Returns and Warranty

Returns and Exchanges

If you decide that the Skimdevil isn’t the best fit for your pool, we will provide a full refund of the original purchase price if it is returned within 30 days of the date of delivery.  To ensure a successful return, please make sure that the robot is in as-new condition and that you keep the original box. The Skimdevil must be returned in its original packaging in order to receive a full refund.

To start your return, please email support@skimdevil.com to obtain a return slip. We will email you a prepaid shipping label to affix to your return.

Returns must be made in the original packaging. If you no longer have the original packaging, there is an additional $30 per item repackaging fee.

Once the item is back at our warehouse it will be inspected by our team. Provided it is in as-new condition we will issue a refund less repackaging fees (if applicable). If the Skimdevil is damaged en route, we will assess the damages and provide a refund, less repair fees.

Exchanges

Things happen. We’re not perfect and sometimes our robots aren’t either. If you receive a faulty Skimdevil and would like to exchange it for a new one, it must be exchanged within 30 days from the date of delivery.

To receive a brand new Skimdevil Pure, please email support@skimdevil.com and indicate that you would like to exchange your current Skimdevil and what is wrong with it. We will send you a prepaid shipping label. Please ship it back to us, in its original packaging. Once we receive the faulty Skimdevil, we will ship you a brand new Skimdevil Pure.

Skimdevil Limited Warranty

Unlike peanut butter and jelly, robots + water are not always the best combination.  Things may happen with your Skimdevil. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with a warranty that covers issues, repairs, or defects, for two years from the robots’ date of delivery. Under this 2-year warranty, we will organize replacement parts, repair, and in some cases, a complete replacement Skimdevil.  If you need to send your Skimdevil in for a repair, under warranty, we will cover the cost of shipping and send you a shipping label. As of December 2020, this is the current Skimdevil warranty for all Skimdevil Pure robots only, not Skimdevil Camio robots, and could be subject to change for subsequent generations of Skimdevil.
