Policies and Shipping

Shipping Policies

 Most orders are shipped from our warehouse in New Mexico. We warehouse  over 90% of the items that we offer, however, some orders are drop shipped directly from our  vendors in various states within the continental US. 

FREE SHIPPING OVER $49.00 Orders totaling $50.00 or more are eligible for Free Shipping.
Offer excludes all liners.
This offer is only valid in the 48 contiguous states. 

Expedited Shipping All orders requesting expedited shipping (Overnight, 2nd Day, or 3  Day), must be received by 1:00pm Mountain time for us to ship out the day  of order. Orders requesting expedited shipping received after 1:00pm  will be processed the next business day. Orders placed on Saturday and  Sunday or Holidays will be processed on the next business day. Free shipping applies to continental US delivery addresses only and is via the carrier of our choice. Free shipping is defined as included  shipping. Items too large for UPS or Fedex ground delivery will show delivery  charges under FedEx Freight. Freight deliveries requiring a telephone call by the carrier to setup delivery, should choose residential address  in the dropdown menu. Customer are responsible for the removal of  freight deliveries from the back of the common carrier. Orders to Hawaii and Alaska are only shipped via Second Day Air. If  the item is listed as 'Free Shipping' and your delivery address is in  Hawaii or Alaska shipping costs will appear in your shopping cart.  Items listed as 'Free Shipping' do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska for  free. At this time we are unable to ship to FPO, APO, Canada, Guam,  Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, etc. We ship via Federal Express and UPS, neither of these carriers will  deliver to a PO Box. We therefore need a physical 'ship to' address to  process your order. Address Corrections Please double check your shipping address before completing your  order. If any aspect of the shipping address needs to be changed after  the order leaves our warehouse, FedEx Ground and FedEx Express charge a  minimum  fee plus all additional shipping charges. UPS Freight, used to move large items, charges a minimum  fee plus all additional freight  charges. These fees will be the sole responsibility of the customer.  

Return Policy

 NO Restocking Fees! You may exchange or return product for a refund (excluding shipping  and handling charges) within 90 days of receiving the item. (See  additional terms below) All items must be in new, unused, untested condition. Items tested in any manner are not returnable. If you are returning an item in which we paid the shipping/handling  charge you will be responsible for the outbound shipping charge that we,  as the shipper, incurred to have your order delivered. This amount will  be deducted from your refund. The following items are not returnable; special orders, pond liner,  liner underlay, tubing, books, aquatic plants, liquids, fish food and  plant food. Every return requires a return authorization number (RA) from us.
