Propools has been helping families create the perfect backyard vacation area since 1997. Over those 20+ years we have learned that our customers want product knowledge. To get that knowledge, they ask us questions and we give them the answers to make a knowledgeable purchasing decision. Below, these are not simply FAQ's but rather decades of Knowledge Questions and Answers.
To make finding the answer to your knowledge question easier we've grouped our Knowledge Questions and Answers into categories as shown below.
With over 30 years of swimming pool industry experience and hundreds of
questions and answers we feel certain you'll find an answer to your
knowledge question. As always, if you can't find the answer to your knowledge question please
call us at 888-352-7582 so we can provide the answer, then add that to our ever growing knowledge base.
Nearly all products sold by ProPools carry a manufacturer warranty. If you feel you have a defective product, please refer to the warranty information packaged with your product.
ProPools does not express or imply any warranties. All warranties are the responsibility of the manufacturer. ProPools expressly disclaims liability for any injury, loss, damage, or cost (including labor) of any kind arising from the use or inability to use any item we sell.
These criteria apply to warranties for most manufacturers and most products:
- Most manufacturer warranties clearly express that warranty applies to defects in material and/or workmanship only, and cover only the replacement of defective or missing parts. Any damage that occurs to a product after it has shipped from the factory is not the manufacturer’s responsibility and is not covered under warranty unless caused by defects in material or workmanship.
- Labor is not included in most warranties, nor do manufacturers accept responsibility for loss of time, inconvenience, incidental expenses or material charges.
- Any shipping charges incurred in the execution of a warranty claim are the responsibility of the owner.
- Warranties typically extend to the original retail owner only and are not transferable.
- Warranty period begins on date of purchase or installation, if it can be proven with an invoice or proof of purchase.
- For products that were shipped internationally, warranties are usually only valid if the manufacturer has a presence in the country where the products were shipped.
We make every effort to ship all orders within 24-48 hours of receipt (except for Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), however this is not always possible due to merchandise availability and other unforeseen events. ProPools does not guarantee transit times on ground packages or standard freight. Free shipping promotions and flat rate shipping fees applies to the continental United States ONLY.
Items shipped within the USA that are too large or too heavy for
UPS must be delivered via freight
truck. All freight deliveries are scheduled for residential curbside delivery
and someone must be there to inspect and receive the delivery. Freight shipments require inspection and signature upon delivery. Any damaged shipments must be refused.
Products Damaged in Transit
While it's unfortunate, products are damaged by the delivery carrier
from time to time. You must inspect the item(s) by opening the pallet and boxes to check for concealed freight damage.
It is highly recommended that you remove
the wrapping and/or box and inspect the product for hidden damage as
well. Please clearly notate on the carrier’s paperwork
that the item was damaged when it arrived, refuse the shipment and
supply us with a copy of that paperwork. If the carrier will not let you
remove the box, then please
clearly write on the freight bill "Subject to Inspection for Damage".
Please contact us so we can get you a replacement or find a solution
for the damage to be repaired.
