Product Warranty

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. The periods of warranty and terms of cover (i.e. Product replacement or parts and labor only) are detailed in the preceding pages Warranty applies from date of purchase, not from date of installation.

Warranty Conditions

Inspire Bathware will not accept claims against this Warranty where the following conditions are found to exist:

  • The goods have been installed by a licensed Plumber but not correctly installed.

  • The goods have been installed correctly by a licensed Plumber, however subsequent repairs, modifications and/ or adjustments to the goods after installation have not been carried out by a licensed plumber.

  • Claims against faulty cistern valves, and seals will be rejected where after-market sanitizing additives have been introduced into the toilet cistern tank, rather than to the toilet bowl.

  • Claims for visual defects to product surfaces may be rejected where harsh cleaning or scouring products have been used

  • Claims against vitreous china product faulty dimensions or glazing imperfections (that are permitted within AS1976 – Vitreous China used in Sanitary Applications). It is permitted that vitreous china products will vary up to +/- 5mm on any surface and be acceptable products due to the unique conditions of the product’s manufacturing process.

Water Damage

Some claims may include a claim for rectification of water damage to surrounding areas as a result of leaking from a product.
