The following terms and conditions govern the sale of products by Pool Supplies Canada Inc. By submitting your order to www.poolsuppliescanada.ca you have indicated your acceptance to be bound by these terms and conditions of sale. At the sole discretion of Pool Supplies Canada Inc., these terms and conditions may be changed without prior notice at any time before Pool Supplies Canada Inc. accepts your order.
Payment is due by credit card, PayPal, Interac or Bank Wire Transfer. Once an order is placed by credit card, the credit card account will be verified at the time the order is placed. Should a credit card be declined, so will be the order. No C.O.D. orders are accepted. Orders are processed ONLY upon receipt of payment.
Disclaimer of Warranty
When products are shipped to you, their warranties determined on a per product basis are in effect and are included with the shipment (other than those warranties implied by and incapable of exclusion, restriction or modification under applicable law).
Payment Shipping & Handling Charges & Taxes
The buyer is responsible for any taxes or tariffs associated with your purchase. Please be advised that all freight shipments are curbside delivery only.
If you have a native status card and wish to have your taxes refunded, you must place your order and pay the taxes upfront in advance - this is due to the fact that our website has no way of recognizing native status or tax exemption. Once an order has been placed, you may email email@example.com with an order number to start the tax refund process. To apply for native status tax exemption, a customer must fax or email a copy of the front and back of their native status card as well as their driver's licence. The tax will be refunded once the order has been processed in full - this can take up to 14 business days.
To qualify for provincial tax exemption, the name on the status card must match the billing and shipping name and address, as well as the name on the credit card. A customer cannot place the order under a relatives name who has a native status card; this includes spouses. To qualify for GST tax exemption the order must be delivered to a reserve. Customer must be able to provide proof that the address is on a reserve.
Prices shown on the Pool Supplies Canada Inc. site do not include shipping and handling or insurance, unless otherwise stated. Neither do the prices include applicable taxes, unless otherwise stated. All prices are in Canadian dollars. The price charged for an order will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed. Nonetheless, if the price drops before shipment and you notify Pool Supplies Canada Inc. of the lower price before the product is shipped, in this case (and in this case only) the price charged will be the lower price.
Shipping & Risks during Shipping
When products are shipped to you by common carrier, Pool Supplies Canada Inc. liability to you for breakage and/or non-delivery of the products by the common carrier to you will be restricted by the limits of liability provided by the common carrier's Terms and Conditions of Carriage.
Lost & Damaged Products
All lost or damaged products must be reported to Pool Supplies Canada Inc. by writing or e-mail only. Verbal reports are not accepted, and this report must be made within 14 days of receiving a product.

Order Cancellations & Changes
For the benefit of our customers, we attempt to process orders as rapidly as possible. As such, orders may be shipped from our warehouse for fulfillment very soon after they are placed. Due to the increased difficulty of locating orders once they have begun the fulfillment process, we will not be able to make any order changes or cancellations once they have reached this stage of processing.
Please review orders very carefully prior to submission and, in the event that a cancellation is necessary, please contact us as soon as possible. This will increase the likelihood that we are able to cancel your order before it goes to the warehouse for fulfillment. Unfortunately, no guarantees can be made.
