Warranty Policy

  1. All Products supplied by AlkaWay are covered by our 12-month Manufacturer’s Warranty against defects. This commences from the purchase date unless otherwise stated below.
  2. A warranty against defects is a representation communicated to a consumer that if the goods or services (or part of them) are defective or not as advertised, AlkaWay will:
    1. repair or replace goods (or part of them) or
    2. provide a refund as per the Returns and Refunds Policy to the consumer.
  3. Any warranty period starts from the date of purchase. To validate your warranty please keep a copy of your Proof of Purchase (invoice). You will need it if a warranty claim is made. If you report a fault within 14 working days of purchase, we will replace the item.
  4. To return a product, you must Contact Us to receive return instructions including a Return Authority Number (RA#). We do not accept returns without an RA#. Visit Returns and Refunds Policy for full return instructions. 
  5. The cost of return freight is the purchaser’s responsibility as it is not a part of our product price.
  6. Our Manufacturer’s Warranty ONLY applies to NON-COMMERCIAL end users. It is limited to covering defects in materials and manufacture. It does not cover any defects judged by AlkaWay or AlkaWay Authorized Resellers to be the result of misuse, neglect, mishandling, incorrect installation or overdue filter replacement. It also does not cover damage caused by insect infestation, or by failure to prevent the build-up of calcium in hard water areas.
  7. Water replacement filters or cartridges are consumables and therefore not covered under our Manufacturer’s Warranty against defects unless broken during delivery or there is a manufacturing defect. (All water filters are dependent upon the quality of your source water, and will fail if excessive contaminants and sediment enter the filter.)
  8. Source water conditions are beyond our control.
    1. In some cases, certain contaminants may block the filter. This may result, in extreme cases, of the filter casing leaking. Warranty is void if the untreated source water is put through the filter.
    2. Ideally working water temperature is in the range of 39 -72°F (4-20°C). Prolong use of hot water can cause channelling through the carbon layers. Warranty is void if hot water is put through the filter.
  9. Water filters should not be used on water that is microbiologically unsafe. If unsure please Contact Us
  10. If you plan to use a water filter with well or bore water that is very hard or high in iron or sulphur levels, please Contact Us
  11. It is necessary that a water filter is replaced at least every 12 months or earlier as specified for the filter. AlkaWay Customers may receive filter replacement reminders by email every 12 months from your purchase date.
  12. To make a warranty claim Contact Us.
  13.  Please refer to our Returns and Refunds Policy for how to make a warranty return.
