Do not return goods without a return authorization!
To ensure proper credit, call Aquatic Technology, Inc. (800-446-6416) for your Return Authorization (RA) number. A copy of the RA will be emailed or faxed to you. Please follow all directions as listed on the RA to properly return the item. All item(s) returned without an authorized RA number will be refused at the time of delivery and returned to the customer at the customer’s expense. All returns must be shipped back to the proper warehouse as listed on the RA. Please DO NOT ship the items back to the location that they were shipped from. Please ensure that the RA number is clearly written on the package and a copy of the RA is enclosed in the package in order to ensure proper credit. NOTE: Goods must be received at our warehouse within 30 days of the original sale date.
Credits and Refunds
If you are unsatisfied for any reason with a product you receive, we will gladly accept the item back within 30 days of the original sale date.
All items stocked in our warehouse that are received back in sellable condition will be credited back in full less the original shipping and handling fees. Items that are shipped as part of the free shipping promotion will have the actual cost of outbound shipping deducted at the time of refund.
All items that are brought in via special order or drop shipped directly from the manufacturer are subject to a 25% restocking fee (can vary based on manufacturer rates and policies). All refunds for special order items are less original shipping costs.
NOTE: All returned item(s) are subject to inspection. All approved returns must be in new and sellable condition, including all original packaging, accessories, paperwork (i.e. owners manual, warranty card, etc.) or be subject to an additional 10% restocking fee as well as any additional fees incurred to enable us to resell the product. Any product that looks used, dirty, worn, etc. and cannot be resold as new, cannot be returned and no credits will be issued. Ask your customer service representative if you are unsure if a fee will apply to your returned items.
Shipping and Packaging
To protect your returned items and ensure full credit will be applied, please repack all items using all original packing materials when possible. Double box your items to prevent damage in transit. If your return is damaged in shipping due to poor packaging, we will not accept the return for a credit of any type.
- Insure for the full value of the items.
- Write the RA number on the shipping label and outside of box.
- Keep your tracking number – we are not responsible if your item(s) are lost in transit.
