Aquinium is completely dedicated to your total satisfaction. Should you have any suggestions or comments, please use the link on the 'Contact Us' page.

Please note, we advertise lead times for deliveries in good faith.  These can never be guaranteed.

By proceeding with placing an order, you confirm that you are of age 18 or over.

Once you have clicked that you have read these, our terms will apply.

  1. Cooling-off Period

You have a 14-day cooling-off period that commences on the day after you receive your order. During this period, you may cancel your order and receive a full refund if you return the unused goods in their original packaging and in a resellable condition within 14 days of cancelling. We recommend insuring the items you send back to us, and please note that we will not refund any damaged goods. Any carriage charges incurred will be the customer's responsibility.

Some items are not eligible for the cooling off period, such as custom or special order products. Examples include, but are not limited to: 1) custom-sized pool covers, 2) chemicals and paint, 3) pool tiles or finishes due to their batch nature, 4) pool liners or products ordered from third parties, 5) items with a limited shelf life, 6) non-stock or tailor-made products for the customer, and 7) glass items like bulbs (except for glass media). Be aware that cancelling special orders after they have been shipped may result in a restocking fee ranging from 10% to 30%.

Most of our products, when ordered by 12 PM (noon) Monday to Friday, will be dispatched for next-day delivery. However, if an item is out of stock or a special order, it may take up to 28 working days for dispatch, depending on availability. Rest assured, we will contact you beforehand to provide an estimated delivery date.

Please note that if your order includes a 'spares' item requiring a special order, we may hold your entire order until all items are available. Once complete, we'll promptly send it out via next-day delivery service. If you need any part of your order urgently, please reach out to us so we can try to expedite its shipping instead of waiting for the rest of your order. Keep in mind that additional charges may apply.

If you have specific delivery instructions, such as gifting or a required delivery date, please include them in your order. For a secure, no-signature-required delivery, add this request to the 'Delivery Notes' field in the shopping cart's delivery details. Keep in mind that if you choose an unattended delivery, you are responsible for providing a safe location, and we cannot be held accountable for any lost or damaged items after sharing your instructions with our courier.

For sizable orders, like heat pumps, wooden pools, filters, glass media, or pallet services, ensure there is proper delivery access and that someone is available to help and sign for the delivery. We cannot process damage claims if no one is present to sign for the goods. If you need to schedule a delivery but are unable to sign for the items, please reach out to us at +447843131861

In the event that a courier attempts delivery and no one is available to accept the goods, the delivery will be unsuccessful. The items may be sent back to us, and additional fees will apply for re-delivery. If, after a failed delivery attempt, you no longer want the goods, a minimum administrative fee of £30.00 (covering shipping, handling, and administration) will be deducted from any refund you receive.

  1. Warranty

The warranty duration for your equipment varies based on the product purchased. Most of our products include a minimum 12-month warranty. Some items, such as covers, come with a pro-rata warranty, which means the claimable amount for a new cover decreases annually (terms apply). For many products, the supplier holds the warranty. If you have any inquiries about warranty specifics for particular items, feel free to contact us. In case a product malfunctions within its warranty period, please reach out to us promptly. Warranty forms can be downloaded from our website.

Many issues can be resolved through phone support. However, sometimes a product may necessitate an engineer's visit or need to be sent back to us or the supplier. If such a situation arises, please complete and submit the warranty form, and we will guide you through the next steps.

Return of Item - If you suspect your item has become faulty within 6 months of delivery, we are responsible for collecting the item and arranging an inspection to identify the problem. If the item appears to be faulty after 6 months, you are responsible for returning the product to the provided address.

If you encounter an issue with your purchase beyond 30 days, Aquinium must be granted one opportunity to arrange a repair or replacement for any faulty goods covered under warranty. Aquinium reserves the right to decide whether an item will be repaired or replaced.

In the event of a problem, please contact Aquinium first and follow the warranty procedure.

Engineer Visit – As a remote sales company, we generally require you to send back items believed to be faulty for testing. However, in exceptional circumstances and within the first 6 months, we may agree to dispatch an engineer. This could involve a third-party company or specialist engineer, who may get in touch with you to schedule a convenient date and time. We will make every effort to arrange the visit within a reasonable timeframe from the date of contact, but please note that we have no control over third-party engineers' availability or peak periods. We will notify you if there are any delays.

A refundable payment is required for all engineer visits, contingent upon the repair being confirmed as covered under warranty.

After 6 months, it becomes the customer's responsibility to demonstrate that a product fault is due to manufacturing and to arrange the item's return at their own expense.

Warranties for items purchased are non-transferable.

If an engineer's visit is scheduled, prepayment for the visit is required. The cost of the engineer's visit will depend on the type of engineer needed and your location. Costs vary and must be approved by us beforehand. If you choose to authorize an engineer, we will not be liable for any costs incurred. However, if the engineer determines the issue is covered under warranty after inspecting your product, any upfront fees paid for the engineer's visit will be refunded.

Non-Warranty Issues - If an item is found to be faulty due to reasons other than manufacturing or supply errors, you will be responsible for all associated costs. These may include, but are not limited to, collection, inspection, and labor fees.

  • Saltwater Pools - Salt can be corrosive and lead to faults in products not designed for saltwater environments. Utilizing a non-salt-safe product in a saltwater pool will void all warranties.
  • Incorrect Water Balance - Properly balanced water involves maintaining the pH, Calcium Hardness, Total Alkalinity, and sanitizer levels within recommended guidelines. Failure to follow these guidelines can damage most pool and spa equipment, resulting in voided warranties. For more information, visit our resources page or contact our technical department.
  • Damage due to improper installation - Many of our products require a qualified and registered professional for installation. Gas Heaters/Boilers must be installed by a Gas Safe registered installer in compliance with manufacturer guidelines. Oil boilers need installation and connection by a qualified and registered Oil Boiler engineer. Products like Circulating Pumps & Heat Pumps must be installed by a skilled pool engineer/electrician following enclosed guidelines. For any questions about product installation, please contact us.
  • Misuse and Negligence - Our products are designed to perform well and last if used properly. A common instance of misuse is pump priming. Self-priming swimming pool pumps need water to prime, and if the water level is low or the pump introduces air, it can damage the pump and void the warranty. Pumps that run dry are not covered under warranty.
  • Consumable Parts - Some products contain parts that are consumable. For example, pump seals/bearings, capacitors, light bulbs, and lamps are not covered under warranty. For more information about consumable parts, please contact our technical department.

If an item is bought for use abroad (including direct delivery from us in the UK), the repatriation warranty necessitates that you return the goods to the UK yourself in case of any issues or if you wish to cancel an order. Be aware that some product warranties may be invalidated when used overseas. Please contact us before making a purchase for clarification, as we cannot cover any extra charges you may incur.

  1. Guarantee

Prices may change, and if a product is unavailable, we may provide a similar item of equal quality. Colors or visuals are for guidance only, and unless you specify a color or finish, alternatives may be provided. If our products do not meet your expectations, our no-quibble guarantee allows you to return the items (at your expense, provided they are in perfect condition, unused, and in their original packaging) for exchange or refund within 14 days of purchase. If the goods are found to be faulty, we will cover the return cost and designate the courier to be used. Exceptions apply for goods taken overseas; please see Section 2: Warranty for more information.

If we discover a pricing error for items you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option to reconfirm your order at the correct price or cancel it. If we cannot reach you, the order will be considered cancelled. If you cancel after having paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. The contract between you and us will be completed when we dispatch the ordered product(s) to you unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, you have cancelled your order, or it is a Special Order Item (please refer to the Returns & Cancellation Policy for more details).
