In no event shall Aqua Technology Group or its respective suppliers aggregate liability for direct damages under this agreement exceed the fees paid for the product or services relating to the claim. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
Please note that changing, upgrading or downgrading your account may result in the loss of content, features, or capacity of your account. Aqua Technology Group does not accept any liability for any such losses.

You should always minimize the risk of potential safety problems by following all applicable local and national codes that regulate the installation and operation of your equipment. These codes vary from area to area and usually change with time. It is your responsibility to determine which codes should be followed, and to verify that the equipment, installation and operation is in compliance with the latest revision of these codes. At a minimum, you should follow all applicable sections of the National Fire Code, National Electrical Code, and the codes of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). There may be local regulatory or government offices that can also help you determine which codes and standards are necessary for safe installation and operation. Equipment damage or serious injury to personnel can result from the failure to follow all applicable codes and standards. We do not assume any responsibility for your product design, installation or operation.
Our products are not fault-tolerant and are not designed, manufactured or intended for use or resale as online control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, or weapons systems, in which the failure of the product could lead directly to death, personal injury or severe physical or environmental damage. This website and many of our publications contains many specifications, wiring diagrams and other types of information related to the various product offerings. However, under no circumstances should you use this document for installation, operation or troubleshooting of any equipment. Always consult the appropriate product documentation prior to using the equipment. If you have any questions concerning the installation or operation of any equipment, or if you need additional information, please contact the manufacturer or us for assistance.
You may not use the Services to solicit, interfere with, or endeavor to entice away from Aqua Technology Group any Aqua Technology Group customer, user, or subscriber. You agree to pay Aqua Technology Group a fee of $10,000 per user enticed away with no limit to the maximum liability you owe to Aqua Technology Group under this paragraph.
The Services are for your own use only. You may not resell, lease or provide them in any other way to anyone else, except as expressly permitted through the Services or by written permission of Aqua Technology Group or by acting as an agent contracted by a third party to act on its behalf.
If you are interested in becoming an Aqua Technology Group partner, reseller, or affiliate, we would be happy to talk with you. Affiliates, please look at the Aqua Technology Group Partners and Affiliates program. If you have something else in mind, please email email@example.com.
We maintain a security interest in our products, services, fees and shipping costs. That is, we reserve the right to repossess any equipment for which we have not been paid, modify any service for which we have not been paid in full, modify and product or services for which fees have not been paid, and stop or change delivery for any shipping for which we have not been paid. This includes products that have already been shipped to an end customer, either individually, or as part of a machine or process.
Aqua Technology Group is located in the state of Ohio and is obligated to charge sales tax respectively for delivery within our taxable jurisdictions and customer pick-up orders which are deemed taxable. Sales tax rate varies by county. Ohio tax-exempt customers and customers in our other jurisdictions must submit their tax exemption certificate to avoid tax. We currently do not add or collect sales tax for states other than Ohio but is subject to change as required by facility or jurisdiciton. It is the customer’s responsibility to pay appropriate tax to your state when necessary.
While we constantly strive to have products in inventory or available for shipment, you may order an item that is temporarily out of stock or requires time for production, configuration, programming, and so forth. For online customers, we will notify via your submitted contact information as soon as possible if the availability of the product or services has changed. If an item is not in stock, it will be placed on backorder and shipped when the item is available via the same method as the original order. Any items that ship directly from the manufacturer will ship complete upon availability of all related items on the order.
We make every attempt to calculate and present an expected shipment date for backordered items. If necessary, please contact us for additional details. Please note that the dates are not guaranteed dates and Aqua Technology Group cannot be held liable if the date is not met. The information is provided for your planning purposes only. This data could change at any time due to details with the manufacturer or specifics of your order. You may cancel a back order at any time prior to shipping (with the exception of some special orders) by contacting us.
We do not require confirming Purchase Orders for orders, but if your company policy requires it, please make sure it is clearly labeled as a confirming purchase order. Please remember, only our terms and conditions will apply and will override any terms or conditions that your order may attempt to hold as superior. We also reserve the right to not accept Purchase Orders in whole or terms and conditions of Purchase Orders that are not in agreement with our Terms and Conditions.
Processing of Orders
If you place an order online, and there are no credit, shipping or other issues, the order will be processed as soon as it is received into the order system. For faxed or mailed orders, our policy is to enter all orders the same business day they are received. Orders faxed and e-mailed after business hours, on weekends and on national and company holidays will be entered the next business day. Please note that new customer orders and international orders may require additional verification that could result in a delay in processing.
