Shipping

Please check the shipping address listed in your paypal transaction as you check out! If that address is wrong contact me ASAP since I pack and ship orders quickly and I do it based on the address paypal gives me. I prefer you have a confirmed paypal address since unconfirmed addresses mean I need to confirm the shipping address with you (this takes time and can delay shipping.) If you get an e-mail from me with a subject like Re: Payment received from your e-mail@your e-mail.com it is me trying to confirm something about your order before I can ship, please open it and respond if you want your order shipped asap.

I do not earn money on the shipping. The paypal calculator is not very flexible so if it over charges you for shipping, I will refund the difference. There is a place on paypal where you can add instructions about shipping (for instance if the shipping address is a business address according to UPS/Fed Ex it might allow me to save you money on shipping for certain products if I know about it, otherwise I have to assume residential shipping. If you add your phone number there I can use your phone number if I ship via Fed Ex for certain products and they can call you if there is an issue with delivery.)

If Paypal doesn't charge you for shipping, it is probably because you are in another country or someplace I don't normally ship to, I will be contacting you about it since I will need to find out the shipping costs to your location and send you an invoice for the shipping or refund your order if I can not ship to you or if you don't want to pay the shipping. I normally Sell in the USA but have occasionally shipped packages internationally.

Plants and Fish I only sell in Florida at this time and I am not set up to ship fish yet.

Return and Refund Policy

I try very hard to quickly answer questions about products before the sale. If you are uncertain about a product please ask, I want to make sure that what you buy is what you need and what will actually work for you.

If you buy a product and change your mind about it later and want to return it, I will have to charge a re-stocking fee and I can only accept returns on unused items. I can only make refunds for 60 days after the purchase through paypal. I do not refund the shipping or pay return shipping unless the reason for the return is on my end.

Please contact me for instructions before returning anything. If I'm not expecting something to come back, I won't know what to do with it if it actually makes it to me. Some packages are shipped direct from the manufacturer and simply mailing something back to them won't get you a refund.

If there is a problem with a product, please contact me so we can work something out. Some items are covered by warranty.

Automated Diversion Valves

These are three way pool valves that can have a motorized actuator attached to automate the operation of the valves.

This is handy for automating the flow to an indexing valve or simply alternating flow between two different locations without the need to turn the pump on/off all the time. This extends the life of the pump and impellers.

I’ve unfortunately had problems with the valves leaking too much and needing the O rings replaced every few weeks to keep from spraying enough water into the actuator to fail them. This has been a problem for me with the Pentair valves mounted with the actuator in front. So far with the Hayward Valve with the actuator mounted on top and only getting gravity pressure, I have not had a leak yet. I do not have a good supplier for the valves at the moment but I am searching as well as searching for a good controller to work with them.

If you are into electronics, you can probably make your own timer.
I’ll Send you a pdf of the block diagram, parts list and info about how I did my timers for $15.

Or you can patch together any timer plus a relay and a 24 VAC power supply to run the actuator but that can become a bit cumbersome if you are trying to also make it weatherproof.
