All returns must be accompanied by an RMA. Unauthorized returns are subject to an additional $7.50 charge. The Buyer must pay the return shipping costs, unless a product was shipped in error or the product arrived damaged.

Non-defective product returns are subject to the inspection and approval of In Stock Pool Supply, our distributor, and/or the product manufacturer. Returned merchandise must be received within 90 days of the purchase date, must be in new and resalable condition, in the original undamaged packaging with all accompanying material, and accompanied by a signed RMA.

Because it is not possible for In Stock Pool Supply to have full knowledge or complete details of your pool, we cannot, and will not, accept responsibility for merchandise that is not compatible or does not function with your system. We always recommend that the buyer contact the manufacturers directly to determine that the product will be suitable in their environment and to obtain a part number, if in doubt. Most of the time, we can acquire items once we have a part number to research for you. Buyer assumes all responsibility without exception, outside of a manufacturer's stated return policy or warranty. We apologize, but this is due to the huge variety and complexity of pool systems and pool products. We have found that in the majority of cases where a product does not work as desired, it is not due to a product defect, but rather the wrong product, or a problem with the buyer's system.
