Policies & Procedures

Right to Warn

In order to ensure proper function of products, it is strongly recommended that each part is inspected and serviced monthly. Inspection should include, but not be limited to, visible damage, excessive wear, and proper bonding. Failure to properly maintain your product may result in catastrophic failure and/or loss of life.


Hydrasearch warrants the products described herein, and manufactured by Hydrasearch, to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from date of shipment by Hydrasearch, under normal use and service, its sole obligation under this warranty being limited to repairing and replacing as hereinafter provided, at its option, any product found to Hydrasearch’s satisfaction to be defective upon examination by it, provided that such product shall be returned for inspection at Hydrasearch’s factory within three (3) months after discovery of the defect.

The repair or replacement of defective products will be made without charge for parts and labor. This warranty shall not apply to parts or products not manufactured by Hydrasearch, the warranty of such items being limited to the actual warranty extended to Hydrasearch by its supplier.

This warranty shall not apply to any product which has been subject to abuse, negligence, accident or misapplication or to any product which has been altered or repaired by anyone other than Hydrasearch nor to normal maintenance services and the replacement of service items (such as washers, gaskets, and lubricants) made in connection with such services.

Other than the obligation of Hydrasearch expressly set forth herein, Hydrasearch disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and any other obligation or liability. The foregoing constitutes Hydrasearch’s sole obligation with respect to damages, whether direct, incidental or consequential, resulting from their use or performance of the product.
