Warranties On Irrigation Systems
When it comes to purchasing an irrigation system, a consideration that is often overlooked is the warranty that comes with it. Warranties can vary depending on the type of irrigation system, manufacturer, and installation company. It’s essential to understand the different types of warranties that come with the system and review the documents for exclusions and limitations before making a purchase to avoid surprises later. In this article, we will explore the different types of warranties that come with irrigation systems and provide information on the warranties that Reinke offers on their products.
Types of Warranties
1. Manufacturer’s Warranty: This is the warranty that comes with the irrigation system from the manufacturer. The duration of a manufacturer’s warranty can range from one year to several years, depending on the manufacturer. The manufacturer’s warranty covers any manufacturing defects or malfunctions that occur within the specified time frame.
2. Installation Warranty: An installation warranty is offered by the company that installs your irrigation system. This warranty covers any problems or issues that arise within a specific time frame due to improper installation. The duration of an installation warranty typically lasts from one to three years.
3. Workmanship Warranty: A workmanship warranty covers issues that result from the quality of the work done during the installation process. For example, this warranty covers problems such as leaks or issues with the system’s water pressure. Workmanship warranties generally last from one to three years.
4. Extended Warranty: An extended warranty is an additional warranty that can be purchased from the manufacturer or installation company. This type of warranty extends the coverage provided by the original warranty and covers repairs or replacement due to malfunctions, defects, or other issues. The duration of extended warranties can last up to 10 years and usually comes at an additional cost.
