIKA® and all applicable rules, regulations and legislation pertaining to such installations.

NAUTIKA® strongly recommends that its products for example, but without limitation, clawfoot and freestanding bathtubs - be installed by professionals with experience in bathroom products. Installation of bathtubs by an inexperienced person may result in breakage and, consequently, cause personal injury or death. NAUTIKA® is not liable for any costs, damages or claims resulting from the purchase of products that do not fit through openings or existing structures. NAUTIKA® is not liable for any costs, damages or claims resulting from defects that could have been discovered, repaired or avoided by inspection and testing prior to installation.

NAUTIKA® is not liable for personal injuries or death to any person or for any direct, special, incidental or consequential damage, loss of time, loss of profits, inconvenience, incidental expenses, labor or material charges, or any other costs resulting from the use of the product or equipment or pertaining to the application of the present warranty, or resulting from the removal or replacement of any product or element or part covered by this warranty.

EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED ABOVE, NAUTIKA® MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY CODE.

In any case, NAUTIKA® cannot be liable for any amount over and above the purchase price paid for the product by the owner/end-user, contractor or builder.

Commercial Limitations

In addition to the above conditions and limitations, the warranty period for products installed for commercial applications or used in commercial ventures is of one (1) year from the initial date of purchase by the owner/end-user, contractor or builder from an authorized dealer. NAUTIKA® is not responsible for loss of use or profit under any circumstances. If the product is used as a display, the warranty period begins when the product is placed on display.

This warranty gives the owner/end-user specific legal rights. The owner/end-user may also have other rights which vary from one province to another.
