Notes on the guarantee
  1. Our EU guarantee is limited to covering defects in materials and manufacture. It does not cover any defects judged by AlkaWay or AlkaWay Authorized Re-sellers to be the result of misuse, neglect, mishandling, incorrect installation or overdue filter replacement. It also does not cover damage caused by insect infestation, or by failure to prevent the build-up of calcium in hard water areas.
  2. If the UltraStream is to be installed undersink it must be done with a vented faucet.  The guarantee and all claims are void if a vented faucet is not used according to instructions. 
  3. Water replacement filters or cartridges are covered by the guarantee if broken during delivery or there is a manufacturer defect. However, they are consumables that must be replaced within the filter life period. We may ask to see a copy of the replacement cartridge invoices when making a claim.
  4. It is necessary that a water filter is replaced at least every 12 months or earlier as specified for the filter. (All water filters are dependent upon the quality of your source water, and will fail if excessive contaminants and sediment enter the filter).
  5. Source water conditions are beyond our control. In some cases, certain contaminants may block the filter. This may result, in extreme cases of the filter casing leaking. Warranty is void if untreated source water is put through the filter.
  6. Water filters should not be used on water that is microbiologically unsafe. If unsure please Contact Us.
  7. If you plan to use a water filter with well or bore water that is very hard or high in iron or sulfur levels, please Contact Us.
