Outback Water will not be liable for damaged packages if notification is not made within 72 hours of delivery. If damage occurs during transit and the damage appears to be the result of poor handling by the carrier it will be the customer’s responsibility to initiate a damage claim with the carrier.

Refunds will not be issued on any product that was damaged during installation - whether due to incorrect installation or mistreatment.

We do not refund shipping on returned items.

If any return shipment is damaged we will be unable to offer a refund as the cost of the damage becomes the responsibility of the customer and/or the carrier. It is important to package all returns carefully to avoid any damages in transit.
