Compressed Air Piping Lifetime Warranty
Quick-Lock & Big-Lock Piping and Fittings
The lifetime warranty is available on all new Champion Quick-Lock & Big-Lock piping and fittings, with the exception of fittings with moveable parts such as butterfly valves, shipped after April 1st, 2019. In the event of a claim under this warranty, the purchaser must obtain a return materials authorization (RMA) and instructions for return shipment to the manufacturer. Any lifetime products alleged to be defective must be made available to the manufacturer. Any lifetime warranty replacement products will be replaced FOB point of original delivery.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this lifetime warranty, the products are warranted to be free from any material defects in manufacture and to conform to any industry standards in effect at the time of manufacture and referenced by manufacturer in the applicable product written documentation (Published Standards), in each case for the life of such products from the date of delivery.
The manufacturer’s sole liability and purchaser’s sole remedy for breach of the lifetime warranty is limited to replacement (and not removal or reinstallation) of any such defective product that is returned to the manufacturer by the original purchaser of the product from Champion or any Champion distributor or reseller. In the event that the original product is no longer manufactured with equivalent specifications, a replacement product substitutable may be selected by the manufacturer in its reasonable discretion. If the manufacturer discontinues the product and no substitutable replacement product is available, the manufacturer may credit the purchaser with an amount equal to the original purchase price. In no event shall the manufacturer by liable for any other obligations with respect to any defective products, including, without limitation, any refund of the amount paid for such defective products, notwithstanding the failure of the essential purpose of the lifetime warranty set forth herein.
THIS LIFETIME WARRANY IS THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE BY THE MANUFACTURER AND IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHICH ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED BY THE MANUFACTURER.
