Damaged in transit - Please inspect your goods immediately upon delivery
When goods are damaged in transit you must report this to us within 24-48 hours or we cannot claim against the courier for the loss. 
Please do not install your product if it’s damaged, as once it’s installed you have agreed to it being in good condition.
If you are unable to check the goods upon receipt, please note "NOT CHECKED" on the delivery papers before you sign for the goods.
You then have two working days to check for damage/shortages, as stated above.

Note: We may request photographic evidence of damaged goods so we can claim on our courier. 

How to return an item
To initiate a return please scroll to the bottom of this page and press "Start My Return" 
Please make sure that whatever your reason for returning goods, you obtain proof of postage.

Packaging your return
You must make sure goods are packaged appropriately for transit & you may need to provide additional packaging materials to ensure goods are well protected. We cannot be held liable for goods that are returned to us damaged due to inadequate packaging.
You are also advised to get a certificate of posting & postal insurance as we cannot refund any item that is not returned to us.

Paying for returns
If an order has already been dispatched by us then the costs of the return postage will be at your expense unless the goods are faulty. 
We advise that you use a tracked & Insured service & obtain proof of postage.


Refunds can only be made to the original card of purchase. We will process the refund in no more than:

  1. 14 days after the day the product is received by us.
  2. if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which you informed us about your decision to cancel your order.

Please note that you the customer are liable for any diminished value of the product resulting from the handling of the product in any way other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the product while you are responsible for it (this includes, in the context of a return, when the product is in transit back to us).

We will refund the price of the item to the purchaser or exchange the product once it is received by us.
We will refund the standard outbound delivery charge made on orders ONLY if they are returned to us within 14 days of receipt.
If an order is returned to us after 14 days from receipt then we will refund the outbound delivery charge only if the goods are damaged, faulty or incorrect. If you are returning an incorrectly purchased item, that we correctly shipped, we will not refund the order shipping charge.

If the order value is over our minimum order value for free shipping, then we will deduct an amount from the invoice total to cover the shipping/handling costs we incurred to send the items out to you originally. 

Restocking Fee
If we find that a product has NOT been returned to us in new and fully resaleable condition, we reserve the right to refuse a refund on the item or deduct up to 25% of the original selling price from the refund amount.


Warranty Claims

If an item is genuinely faulty customers have the right to a repair or a replacement & in some cases a refund as long as the complaint is made "within a reasonable time". 
We will normally require defective goods to be returned to us so that we can inspect goods and/or if necessary, send them back to the manufacturer under warranty for testing.
Note: If goods are found not to be faulty or they are damaged as a result of incorrect installation or misuse then we reserve the right to charge a handling fee to cover any costs that we incur from testing an item or shipping it back to the manufacturer.

As a guide, most manufacturers offer a 12-month warranty, but it does vary.

If you think a product might be faulty it is in your best interest to check first that items have been installed correctly and that the product is used in the way that it is intended. Warranty claims will be declined if the product has been misused, neglected or incorrectly installed.

If you discover a fault with an item please contact our customer services team so we can discuss the best course of action to resolve the issue. Where an item is shown to be genuinely faulty then Bubbletubs Ltd will usually pay for the reasonable costs of the collection or return postage from the customer.  (UK shipping costs will be covered up to an agreed sum usually £15)

Once a faulty warranty claim item has been returned to us, we will examine the product and, if applicable, set it up for testing.

  • If the product is working correctly, we will return it to you. Note: We reserve the right to charge a handling fee to cover any costs incurred as some manufacturers charge a fee of £50-£75 to test/inspect goods.
  • If the product is faulty, we will repair the goods or send out a replacement product, or if either of these options are not available then we will provide you a credit for the purchase cost of the product.
  • If the product has been damaged due to incorrect installation, misuse or neglect then this will result in the withdrawal of the warranty. Please note in this situation some manufacturers charge an inspection fee of £50-£75 which the customer will be liable for.

Bubbletubs Limited will not be liable for any loss of use of a Spa/Hot tub or any incidental expenses incurred as a result of the repair or replacement of any spa parts. The cost of installation, removal and or shipping is not covered by any warranty.

International Customers
For Faulty/warranty items please note we offer a return-to-base warranty only which means return postage to the UK is paid by the sender. 
Please get in touch with our customer services team on 01746 330950 for more information

Need a replacement?
If you require a replacement product before returning the faulty one, you will need to buy it through the online shop. Replacement products are not sent out until we have received the product (in good condition) and verified the fault exists.
