If you are dissatisfied with an item you purchased from us that has not been used, we will accept returns up to 30 days from the date you received the item.

Return shipping is at the buyers expense. Items must be unused and returned in the original retail box/packaging. A restocking fee up to 20% will apply. Original shipping charges are not refundable.  Items that are sent in a sealed bag that are returned with the bag open, will be considered used.

If an item you purchased arrived damaged or is not working properly, the manufacturer will replace the defective items under the terms of their warranty.  If you choose not to have the items replaced and still want to return the item, there will be a 20% restocking fee.  The retail price of used filters will be subtracted from the original purchase price.  Return shipping will be at the buyers expense.

Please note that you must have written approval before returning an item. Return shipments not having prior approval will not be accepted.

It is recommended that you purchase insurance and tracking for any shipment returned for refund or credit.  We will not be responsible for lost or damaged packages.
