FLUSHMATE® Warranty Policy

Flushmate® Limited Warranty

Effective January 5, 2015

What Is Covered Under The Limited Warranty
Subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of this limited warranty, the Flushmate division of Sloan Valve Company ("Flushmate") warrants to the end-user owner, as further defined herein, that the Flushmate Pressure-Assist System ("Flushmate System") will be free from defects in material and/or workmanship for a period of 10 years from the original date of purchase of the Flushmate System or of the toilet fixture containing the Flushmate System ("Purchase Date"). In the absence of proof of the Purchase Date, Flushmate warrants that the Flushmate System will be free from defects in material and/or workmanship for a period of 10 years from the manufacture date of the Flushmate System ("Manufacture Date"). The Manufacture Date is located in the Flushmate System's date-coded serial number, which is printed on the label on top of the Flushmate System. The first six numerals of the Flushmate System's serial number show the Manufacture Date by month (first two numerals), day (second two numerals) and year (last two numerals). For further information regarding the location of the Manufacture Date, you may reference the user manual ("User Manual") that was supplied with your Flushmate System, which is also available at www.flushmate.com. If, during the limited warranty period, the Flushmate System is found to be defective in material and/or workmanship, Flushmate will, at its sole option: (1) replace the defective Flushmate System component(s); or (2) if necessary, replace the entire Flushmate System.

Flushmate's limited warranty on the Flushmate System will be referred to herein as the "Limited Warranty."

Who Is Covered Under The Limited Warranty
This Limited Warranty is provided solely to the end-user owner of the Flushmate System ("You" or "Your").

Limitation Of Implied Warranties
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ON THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO THE SAME DURATION AS THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD STATED HEREIN.

Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to You.

Limitation Of Damages TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL FLUSHMATE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS OR PROFITS, INJURY OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY OR PERSONS, YOUR INABILITY OR ANY OTHER PERSON'S INABILITY TO USE THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM OR ANY LABOR OR OTHER COSTS OR EXPENSES INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH REPLACING THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, ITS COMPONENT(S) OR THE TOILET FIXTURE CONTAINING THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE). TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL FLUSHMATE BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM IMPROPER OR INCORRECT INSTALLATION, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE, USE, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, ITS COMPONENT(S) OR THE TOILET FIXTURE CONTAINING THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, OR FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ALTERATION, MODIFICATION, MISUSE OR ABUSE OF, OR NEGLECT OR CARELESS HANDLING WITH RESPECT TO, THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM, ITS COMPONENT(S) OR THE TOILET FIXTURE CONTAINING THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF FLUSHMATE EXCEED THE COST OF A REPLACEMENT FLUSHMATE SYSTEM.

Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to You.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SETS FORTH THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BY FLUSHMATE REGARDING ITS LIABILITIES AND OBLIGATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM. THERE ARE NO PROMISES, REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, COVENANTS, AGREEMENTS, UNDERTAKINGS OR GUARANTEES WITH RESPECT TO THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM OTHER THAN THOSE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN ADVICE, RECOMMENDATION, AFFIRMATION OF FACT, DESCRIPTION OF GOODS OR SPECIFICATION RELATING TO THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM SHALL CONSTITUTE, OR BE DEEMED TO CONSTITUTE, A WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO THE FLUSHMATE SYSTEM.

Conditions, Limitations And Exclusions
1. This Limited Warranty does not cover any Flushmate System if the Flushmate System is not installed, operated, maintained and used in accordance with the User Manual.

By further way of example and not by limitation, removal or damage to the serial number label constitutes alteration, modification, misuse, abuse, neglect and/or careless handling of the Flushmate System and will void this Limited Warranty.

4. This Limited Warranty does not cover any Flushmate System if the Flushmate System and/or its component(s) is/are repaired or replaced improperly or incorrectly. While Flushmate does not require that You use its parts or accessories in order to obtain Limited Warranty coverage, Flushmate recommends that You use parts or accessories that are recommended by Flushmate. It is an express condition of this Limited Warranty that the Flushmate System and its component(s) be repaired or replaced properly and correctly.

6. This Limited Warranty applies only to the Flushmate System. Nothing contained herein constitutes a warranty by Flushmate on any fixture, plumbing device or configuration, part, accessory or any other device, item or product other than the Flushmate System. Flushmate accepts no responsibility for the failure, or any damage resulting from the failure, of any fixture, plumbing device or configuration, part, accessory or any other device, item or product that Flushmate does not sell.

What The Purchaser Must Do To Get Limited Warranty Service
To make a claim under this Limited Warranty, You must contact Flushmate within 30 days of discovery of the defect in material and/or workmanship giving rise to the claim by one of the following methods: (1) call Flushmate's Customer Service Department at 800-533-3460 (tollfree) or at 248-491-7070; (2) write Flushmate at Flushmate, Attn: Warranty Submission, 30075 Research Drive, New Hudson, Michigan, 48165-8548; or (3) email Flushmate at warrantyinfo@flushmate.com .

If You do not have valid proof of the Purchase Date, the Limited Warranty period will be 10 years from the Manufacture Date, as stated herein. Flushmate shall then have a reasonable opportunity to investigate the claim prior to determining whether relief is available under this Limited Warranty. Such investigation shall include evaluation of the claimed defect(s) in material and/or workmanship, either via telephone, via electronic mail, or by physical evaluation of the Flushmate System at Flushmate or at the location of Your Flushmate System. If a physical evaluation of the Flushmate System is necessary, Flushmate will cover the costs of the physical evaluation (though Flushmate will pay only for normal (non-expedited) shipping costs) and Flushmate will provide You with all other necessary details.

During its investigation, Flushmate may request additional information from You in order to determine whether the conditions set forth in this Limited Warranty have been satisfied and whether any limitations or exclusions apply. You must respond promptly to Flushmate's requests for such additional information. Flushmate will not be required to provide relief pursuant to this Limited Warranty without being given a reasonable opportunity to investigate the claim.

What Flushmate Will Do Under The Limited Warranty
If, after investigating a claim made under this Limited Warranty, Flushmate determines that the Flushmate System contains a defect in material and/or workmanship and that the claim under this Limited Warranty is valid, Flushmate will, at its sole option under this Limited Warranty: (1) replace the defective Flushmate System component(s); or (2) if necessary, replace the entire Flushmate System. This is the sole remedy available under this Limited Warranty. The Limited Warranty applicable to any replacement Flushmate System will extend only for the time remaining under this Limited Warranty. If shipment of any goods under this Limited Warranty is necessary, Flushmate will be responsible for normal (non-expedited) shipping costs. To the extent that You seek expedited shipment of goods under this Limited Warranty, the expedited shipping costs will be Your responsibility and Flushmate will not cover those costs.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF FLUSHMATE EXCEED THE COST OF A REPLACEMENT FLUSHMATE SYSTEM.

What Flushmate Will Not Do Under The Limited Warranty
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Flushmate will not pay for any labor, expedited shipping costs or any other incidental charges (other than normal (non-expedited) shipping costs) incurred in connection with the replacement of the Flushmate System or its component(s) under this Limited Warranty. Those costs, along with any additional costs and expenses beyond the cost of a replacement Flushmate System, shall be Your sole responsibility and are excluded from coverage under this Limited Warranty.
