Manufacturer's Warranty

10 YEARS QUALITY GUARANTEE AS OF 01.01.2018

Hawle guarantees the customer that the delivered products are free of material or manufacturing defects. In principle, the statutory warranty period of 2 years from delivery to Hawle applies to products sold by us. Due to the high Hawle product quality and added value, however, the warranty period for all drinking water and gas products manufactured by Hawle with the "Hawle" label is ten years and for all waste water products manufactured by Hawle five years.        
The warranty period shall not be extended by the replacement of the product or individual parts, nor shall it commence anew.

Excluded from the Hawle manufacturer's warranty:

  • Damage resulting from normal wear and tear, inadequate maintenance or intentional damage
  • Consumable and wear parts, e.g. filters, seals, etc.
  • Damage caused by improper installation, commissioning and operating errors
  • Dirt infiltrations, limescale deposits, damage due to aggressive environmental influences, chemicals, cleaning agents
  • Damage caused by force majeure or natural catastrophes, in particular floods or fires
  • Defects in the product caused by storage, assembly or transport

  • inappropriate use
  • Installation or application for another medium
  • Installation, maintenance or repair by unqualified personnel
  • Non-compliance with the installation and operating instructions or valid standards and SVGW regulations
  • Installation of non-original spare parts

Processing of warranty cases:

Defects must be reported immediately to Hawle sales representatives within the warranty period.   
Hawle may claim the product in question for warranty clarification. Hawle will check whether there is a warranty claim within the meaning of the Hawle warranty.
In the event of a warranty claim, Hawle shall either repair or replace the defective parts free of charge at its discretion. The Hawle Manufacturer's Warranty covers free delivery of the necessary spare or replacement parts.
Hawle shall bear only those costs which it would have incurred itself if it had repaired or replaced the defective parts. All additional costs, in particular in connection with removal and installation, repair of damage by third parties, reinstallation or other measures, shall be borne by the customer.
