Terms & Conditions

Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which we will supply products and services to you.

It's important to note that in our quest to offer the best pool equipment many of the brands from whom we source our products operate under trade agreements. This basically means we are an agent for their brand, an arrangement whereby - technically - you are transacting with the brand even though you are dealing through us. This may apply to certain products from brands such as:

Astral Pool, Zodiac, Pentair, Onga, Poolrite, Waterco Water TechniX, Davey

When buying products from these manufacturers, you will be subject to their terms and conditions, which will prevail over these Conditions of Sale if there is any inconsistency. Delivery of these products will usually be by Mr Pool Man.

However, if, for any reason, we cannot supply a product you have ordered, we will let you know using the details provided by you to amend, cancel or delay delivery until stock arrives as agreed with you. If you choose to delay your order, we will contact you to arrange for delivery once the product is available.

Shipping & Delivery

We offer free delivery for all orders Monday to Friday within our standard national delivery areas.

If you need to change a scheduled delivery date or the delivery address, please let us know at least 48 hours before the delivery date. If you are not available to take delivery on the agreed delivery date, and a card is left and the item now collected within required time frame and is Returned to Sender (us) you will be required to pay a re-delivery fee of $9.95 to have the item resent, preferably to an address that can collect the order.

In most instances, delivery will be via standard tracked economy shipping usually by Australia Post – if neither you nor your authorised representative are available at the delivery address to take delivery, an “Article Awaiting” card will be left at the delivery address and your order will be taken to the Australian Post Office suitable to store the product until you are able to go and pick it up. In these circumstances our obligation to deliver the product to you is satisfied when the “Article Awaiting” card is left at the delivery address.

 In case of a disputed delivery or missing item, Mr Pool Man will only replace orders using the same shipping method order was placed with providing the order is proved lost in transit by our delivery company. Mr Pool Man has the right to obtain shipping details (proof of delivery by proof of signature) to provide as proof if dispute is started.

Certain factors such as order size, weight and shipping address may require us to ship via another method. Mr Pool Man reserves the right to change your shipping method in these cases and will provide tracking details for the new carrier once shipped.

The delivery times provided by Mr Pool Man and associated carriers are estimates only. Mr Pool Man will not be held accountable for late deliveries or loss or damage relating to late deliveries.

In the event that multiple items are ordered, part deliveries may be made where stock is not available. All reasonable attempts to notify you will be made using the details you provided. By agreeing to our terms and conditions you acknowledge all information set forth under our shipping pages.

Disputed deliveries need to be made within 60 days of shipping notification, as carriers cannot open investigations with items that have not been delivered past 60 days. As the customer you need to proactively contact us if your order has not been received 30 days after receiving the shipping notification to allow 30 days for an investigation if required.

After 60 days the customer assumes all responsibility for the order and we as the retailer consider the item delivered. After 60 days no reimbursement, refund or replacement will be sent due to a shipping dispute.

The shipping address for your order is shown in the checkout and on your order confirmation and shipping confirmation emails. In the event that an incorrect address was entered, address changes can only be made until the order begins processing. Mr Pool Man cannot accommodate all address change requests.

Mr Pool Man takes no responsibility for orders shipped to an incorrect or invalid address and is not liable for any loss or costs associated with redelivery or replacement due to user error.

Some international orders may incur a customs or import duty charge. Mr Pool Man does not have any control over these charges or are unable to advise what they will be, as it is based on your own countries regulations & compliances. For further information, please contact your local customs office.

All charges are to be paid by the customer on delivery of order. Orders cannot be returned to sender and Mr Pool Man will never pay these customs charges on your behalf. If you refuse to pay these charges your parcel may be abandoned, and Mr Pool Man will not be held responsible for any loss of funds as a result of this occurrence. We cannot mark International orders as a gift in order to bypass or reduce any customs fees. This is an illegal practice and as an established business we will not do this.

Orders that are obviously large, heavy and bulky will be sent on a pallet, and may require a forklift to unload, OR if a forklift is not available, hand unload will be required. This is the customer's responsibility entirely, and if delivery cannot be made to the address due to accessibility or unload reasons, it will be taken back to the depot for pick up from the customer or possible re-delivery. Please note that if there are additional charges for re-delivery etc this will be the responsibility of the customer.

Warranties and Limitation of Liabilities

For any claim for warranty please refer to the attached and below manufacturer’s warranty schedule and terms and conditions via the website links.

Warranty action is determined by the product and its respective warranty cover. Some products are replacement only, workshop only and infield cover and different products have different periods of cover for both parts and labour.

For direct replacement warranty the matter is usually actioned by the manufacturer’s as this is the quickest source of resolution. For all other matters, the issue must be determined and what caused it by an authorised service agent to inspect and assess and they will determine if the issue is product related or not.

The service agent will refer back to the manufacturer if needed to assist with actioning any matter. The manufacturer will cover parts and labour for any product related matter if determined by the service agent inspection and within the warranty period for labour and parts, except for those exceptions as detailed in the terms and conditions.

Customers will be charged by service agents for the following – inspection, non product related matters, out of labour warranty period for that product. From time to time the manufacturer might want to get the product back for closer inspection. Time frame subject to the service agent level of business activity to action and complete once accepting claim is 3-5 business days.

Returned products must be unused and in original condition. Any items found to be in poor condition or missing components will not be accepted and returned back to you.
