Spa Warranty

The Bullfrog Spa Limited Warranty is one of the best in its class. It is deductible-free so you won’t have to pay to have warranty work done on your spa. The Bullfrog Warranty is also not prorated, meaning the warranty is as strong at the end of the term as it is in the beginning.

Bullfrog International, LC (“Bullfrog”) extends warranty coverage solely to the end-user purchaser (“Owner”) of any portable Bullfrog Spa manufactured on or after January 1, 2007 for 2007 and later models installed for residential use in the United States or Canada.

Lifetime JetPak™ Plumbing Warranty

Bullfrog warrants the Bullfrog Spa JetPak™ Plumbing System not to leak for the life of the original retail purchaser of the spa. This warranty specifically covers leaks from all JetPak jet fittings and all JetPak plumbing. After three years from the spa purchase date, any defective JetPak components must be sent to Bullfrog for repair or replacement at no charge.

Lifetime Shell Structure and UniFrame™ Warranty

Bullfrog warrants the Bullfrog Spa shell not to leak and the injection- molded cabinet frame against degradation for the life of the original retail purchaser of the spa. After six years from the original spa purchase date, the defective spa must be sent to Bullfrog for repair at no charge. This warranty specifically covers leaks from the spa shell.

Six-Year Shell Surface Warranty

The cabinet corners, door and side panels are deemed Easily Removed Components, and when found defective, will be replaced free of charge at your authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer or by sending the defective component(s) to Bullfrog.

BlameFree™ Equipment Warranty

With the exception of intentional damage, Bullfrog unconditionally warrants the electrical and mechanical equipment (excluding the Spa&Yard™ Stereo System and the SpaMonitor™) of the Bullfrog Spa, along with its associated piping and fittings, against failure that would require repair or replacement for three years from the original spa purchase date.

Warranty Performance

Bullfrog or its authorized agent will repair or replace any malfunction or defective component on the Bullfrog Spa that is covered under the terms of this limited warranty and was purchased from an authorized Bullfrog spa dealer. In doing so, Bullfrog reserves the right, at its option, to either repair or replace the defective spa or component. If Bullfrog spas International, determines that the repair of the defect is not feasible, we reserve the right to instead provide a replacement spa equal in value to the original purchase price of the defective spa. In such an event costs for removal of the defective spa, shipping costs of the replacement spa and delivery will be the responsibility of the spa owner. Bullfrog reserves the right to use either new or reconditioned replacements components. In some situations, the servicing dealer may charge you a reasonable travel mileage fee. Any repair or replacement shall provide no new warranty coverage, but shall retain only the remaining portion of the original product’s warranty. Bullfrog’s Lifetime warranties provide coverage solely to the original retail purchaser of the spa and extend only for the length of his or her lifetime. If the original retail purchaser is not a natural person (i.e. Corporation, L.L.C., Family Trust, etc.), “life of the purchaser” shall mean ten years. To obtain warranty service, contact your authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer or Bullfrog and submit proof of purchase. Any defective spa or component sent directly to the factory for warranty repair must be pre-authorized by Bullfrog and must be freight prepaid. Return freight will be paid by Bullfrog on all warranted components and spas, excluding any spa returned that is more than six years after its purchase date. If the entire spa is sent to the factory for repair, all costs of removing and re-installing the spa at spa owner’s location will be the responsibility of the spa owner. Repair or replacement, as described above, shall be Bullfrog’s sole liability for any breach of this limited warranty.
