Please read our terms and conditions carefully before making a purchase of a water plant setup or installation from us. Rather know what’s covered now to avoid issues later.
Here’s what we cover in simple terms, Please read and sign each page. We want you to understand that there may be extra costs along the way.
The reason you buy from us is that we are the factory and we offer the lowest price on every component. Our main business is to supply the resellers and franchises in the water industry. We make water treatment simple to understand. You will notice that our price is sometimes 25% of what you would pay when buying from the other companies. Our prices are based on the actual items used on your invoice and therefore extra services or work required are not included in the pricing and will be charged for. This may include driving up and down to the customer for any issues, or doing more pipework, etc.
Scenario 1 :
We charge 3 days installation fee for a simple setup up to 1000LPH RO Machine. While we try to do the job in the available time, It may take extra time and may cost an extra trip / extra days to get your machine running should there be any unforeseen circumstances like load shedding, site not being ready, manufacturing defects on machines / no water, etc. Should this happen, we require payment before the technicians are dispatched again for the extra days/travel cost. Please budget for this.
Scenario 2 :
If you are running a business, we suggest that you should keep some spare parts, or at least be prepared to buy some, especially if you are far away from Puritech. Machines are running all the time and could have a breakdown when not maintained, Especially when the machine is not sized correctly. The solution to this would be to sign a service contract where you pay a monthly fee for a service that you may or may not use, but we like to keep your costs low for you to make the maximum profit. Therefore when you have a breakdown, it is advisable to have some common spare parts if you know how to install and have some experience, Or you can get our Technicians to come out and do the repairs at a cost.
Scenario 3 :
For the 250lph to 1000lph RO plants, solenoids cost around R 500, and pumps cost around R 2000 to 5000. These are usually damaged if the water quality is bad or if subjected to abnormal strenuous running hours. Lighting and Load Shedding could also damage the electrical equipment and should be insured against this.
Whenever you have a problem with our equipment, Please make a video and talk us through it, and explain to us where the problem is so we can help telephonically if possible. Else, the standard return procedure is to be followed.
Warranty on products & return procedure:
Puritech, will, under certain circumstances, accept the return of a product subject to the following return procedure: For an unused, undamaged product from the original owner, in original packaging – Within 14 days after receipt of the Product. Our products carry different warranty periods and customers can ask for this info from the sales agent or a Manager prior to purchasing. While we try to use the best components at reasonable prices on all our machines, we do have occasional failures. Our warranty does cover faulty components, but it does not cover travel. These components need to be sent back to Puritech, booked in, and tested at our factory, and may take up to 4 weeks to repair. Fortunately, the replacement parts are low in price so it may be better for you to buy a new component while waiting for the problem part to be repaired if it can be repaired.
