Warranty/Guarantee Info

Because we only stock items made by ourselves, you should not have to use the guarantee/warranty of your purchase.  Gecko Plastics displays this information for each item on display.  In the unlikely event that it is necessary to fall back on the guarantee/warranty, here is what you should know:


  • It is serviced by the manufacturer, Gecko Plastics.
  • A guarantee is an agreement between the Customer and the Manufacturer that defective or damaged goods will be repaired/replaced (at the expense of the Manufacturer), subject to certain conditions, within a certain time frame, at the Manufacturer’s discretion.
  • The guarantee covers poor workmanship/ manufacturing faults only, and does not include misuse of the goods or failure to follow manufacturer’s
  • The guarantee does not cover a defect as a result of poor quality raw material. We purchase only the best raw materials in good faith and we have no control over the manufacturing process of the raw material.
  • The guarantee does not cover any consequential damages incurred as a result of any failure of our products.
  • The guarantee is only valid for the original purchaser of the product uon presentation of the proof of purchase.



  • A warranty is the agreement between the Customer and the Manufacturer that promises to repair/replace the item purchased, within a specified time period. The Customer normally contributes to warranty costs.
  • The warranty is in effect as soon as the guarantee period has lapsed. The warranty period of an item varies drastically between models and manufacturers.  The longer the warranty period, the better the quality of the item (tank).  It is not an indication of the lifespan of your tank, but of the quality.
  • Gecko Plastics will replace/repair the item according to their warranty. If only the lid is faulty , then a new lid only will be supplied. If the tank has failed due to a manufacturing fault then it will be replaced with a new tank of the same size.

How to claim a faulty item:

  • Please keep your invoice/proof of purchase in a safe place. You will need it for guarantee/warranty purposes. You will not be able to claim without such proof of purchase.
  • Contact our Customer Care Services with details. In the event of such a claim, Gecko Plastics will assist you to solve the problem as quickly as possible
  • In case of a replacement under guarantee by Gecko Plastics, Gecko Plastics will deliver a new product and pick up the defective one at no charge to you, the customer.
  • If your specific tank has been discontinued, it might be necessary for you to re-select another similar item to replace the defective one.
  • Should your purchase needs to be repaired, it will be collected and re-delivered at no extra charge.


Other instances generally not covered by the guarantee/warranty:

  • Damage caused by abuse or incorrect installation or application