If your credit card is declined for the order amount, your established account goes over your limit, or a payment is past due, the processing of your order may be delayed. Please contact us or email firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve any payment issues.
Because we ship FOB origination within the U.S (order-dependent in Canada), the risk of loss transfers to you when we deliver the goods to the carrier. Insurance is available at your expense to insure against loss or unusual damage (currently limited for online orders). It is not automatically included in the shipping charges. Your Sales Representative can calculate the cost of insurance and provide this estimate at the time you place your order. If you choose to purchase insurance, the charges will be added to your order or invoice. Additional insurance is not available for LTL shipments since maximum liability under those companies easily covers the value of our products. Insurance option is not generally available online; this request must be called in.
Aqua Technology Group ships/exports its products in accordance with U.S. law. Diversion by our customers or any third part contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.

We offer a generous 30 Day Return Policy for most items and will attempt to accept returns on most items, for any reason, subject to the following:
- A Return Material Authorization is required for all returns and items must be received by us within 30 days of the date of purchase. Please use Return Material Authorization form, the return section of my account page, or call one of our Return Material Authorization (RMA) representatives at (800) 513-8993 for an RMA before returning any product to us. The RMA representative may request return approval for your product by our Technical Services department or manufacturer before an RMA can be issued.
- Reason for Return: In our Return Material Authorization (RMA), we will ask for a brief explanation why the item is being returned to us. This provides continuous product feedback and helps us understand product issues and your needs.
- Condition: The item being returned must be in new condition with factory seals intact (i.e. no scratches, seals broken or other signs of use). All original packing materials (boxes, bags, etc.) must be returned with the item and undamaged.
- Restocking Fees: Most items returned in new condition will not have a restocking fee. However, some items may subject to a restocking fee. A restocking fee (typically 15%-50%) may be applied as a percentage of the amount originally charged for the item. Again, we are understanding people here and are willing to work with you if something didn’t go as planned for you so just contact us if you need an exception or have a special situation. You may also contact us prior to purchasing the item to see if a restocking fee would ever apply to that product.
- Items that are generally not returnable include: any customized item, items with custom or “made to order” configurations, items with custom cables, custom lengths or dimensions, items with custom programming, custom firmware, custom software, custom configurations, custom layouts, custom engraving, custom printing, custom labels, nameplates, any made to order items, any non standard item, sampling equipment, analyzers, any item that comes in contact with any process, or any product as deemed by us, the vendor or the manufacturer as non returnable.
- Proof of Purchase: We have to have a record of you purchasing the item from us. We will normally have this on file but you may be required to show proof of purchase on some orders.
- Please note that we cannot accept products that you purchased from one of our Value Added Resellers (VARs), direct from the manufacturer or any other third party. Please contact the VAR or manufacturer from whom you purchased when seeking potential replacement, repair or credit.
- A Return Material Authorization does not guarantee a refund or replacement. If a refund is initially issued and the manufacturer of the product finds the problem to be due to “customer use”, “installation issue”, “abuse” or any other factor, the credit will be reversed and you will be notified of such action. Aqua Technology Group will accept no responsibility nor issue credit for packages damaged in transit for any reason. It is your responsibility to assure that the product is properly packaged for shipment and insured. Freight charges are your responsibility and we highly recommend that you insure the item, at your expense, for the amount of the potential credit that you are seeking.
- Typical Return Processing Time: Once the item is received and inspected by our fulfillment center (usually within 72 hours of receipt) we will process the return and then notify you of the approval of the item(s) for credit or refund. Any applicable refund will then be processed and a credit will be automatically applied to your credit card or original method of payment within 2 to 10 business days. We will refund you up to the purchased amount less shipping, handling and any restocking fees. Please note that depending on your credit card company or financial institution, it may take an additional 2 to 10 business days after your credit is applied for it to post to your account. If you paid on a NET account, your account will be credited within the next billing cycle. If you paid via check, a refund check will be mailed within 2-10 business days.
- International Returns: Items shipped outside the of the United States or Canada, or items shipped “internationally” cannot be returned under normal circumstances. If there is a product defect, we will make all reasonable efforts to work with you and / or the manufacturer to provide you a full replacement if the manufacturer’s warranty terms and conditions apply. Customer is responsible for all shipping, handling, duties, fees and taxes associated with the cost of replacement of an internationally shipped item(s). No shipping charges, handling fees, duties or taxes will be refunded.
Aqua Technology Group is not obligated to provide refunds or credits for any Service, partial months or years of the Services, upgrades or downgrades, or unused time during your subscription.
