Warranty terms and conditions

Methven will, free of charge, during the relevant warranty period set out above ("Warranty Period") repair, or at its option replace, Products which do not comply with the specification set out on Methven’s website and in Methven’s official brochures due to defects in materials, workmanship and/or design.

Methven will not be required to repair or replace Products under this warranty where:

  • you are unable to prove that the Product was purchased from Methven or a Methven-approved supplier by supplying Methven with an original valid invoice and/or receipt;
  • the Product has not been installed by EWL, maintained and, where relevant, repaired by Methven or a professional plumber with at least NVQ Level 2 plumbing qualifications (or equivalent);
  • any instructions as to storage maintenance or your obligations in relation to installation or use of the Products made available to you have not been complied with (including instructions regarding the use of filters and/or temperature and pressure levels of water connected to the Products);
  • the water system that the Products are fitted to contains debris;
  • the Product has been damaged by misuse, accident or neglect;
  • the Product has been tampered with, modified or repaired in any way other than in accordance with this warranty;
  • the Product has discolouration, corrosion or rusting from ‘hard’ water and/or other environmental factors; and
  • the Product has not been serviced at regular intervals in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

The Product should only be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The filter must be replaced when the indicator depletes to ensure performance and water taste. Failure to change your filter may invalidate your warranty.

This warranty will apply to any Products and/or replacement parts which are repaired or replaced for the remainder of the original Warranty Period.

Where we are unable to provide a replacement Product, we may offer you an alternative replacement product or refund.

Exclusions of Liability

This warranty does not cover:

  • damage to Products caused by any reason other than defective materials, workmanship and/or design, including any damage caused by any person who is not employed by Methven; or
  • seals, washers, nuts, bolts, screws and any other consumable or wearable items.

Methven shall not  be liable, whether directly or indirectly, to the purchaser or end user of any product purchased from Methven for any loss, damage (including consequential damage), cost or expense suffered or incurred by that person (including, without limitation, any damage and/or labour charges incurred in relation to the installation, reinstallation, repair or replacement of any product), other than (i) as provided in the above provisions; (ii) as provided  under any relevant consumer protection legislation; or (iii) as consented to by Methven in writing in advance.

Methven will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs of attending your premises and/or, where relevant, returning Products to you (as notified to you at the relevant time) in circumstances in which: 

  • we attend your premises and are unable to access the Product (e.g. where we are unable to gain access to premises or are unable to access the Product without causing damage to your property);
  • upon testing the Product, it is found not to be defective under the terms of our contract with you; or
  • you have not followed the terms of this warranty and/or any instructions provided by or on behalf of Methven in respect of the Product.

In some circumstances, it may not be possible to repair or replace Products without undertaking works which may damage your premises and/or property (including, without limitation, fixtures and fittings). We will not undertake any works at your premises without your prior authorisation. 

Repairs Warranty

During a period of two years following the performance of repairs by Methven under this warranty, Methven will, at its option, re-perform any repairs and/or replace any affected Products in the event that Methven’s failure to perform such repairs with reasonable skill and care directly causes any Product(s) to fail to comply with our contract with you.
