On-Line Terms and Conditions

All prices shown are each or per single item (unless otherwise stated by the word 'pair' in the description), there are many pictures on our site that show two or even three images of a given product, these are for identification purposes only.

BESPOKE products are non returnable, please double check before ordering, we do not want you left with a part if it is not right for you.
Please note,
Bespoke* parts are procured by us at your request and order in specifically for you and are therefore not returnable
Bespoke parts delivery will be extended (as we need to get the part in for you) details are on the webpage related to each bespoke product.
We have little control over bespoke parts so delivery may from time to time overrun slightly (or has been the case during 2021/22 significantly) if this part is time critical we would rather you did not order it as we can only offer guideline at the moment to delivery times. If you cannot allow us and the manufacturer a little wiggle room please do not order. Any order is accepted on this understanding.
Bespoke parts cannot be cancelled once an order has been placed (as in most cases we pay our supplies for bespoke parts upfront), if however a delivery has become significantly protracted over and above the expected lead time and you wish to cancel please email shop@lunns.net with your request and we will look at this for you (if the part has been ship to us, assembled, manufactured or production run set up, cancellation we not be possible).
Bespoke parts are not available on next day delivery (as not stocked and simply not possible on that basis).
* Bespoke parts are not stocked, as sales of any the bespoke are so low that the cost of the part makes it unviable for us to carry this part in stock.
* Bespoke parts are in effect tailor-made, tailor-assmbled or tailor-order AT YOUR REQUEST for your order (as are either manufactured at YOUR request for your order, assembled at YOUR request for your order or procured and shipped into us at S.A.Lunn Ltd at YOUR request for your order).
Any part that states 'N.B. This part is not carried in stock' is by definition a bespoke part and is covered by the rule above.

All dimensions are rounded to the nearest half millimeter.

It is the except norm in the UK that Hot is on the left and Cold on the right, all taps by UK manufacturers or importers which have passed the WRAS or siminlar UK approval will have the same handing and therefore all hot and cold parts on our website are to the same handing.
If you Hot and Cold are reversed you must make allowances for this when ordering.

Please ensure when you order any part that YOU are happy that it is the correct part, any advise or identification by us or a third party should only be taken as a guide and YOU must therefore ensure you double check that the part you are ordering is correct for your tap/cistern etc.

Check the condition of your package before signing to ensure the package is sound, we have had several cases of a jiffy bag or box being signed for with no contents or lost parts where the packaging has been damaged. The carriers will not accept a claim for this.
Do not sign for a damaged package (unless you are happy the goods are in tact and not missing any parts, we are unable to claim for damaged packages and therefore cannot ourselves accept any such claim.
The carriers would not accept a claim for this box as they say they would not attempt to deliver a package in this state (and would declare it as damaged rather than deliver it) and no one in their right mind would sign for a package in this state.
Unfortunately this does seem to be a reasonable stance.

Due to a volume of proof of delivery (POD) requests received we now charge for copies of signatures for POD which we have to obtain after having gone through a GPDR procedure.
There are two charges for the two stages of POD.
Stage one for a signature (on orders over £50.00)
Stage two where the signature is denied and GPS tracking is pulled up for further POD (which the carriers will declare as sufficient evidence of POD).
Stage One POD is £10.00 (Fully refundable if delivery has not been made and or delivery has not been attempted).
Stage Two POD is £20.00 (Fully refundable if delivery has not been made and or delivery has not been attempted).
Payment details will be sent upon request of stage one and or stage two.
POD must be requested within 4 months of the order date.

We recommend all parts are fitted by a qualified plumber, further more any guarantee assumes installation by a plumber (if parts are not fitted by a qualified plumber no guarantee is in place).

On rare occasions (due to stock issues etc.) we may send substitute products, any substitute item will be a direct replacement for the part ordered and or will be similar in design.
Also on rare occasions bespoke items/parts may have cosmetic changes which have no control over (as these are generally rare parts for us).

Most goods are sent by MyHermes or Parcelforce *.
Next day deliveries are by Royal Mail Special Delivery or Parcelforce **.

In short please examine upon delivery.

Re Returns Policy (for non faulty goods) - See separate link (above) for further info.

Spec Up charge is not refundable, see details on relevant webpage for full explanation.

Faulty Goods
Please call us on 01252 548711 before removing faulty parts.
If you do have a part you believe to be faulty please do not take it apart as this will invalidate the guarantee.
Tap and shower cartridges,valves and or cassettes are only guaranteed for one month. WHY; If you have a faulty cartridge, valve or cassette the faulty will be evident immediately upon installation, thereafter all sorts of outside forces come into play that cannot be legistaled for which are FAR more likley than the Ceramic Discs breaking, Rubber washer persihing, Brass or Plastic Housing breaking or cracking.
Further explanation of faulty below.

