Your Investment Is Well-Protected !
As you probably know, all warranties are not created equal. When you choose 20th Century Pools, you don’t ever have to worry about any defective materials or workmanship we’re confident in the products and services that we offer… and our warranty backs it up!
Don’t forget that we’ve been in business for more than 30 years. Many of the very first pools that we built in the 1980’s are still in great shape and get regular use. While dozens of pool builders go out of business each year, you can be confident that 20th Century Pools will be here in the future to stand by every swimming pool that we build. Remember that anyone can offer a “lifetime” warranty, but if they’re not in business for the duration of your pool’s life, then your warranty is worthless.
NEW POOL CONSTRUCTION LIMITED WARRANTY
LIMITED STRUCTURAL WARRANTY
20th Century Pools warrants that the gunite or concrete swimming pool shell will remain structurally sound for as long as you own your pool. Structurally sound is defined as maintaining the structural integrity of the concrete swimming pool shell so as to withstand all normal loads or stresses as anticipated by our approved engineering plans. Upon written demand by Buyer, 20th Century Pools will perform necessary tests to determine if the concrete swimming pool shell is sound. If it is found not to be sound, 20th Century Pools will, at no cost to Buyer, perform repairs necessary to restore its structural integrity. If testing procedures show that the concrete swimming pool shell is sound, Buyer will pay costs of testing and repair. 20th Century Pools does not warrant against damage to the pool shell caused by failure to maintain proper water levels, underground water tables rising above the lowest point of the pool or damages caused by earth or fill ground movement, earthquake, acts of God, or acts of others. The term “concrete swimming pool shell” does not include trim coping (concrete or masonry applied to the structure for aesthetic purposes), tile, coloring, or decking.
LIMITED EQUIPMENT WARRANTY
The Hayward Pool Products line of Pumps, Filters, Heaters, Pool Cleaners, Salt Chlorinator systems, LED loghts, and Electronic Controls are backed by a three-year parts and labor warranty (strongest in the Pool Industry), beginning on the day of plaster installation, for any defects in materials or workmanship. Equipment other than the Hayward Pool Products line is covered by manufacturer’s warranties for not less than 12 months from date of pool plaster.

LIMITED CONCRETE & MASONRY WARRANTY
Decks, plaster, walls, stucco, coping and all other masonry products are warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of installation.
