Three of the major pool and spa equipment manufacturers have decided to implement warranty changes.
Pentair is issuing their first big warranty change in ten years. Previously, Pentair offered repairs or replacements for their products for at least a year. Their new policy limits the warranty on several of their products, including pumps, filters, and heaters, to 60 days unless installed by a certified professional. If that's the case, the product will be protected between 1-5 years depending on the product.
Zodiac implemented the change earlier this year, and reports no negative impact on sales.
Hayward is extending their regular one-year warranty to two or three years on certain products when they are installed by a certified professional.
Besides ensuring the product gets installed correctly, it promotes business f professional installation services.
