FIRST YEAR – The Manufacturer warrants every cooler, bottle filling station, packaged water chiller, fountain and accessory to be free from defects in materials
and workmanship under normal use for one (1) year from date of install or eighteen (18) months from date of shipment from factory, whichever occurs first. The
Manufacturer warrants every STE Series outdoor tubular fountain and bottle filling station to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use
for five (5) years from the date of install or sixty-six (66) months from date of shipment from factory, whichever occurs first. This extended warranty does not apply
to freeze resistant assemblies.
SECOND THROUGH FIFTH YEARS – The Manufacturer warrants the compressor and hermetically sealed refrigeration system, including cooling coils or tank
assembly when part of the hermetically sealed refrigeration system, to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for an additional four (4)
years from the end of the one (1) year period described above. Packaged water chillers are not subject to the additional four (4) year warranty when used in chilled
water commercial/industrial applications other than for potable water.
INSTALLATION AND OPERATION – The foregoing Limited Warranty applies only when the product is installed and operated in accordance with the Manufacturer’s
written instructions included with each unit. These products are designed to operate on 20 psi to 105 psi supply line pressure. Non-filtered Bi-level units require a
minimum of 40 psi supply line pressure to ensure adequate stream height from each bubbler when activated simultaneously. Bi-level filtered models, regardless of
supply line pressure, cannot provide adequate stream height from each bubbler when activated simultaneously. The Limited Warranty does not apply to products,
which on examination by the Manufacturer or its agent, are found to have been subjected to accident, alteration, abuse, misuse, misapplications, corrosive type
atmospheres, or abnormal use.
OWNER’S OBLIGATIONS – It is the owner’s obligation to pay for any repairs or maintenance not covered by the Limited Warranty, including service calls related
to non-warranty issues. Any appearance imperfections are to be noted at time of installation, and the installer or the supplier notified without delay. In the case of
products located within the United States or Canada, it is the owner’s responsibility to allow access to the unit for the authorized service center to repair on site and/
or remove unit from wall to repair at the authorized service center’s discretion. In the case of products located outside the United States or Canada, the owner is to
return any part for which replacement is sought to the closest authorized service center or to the manufacturer’s factory repair department.
MANUFACTURER’S OBLIGATIONS – When the product is located within the United States or Canada, the Manufacturer’s obligation under this Limited Warranty
is limited to the labor and parts to repair or replace any part which is expressly covered by this Limited Warranty at one of its authorized service centers or at its factory
repair department. The warranty applicable to any replacement unit shall be the remaining warranty period on the replaced unit. The Manufacturer’s obligation
also includes cost of outbound freight (but not express freight) of the part or parts from an authorized service center or the factory repair department, but only if the
Manufacturer determines that the part or parts, and the purported defect or defects, are covered by this Limited Warranty.
When the product is located outside the United States or Canada, the Manufacturer’s obligation under this Limited Warranty is limited to providing a replacement part
for any part expressly covered by this Limited Warranty which, upon examination by the Manufacturer or its agent, is found to be defective, but does not include any
obligation to provide labor or to pay labor costs incurred in connection with the replacement. The Manufacturer’s obligations also include cost of outbound freight (but
not express freight) of the part or parts from the factory repair department to (but not beyond) the port in the United States from which the part or parts are shipped
to the ultimate destination, but only if the Manufacturer determines that the part or parts, and the purported defect or defects, are covered by this Limited Warranty.
WHAT WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER – This Limited Warranty does not include payment for any field labor to provide for normal maintenance
including adjustments such as water stream height, water temperature or electric eye sensitivity. The water system and regulating valve are not covered by
this Limited Warranty if they become inoperative due to liming, sand or similar residue. This Limited Warranty is voided if repairs are made by an unauthorized party
or the serial number data plate is removed or defaced. Normal deterioration of finish due to use and exposure is not covered by this Limited Warranty. Corrosion of
materials is also not covered by this Limited Warranty. The Manufacturer is not liable for repairs, whether cosmetic or structural, to walls where cooler, bottle filler,
fountain and packaged water coolers are built into the wall. If inlet pressure is above 105 psi, a pressure regulator must be installed in the supply line. Any damage
caused by reason of connecting this water cooler, bottle filler, fountain or packaged water cooler to supply line pressures lower than 20 psi or higher than 105 psi is
not covered by this warranty.
PERSONS ENTITLED TO BENEFIT OF WARRANTY – This Limited Warranty is applicable only to (i) purchasers who purchase the product for the resale in the
ordinary course of business, and (ii) the first person who purchases the product other than resale.
