How does Vortex Spas™ warranty work?

The warranty starts when the spa is delivered. It only applies to the original buyer and if the spa was bought from an authorized Vortex™Leisure Pty Ltd reseller.

If there is a defect, the buyer has to notify Vortex™ Leisure Pty Ltd or its representative within 14 days of the defect happening and provide proof of purchase. If the spa needs to be sent back to Vortex™ Leisure Pty Ltd for fixing, the buyer has to pay for the shipping.

Vortex™ Leisure Pty Ltd will decide whether to repair or replace the defective product. To get warranty service, contact the reseller where you bought the spa. If they can't help, you have to notify Vortex™ Leisure Pty Ltd in writing within 14 days of the defect happening.

Vortex™ Leisure Pty Ltd will cover the travel expenses of the service agent for the first 50km from their location, but the spa owner is responsible for any additional travel charges.