Ceramic Disc Cartridge/Cassette
As Ceramic Disc Cartridges and Cassettes are consumables and as sure only have a one month guarantee as any faulty of the cartridge will be apparent immediately upon installation i.e. the part will not turn on or off or start or stop the flow of water (as Ceramic Discs and or Rubber washer inside the cartridge housing cannot deteriorate and do not deteriorate for many years and if a Cartridges or Cassettes fails if will be due to outside factors).

Whilst any immediate issue (such as the water still running/dripping) may suggest a faulty part it should be pointed out that there are other issues that could cause such a fault.
The following issues are far more common than the product being faulty.
Running Water is most often caused by the seating washer (at the base of the tap cartridge) from the original part having been left behind in the tap body wilst removing the old cartridge/valve, this washer should ideally come out when removing the original cartridge however this is not always the case, there are also other parts of a tap cartridge that could be left in your tap (there is a danger that any new cartridge could be damaged by a part left behind (when removing the old cartridge so always look inside the tap for any loose parts before inserting the new part) including the aforementioned washer.
The brass tap body itself could have a hair line crack or rill (you will need to look that one up), if this is the case, no replacment part fill fix the issue.
All that said, faults do from time to time occur so mark your part with marker pen and return it so we can have a look at it and test it, if found to be faulty we will replace without question.

Dripping can be caused by the aforementioned but more likely is the presence of some foreign matter between the metal seating in the base of the tap and the seating washer at the base of your new cartridge.
It is recommended that a shot of compressed air is blasted across the metal seating and the seating washer visually checked for foreign matter prior to installation.
After installation any problems will almost certainly have been caused by your water supply having (carried some very small foreign matter which has) scoured the discs, or the discs having moved position (usually caused by over tightening during installation (fairly unlikely) and or over rotation of the tap when turning it on or off (quite likely)).
Water supply problems:
If the discs are scoured which is caused by grit particles or some other foreign matter in the water supply the cartridge will need replacing.
We nor the manufactures can be held libel for the quality of your water supply.
Disc movement problems: If the discs have moved it may be possible to resolve the issue (although to be fair it will probably only be temporary) by removing the discs and simply reinserting them, the discs when inserted will drop into their default position which is a groove in a metal housing however as they are rotated they may move again if the groove has become damaged, causing the same problem, however treating the tap gently by simply rotating the handle until the water flow stops rather than rotating the handle until it stops turning will reduce the disc movement.
Re Faulty Washer Valves
After initial installation any faulty would become immediately obvious.
Fitting a new washer valve will not cure your leak if the seating of your tap is damaged.
Thereafter any problems such as washers splitting/valve jamming will be due to overtightening of the valve.

Control Handles (aka On/Off Handles).
These do not come with a guarantee unless new cartridges are purchased at the same time.
(This is because there is no way of knowing how stiff your old valve or cartridge may be i.e. the old valve or cartridge will be stiffer than the original design spec. and there is of course no way to know how stiff your valve or cartridge has become, excessive stress on the new handle (due the stiffness) will undoubtedly have an effect on the life of the handle to a greater or lesser extent.
In addition this is possibly the reason why your handle became defective in the first place.
For this reason the handles whilst fit for purpose do not come with any warranty (as we cannot legislate for the condition of your valve) unless you by new valve at the same time and on the same order.

Flush Valves (FV), Flush Buttons and Flush Valve washers.
All the flush valve we sell have a 12 month guarantee if fitted (by a plumber) and used correctly.
Buttons and flush plates. If these are faulty it will become apparent immediately thereafter any (or rather most faults)are a wear and tear issue and therefore not covered by any warranty.
Flush valve washers do not have an 'in use guarantee' (but are covered against defects which are/would be evident at time of installation) as they are subject to fair wear and tear clause by all manufactures however we find this a rather hard pill to swallow so will look at any case on an individual basis and try and offer a suitable compromise where we can (we usually cannot offer said suitable compromise on bespoke product simply because these are not stocked and we have no wiggle room as regard negation with the manufacture).
We find a lot of issue are created where the wrong button has been used with the wrong flush valve or the button has been fitted incorrectly which can cause premature failure or continuous running or the flush valve not flushing.

Tap Finishes;
We recommend regular cleaning of tap parts (and all bathroom and kitchen fittings) with warm water and an unimplemented soft (non abrasive) cloth.
E Cloths or another microfibre cloth is ideal as it is gentle but effective for cleaning without scratching and needs only to be dampened with water to clean the product.
In short, clean only with water for all your tap & shower components (regardless of finish ((to include Mocca, Beige White, Chrome and Gold))
Washing up liquids, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel etc. can cause blemishes and damage to some tap finishes. Always completely rinse these off the fittings with clean water immediately after use.
Avoid getting household cleaning products on to your fittings, when using said cleaning products surrounding surfaces. Any splashes should be immediately rinsed with clean water and dried.
Only use lemon juice to remove lime scale. There are many cleaners on the market for removing heavy deposits of lime scale, before using such product you must accept this will effect the finish to a greater or lesser extent.

Bath Screen Seals (Note added 26.1.2016)
Only seals that say suitable for curved bath screens are suitable for curved bath screens.
