4. Prices: Except where expressly agreed, all prices are subject to change without notice. If there is a delay in approval of drawings related to this contract beyond 30 days, an escalation in selling price may occur due to a rise in labor and/or material prices.

9. LIMITED WARRANTY: Seller warrants that the seamless molded polyethylene shell of the Product shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship and will not peel, chip, rust or need painting for a period of TWENTY (20) years from the date of shipment. Since the Product, once in operation is under the sole control of the User, this warranty is further subject to and shall be applicable only if all of the following conditions are met:

Motors carry a normal manufacturer’s FIVE (5) year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials beginning from the date of shipment and subject to the same conditions of proper use and operation as other components of the Product. Bearings, pulleys, belts or other moving parts and components are sold without any warranty.

No expense, liability or responsibility will be assumed by the Seller for repairs made by other than Seller’s agent without written authority from the Seller.

The sole purpose of stipulated exclusive remedy shall be to provide the User with free repair and replacement of defective parts in the manner provided herein. This exclusive remedy shall not be deeded to have failed of its essential purpose so long as the Seller is willing and able to repair or replace defective parts in the prescribed manner.
