Order processing
9. Orders placed on the website are processed with as little delay as reasonably possible. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that further instructions from customers will be acted upon. We advise any customer who is unsure of the product(s) they intend ordering to contact us prior to placing an order so a member of our sales team may assist.

Please Note: Pro-Forma invoices.
We can set up proforma invoices for customers to pay with a BACS payment. (or a card payment over the phone if the card is registered in the UK) however it is the customers responsibility to check ALL the details are correct on the proforma before they make a payment.

Any errors, misprinted information, change of goods or change in delivery/billing address, phone number etc. must be made to us by the customer via email or a phone call BEFORE the payment has been made.

We will then update the proforma invoice, to ensure the details are correct, and will resend the updated proforma to the customer to check again. If everything is correct then payment can be made.

Once we have received a payment, we accept that to mean all the details are correct and we have the authority to go ahead to process your order.

We will send you your VAT invoice (non-VAT invoice if exempt) to acknowledge the payment has been received and that we are now processing your order.

An email dispatch confirmation will be sent once your order has been dispatched with the relevant postage/tracking details.

Should we receive correspondence from the customer AFTER payment has been made, the invoice has been sent, after items have been dispatched or if the order has been delivered to the delivery address stating any discrepancies in the order (whether this is an error with the products ordered, or the details we have been given), whilst we will try our best to resolve such issues it isn’t always possible as once items have been dispatched it is out of our hands and such changes cannot always be made.

On some occasions, we may be able to rectify certain issues however if we receive extra charges to rectify these issues then these will be the customers’ responsibility to pay.

Private Water Supplies
10. We endeavour to give our best possible suggestions for products and treatment but cannot accept responsibility for system performance guarantees as variations in the incoming water quality and other site conditions are beyond our reasonable control. Equipment provided is on a supply only basis, unless otherwise agreed in writing, and we strongly recommend that such equipment be installed by a qualified installer. We accept no liability for poor installation, commissioning and on-going maintenance of the equipment.
