Consumer Rights 2015 FAQ:
(1) Under Consumer Rights, you have the legal right to a refund if you return your faulty good within 30 days of receiving it.
(2) If your order is within 6 months old; If you don't reject the goods within the first 30 days, and find a fault within the first six months of possessing your faulty goods, you'll need to give us a chance to make a repair or replacement. If that's unsuccessful, you can then ask for a refund.
(3) If your order is outside of 6 months old; the burden of proof switches to you to prove the fault you've found was present at the time you purchased the goods in store or first took ownership of it if you bought it online.

10 Product Installation
(1) Products should be installed accurately, and correctly by a profesional and/or competent person at all times.
(2) Heat Exchangers (Watercooling Radiators) are prone to damage by the end user underneath the fan mounting holes when longer screws than neccisary are used during installation, if a radiator is returned leaking and under our RMA procedure and this is the fault, your product will be shipped back to you with no refund or replacement issued.
(3) Fittings which are supplied to end users with an O-ring do not require PTFE tape to help seal, if PTFE tape is used on a brass fitting and is inserted into an acrylic threaded product this can cause damage to the acrylic and over time cause cracks. If upon return we see evidence of PTFE tape used on an O-ring supplied fitting your product will be shipped back to you with no refund or replacement issued.
(4) All watercooling products purchased from our store should be fully leak tested for 24 hours prior to any installation attempt. Many manufacturers state it to be correct to leak test CPU waterblocks mounted to the Motherboard or GPU waterblocks mounted to the Graphics card whilst the leaktest is being performed.
(5) "Non Conductive Coolant" is a self contained coolant which is sold in bottled form to be Non Conductive. As soon as this type of coolant makes contact with the metals within a watercooling system this Non Conductivness breaks down and becomes Conductive just like normal Distilled coolant. Please use Non Conductive coolant as a precausion not a reliability.
Always leak test your products for 24 hours away from your electrical components, do not dry mount them and then perform the leak test..
