Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a spa water heater from Nathaans Pool Supply on May14 for $ 156.98 plus $12.00 shipping. The heater was delivered and I installed it.A tag was attached saying ( no returns on electrical items if installed) The heater is electric but how am I to determine if it works if I don't install it.I did check the continuity of the element and for shorts to ground, all was well.Once installed it did heat up for 10 minutes and then tripped the ground fault protector breaker.I am a retired electrician of 40 years so I am experienced. I checked it for a short to ground and found it to be shorted to ground. Once it cooled it worked again for a few minutes then the short came back. I sent an e mail to ******s and it was immediatly answered with-NO REFUNDS-I called on the phone and was again denied. The unit is faulty and I would like another one or a refund.

Desired Settlement: A refund or a replacement

Business Response:

To whom it may concern:

Responding to the complaint.  Mr. ******** has not reported the information regarding ******s Pool Supply Inc. return policy on electrical products.  When an invoice is enclosed with the item ordered, there is a policy label attached to the invoice which states the following:







This information is on all invoices. As it shows, Mr. ******** did not state all the information on the return

policy. He was also told that if he could produce the original package with the item number and description that was on the sticker

on the item there might be something that could be done dealing with the original manufacturer. Mr. ******** said he no longer had the original

packaging. Without that information there was no way to know what distributor the item was purchased from.

******s Pool Supply Inc should not be held at fault for this.



Consumer Response: I am rejecting this response because: I was not informed that the item was a discontinued item making it not returnable. I only found this out after searching for a replacement. I do have the original packaging but there was never any sticker as they say. ******s knew that this item was a discontinued item and has been for some time. Thay advertise themselves as a -HARD TO FIND- supplyer of pool items.

I asked for a RETURN AUTHORIZATION number and was told NO REFUND on electrical items. Heater cores are time sensitive and tend to break down in years. 
How can ******s sell a discontinued item which has been sitting on a shelf for a long time and then say NO RETURN?
They know which distributer the item was purchased from. ******s purchased it. That is the business of ******s - To sell HARD to FIND POOL ITEMS>

Business Response:

The item was not classified as a discontinued item on the invoice.  The return policy does state that discontinued items cannot be returned and are sold as is, but this was not the case.   All this information is in the return policy on the website. This was and is an electrical item that the return policy states cannot be returned.  Mr. Krawcyzk NOW is stating that he has the original packaging, when he told Mr. ******s that he did not have it, but the original packaging has no sticker information. If he has the original packaging, the sticker information would be on the packaging.  ******s Pool Supply Inc purchases items from various distributors and without the packaging sticker, the distributor cannot be identified.

A copy of the invoice is attached for review. 

******s Pool Supply Inc.

Consumer Response: I am rejecting this response because

You run a business that will not back up your product. To sell an item marked- not returnable if installed- is basically criminal.
To sell an item marked- not returnable if electric- is wrong. You are a deceitful company without morals. 
That is like saying if I buy a TV, install it and it blows every circuit breaker in the house, it is just too bad._NO RETURN IF INSTALLED .
The TV is electric so -NO RETURN
Mr. ****** should be ashamed of himself. Your staff should be ashamed of themselves. You know that you sold me a defective part and will not stand by your product.
People should be made aware of your policy. You are a disgusting American hiding behind your business ways.
America is no place for a business that lives on your business practices. You stink of greed .
Exposing you is the only way to cure you.
