Notwithstanding the foregoing, the colors and finishes of the Products may vary within a reasonable scope due to unavoidable color variations in different production batches, and such variations shall not constitute a material defect. This limited warranty is limited solely to the original Customer with proof of purchase and is not transferable.

The foregoing limited warranty is subject to the Customer’s proper storage, transportation, handling and use of the Products as the same are defined within Company’s then-current published guides and instructions for use and care. The limited warranty does not include defects due to normal wear and tear, abuse or misuse, mishandling, neglect, accident, fire, lightning, sunlight or other natural hazard, delivery or transportation damage, failure to follow applicable directions or instructions, or improper or inadequate cleaning, maintenance, care, repairs, modifications, or use beyond a Product’s intended use.  Please note that since the Structural Frame is made from steel rust may occur over time.  As such, this limited warranty does not include rust or defects due to the same.

1.4. LIMITED WARRANTY CLAIMS PROCEDURE: To obtain performance under this limited warranty, Customer shall notify Company in writing (to Liberty Garden Products, Inc., 1161 South Park Drive, Kernersville, NC 27284, Attn: Customer Service / Warranty Department), by email (to customerservice@libertygardenproducts.com), or by telephone (to (336) 992-3595) with a full description of the defect that is covered by warranty and a copy of the dated proof of purchase of the applicable product.

• Company shall review each such claim and issue Customer a return merchandise authorization (“RMA”) in the event that the described defect or condition merits warranty review as determined by Company.  Customers who have been issued a RMA shall, at Company’s election, return the covered item to the same physical address listed above for reporting initial claims.  Company shall not accept any returned product without a RMA.

• Upon receipt, Company will evaluate the returned product(s) to determine if there is a warranty claim and, if so, how Company wishes to remedy the same.  During a covered product’s respective limited warranty period, Company will, at Company’s sole and absolute option and discretion,

(1) repair the defective component or product without charge or (2) replace the defective component or product without charge.  Refunds are not available pursuant to this limited warranty.

COMPANY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND. IF COMPANY CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM IMPLIED WARRANTIES UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. The Company does not assume or authorize any person to assume for them any other liability in connection with the Products.

2. EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:

IN NO EVENT, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHER LEGAL THEORY, SHALL COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES TO OTHER PROPERTY, INCONVENIENCE, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, GOODWILL OR USE, INCURRED BY CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR IMPOSED BY STATUTE, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions or limitations on the duration of implied warranties or conditions, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to Customer. In jurisdictions that limit the scope of or preclude limitations or exclusion of remedies or damages, or of liability, such as liability for gross negligence or willful misconduct or do not allow implied warranties to be excluded, the limitation or exclusion of warranties, remedies, damages or liability set forth above are intended to apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. This limited warranty gives the Customer specific legal rights, and the Customer may also have other rights that vary by state, country or other jurisdiction.

If any provision of this limited warranty is held to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will be enforced to the extent possible consistent with its stated intention, or, if incapable of such enforcement, will be deemed to be severed and deleted from this limited warranty, while the remainder of the terms of this limited warranty will continue in full force and effect.

Care Instructions

Helpful tips for taking care of your Liberty Garden™ hose storage unit:

Rust
Your Liberty Garden™ hose storage unit will give you many seasons of reliable and functional hose storage. As with any steel product, there is always the chance for rust developing over time. The finish on your Liberty™ hose storage unit is designed for industrial applications, but even the toughest of coatings can be compromised by scratches. Such minor surface damage can occur in shipping despite our best efforts. We have found that most scratches occur during assembly and/or installation (in the case of wall mounted hose reels). If the base metal is exposed to the elements long enough, rust will develop. In the case of wall mounted reels, be sure to use stainless steel mounting hardware. Also, remember to use the correct size and quantity of hardware to properly support the total weight of the unit. A standard 100' length of garden hose weighs approximately 15 pounds. Filled with water, the additional weight can exceed 20 pounds. The mounting hardware must be able to support the combined weight of the unit itself, hose, plus water. We recommend that you periodically inspect your reel for any surface damage. Scratches can easily be repaired by using standard automotive touch-up body paint. Some of our most loyal customers recommend that at the end of each season, the unit be cleaned thoroughly and painted with a clear acrylic paint.

Two other sources of rust acceleration are exposing the reel to yard fertilizers and leaving your hose storage unit standing in grass. Rinse off your hose storage unit after it comes in contact with freshly fertilized grass. For your hose cart, we recommend that you park it on solid and dry ground. Leaving it standing on top of vegetation promotes condensation on the undercarriage of the unit.

Leaks
Your Liberty Garden™ hose storage unit is manufactured with the finest quality components available. All components are manufactured to rigorous quality standards not common in other consumer grade hose storage units available today. When you install your Liberty Garden™ hose storage unit, be sure the hose washers are in place and all fittings are secure. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as you might damage the components. If you live in more temperate climates, be sure to drain the unit of any residual water before storing. DO NOT EXPOSE THE UNIT TO FREEZING TEMPERATURES while water remains in the plumbing system.
