Additional Details on Pentair Water Solutions Returns

All returned products will be thoroughly inspected and a determination will be made if eligibility and conforming requirements are met. Please verify the product you are returning meets the above and below guidelines and qualifies for return to avoid any delay in, or denial of, processing your return. If a non-conforming product is accepted for return Pentair Water Solutions reserves the right to charge a restocking fee up to 25%, at our sole discretion. Return processing may take up to 5 business days from the time your product is received.

Return Authorization Code (RAC)

Returns will not be accepted without a valid Return Authorization Number (RA). Unless otherwise specified in the item listing on our website or in our Return Policy, you may request a Return Authorization Number (RA) within 90 days of the original purchase date. RA numbers expire after 30 days, but we encourage you to return the product as soon as possible. Any return we receive without a valid RA number will be documented and rejected or subject to a restocking charge at our sole discretion. Customers should call 1-877-842-1635 and speak with customer service to get the RAC. All returns must also contain all parts that were sent, along with all original packaging. Returns must have an RMA or RAC before being returned or the return shipment may be refused by Pentair.

Return Shipping

Pentair Water Solutions may, at our discretion, send you a pre-paid return label for you to return the product. If you use this mailing label and the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), we'll pay the return shipping costs. If you use this mailing label and your return is not the result of our error, the shipping cost of that returned item will be deducted from your refund. The amount deducted will be equivalent to our standard shipping cost for that item.

For your protection, we recommend that you insure your return and use a traceable carrier that can provide you with delivery confirmation. Pentair shall not be responsible for items returned that are lost or damaged in transit. Postage and handling charges, both to and from our warehouse, will be paid by the customer, and are non-refundable. At our discretion, we may reimburse shipping charges related to the return of defective products inside the U.S. only.

For freight shipments, we are happy to accept returns for large items that are shipped via our specialty shippers. These items do require a special type of return and cannot be returned with a pre-paid return mailing label like standard shipments. If you need to return an item shipped via a specialty shipper, please contact customer service and request the return. We will follow up with instructions for returning the item. Note: Any return that is not the result of our error may be subject to a restock fee which will be deducted from the refund.

Important Return Notice

In the event that the product you are returning does NOT meet the requirements described in this document, we will photograph the merchandise and packaging, and prepare a detailed summary of our determination as to why the return was denied. The product(s) will be deemed not eligible for return to the manufacturer and will be returned to you. If Pentair, at our sole discretion, decides to accept a non-qualified item for return, a restocking fee will be assessed.


For authorized returns within the 60-day money-back guarantee window, Pentair will initiate a full refund (purchase price excluding shipping and handling and installation, if applicable) when the product is received:

  1. Your Return Authorization Code will be identified and marked as received.
  2. The package will be inspected to confirm that it contains everything included with the product.
  3. Your refund will be initiated according to the original payment type(s) for the order. Refunds will be sent to the original method of payment within 5 business days of receipt of the returned product.
