San Diego – Nov. 24, 2014 – Zodiac® Pool Systems, Inc., has reached a settlement agreement with plaintiffs which, after court approval, will bring to a close Zodiac’s involvement in two class actions that resulted from an earlier FTC investigation alleging that PoolCorp had used its position as the largest distributor in the swimming pool products industry to limit competition. Zodiac settled this matter to avoid protracted litigation and the expense that results from antitrust lawsuits, even for defendants who ultimately prevail at trial.

For warranty information specific to Nature2 products, other than Nature2 Fusion Soft, please see the owner's and installation manuals for those products.
Unless otherwise indicated in the relevant product manual or quick start guide, this warranty applies only to products installed and serviced by
a contractor who is licensed and qualified in pool equipment by the jurisdiction in which the product will be installed, where such state or local
requirements exists. In the event no such state or local requirement exists, the installer and maintainer must be a professional with sufficient
experience in pool equipment installation and maintenance. This warranty applies only to products purchased and utilized in the 50 United States
and Canada, is limited to the first retail purchaser, is not transferable, and does not apply to products that have been moved from their original
installation sites. The liability of Zodiac shall not exceed the replacement of the defective product or its parts, and does not include transportation
costs, costs for labor to service or repair the defective product, or any items or materials required to make the repair including, but not limited to,
refrigerant and other expendables. Zodiac is not responsible for charges or delays incurred when a servicer is unable to perform service due to
lock outs, animals, intolerable pool or spa water temperature when entry into pool or spa is required to perform service, service refusals, etc. No
reimbursements will be made for loss and/or usage of water, fuel or other resources resulting from product defect. A third party service provider
may charge the end-user customer for parts and/or labor required to resolve any issue not covered under warranty, such as improper installation.
Zodiac is not responsible for these charges. Product discoloration, or any other cosmetic or superficial damage or deterioration, regardless of its
cause, is not covered by this warranty. This warranty does not cover failures, defects, malfunctions or complaints resulting from any of the following:
This is the only warranty given by Zodiac. No one is authorized to make any other warranties on behalf of Zodiac. IMPLIED WARRANTIES,
INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES LISTED ABOVE. Some states and/or provinces do not allow limitations on how long
an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Zodiac expressly disclaims and excludes any liability for consequential,
incidental, indirect, or punitive damages for breach of any expressed or implied warranty. In no event shall Zodiac be liable for incidental or
consequential damages of any nature, including damage to vinyl liners, plaster, aggregate-based pool surfaces, tile, stone, coping, fixtures,
skimmers or skimmer covers, plumbing, drains, equipment covers or shelters, landscaping, animals, plants, or dwellings. Some states and/or
provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. Certain vinyl
liner patterns are particularly susceptible to rapid surface wear or pattern removal caused by objects coming into contact with the vinyl surface,
including pool brushes, pool toys, floats, fountains, chlorine dispensers, and automatic pool cleaners. Some vinyl liner patterns can be seriously
scratched or abraded by rubbing the surface with a pool brush. Ink from the pattern can also rub off during the installation process or when it
comes into contact with objects in the pool. Zodiac is not responsible for, and this warranty does not cover, pattern removal, cuts, abrasions or
markings on vinyl liners.
