Please Note:- Warranty Limitations
All new inflatables sold have a limited manufacturers warranty, which is applicable against any defect in workmanship of the inflatable and against material defect for a period of one year from the shipping date. As of 1st March 2012 Pineapple Leisure Ltd launch the 3 Year Extended Warranty. Customers are to fill out their extended warranty form in full that accompanies the inflatable. This is then to be returned within 14 days in order to qualify for the extended warranty. Failure to return the form fully completed will result in the standard 12 month warranty standing. There are no exceptions and this is non-negotiable. All units should be inflated upon arrival and examined carefully. Any damage incurred through mishandling of the carrier or weather related damage is not the liability of ourselves. As we can not be held responsible if you select to use a carrier to transport the goods and they become lost or damage. Please report damage to the carrier immediately. Goods which are clearly visible as damaged at time of delivery should be "refused" and the couriers will then return to the factory. Goods kept by the customer which clearly appear damaged are then taken as being accepted in full.
We have the right to inspect the unit and if the defect has occured under the conditions listed in this limited warranty, we will determin whether it is practical to repair or replace the damaged or defective parts at the designated location that we have authorised. Any unit returned to us for inspection MUST be in clean, dry condition else it will not be able to be set up on our work tables ie if it is wet and dirty, and therefore will not be able to be inspected. We re-iterate that we will not be able to inspect, safety test or repair any dirty or wet inflatables under warranty due to Health & Safety reasons. A cleaning and drying charge applies at £50 plus VAT per hour to clean and dry any inflatable sent to us. Please remember as per handbook that inflatables are not to be used in heavy rain or strong winds because of Health Safety reasons, and to help prolong the life of the inflatable. Occasional light showers, and light breezes are acceptable so long as inflatables are not stored away wet.
Our warranty is not a guarantee that the product will not through use, handling and storage develop tears or punctures from time to time. The repair of which is the responsibility of the buyer. Improper maintenance, accidental abusive or negligent treatment or any repairs carried out without our prior consent at one of our recognised repair centres will invalidate the warranty of the inflatable. If after initial viewing we believe that the unit has been subject to improper use or incorrect maintenance or neglect, we reserve the right to terminate any warranty. Our decision with regards to all warranty claims is based on over a decade in the business, and is final. All inflatables we sell are strictly for children (note the user cannot be taller than the walls) up to the age of 11, unless ADULT is clearly stated. The Adult units may be used by children under 11, and over including teenagers and also adults. Adult units to have a maximum of 4 users on at any one time. This term is non-negotiable. The cost of shipping the units to and from the designated location for evaluation within the warranty period, is the sole responsibility of the buyer. All shipping costs will be the sole responsibility of the buyer. All activity castles and obstacle courses with items protruding ie bish bash and wall with holes etc, are not covered within the guarantee. Handpainted artwork is not covered under warranty. Sack truck/trolley's and crash mats carry a 28 day warranty. Printed crashmats need to be handled with care ie storage and transport. They are meant to be walked on with "socks only" as the decorative artwork can damage otherwise, which is not covered under the warranty. Generators carry a 3 month return to base warranty. Used/ex-demo inflatables carry a 3 month warranty. All warranties are return to base. As of 1st May 2004 extended warranties on inflatables have become available to purchase.

The 12 month and 3 year warranties covers stitching not the wear and tear on the PVC. Please note that the warranty is void if the warranty conditions are not met, and the 12 month warranty will then be the warranty that will apply.
Adult castles are suitable for adult use, so long as they are used appropriately. 15'x12' units - 2 adults maximum, 15'x15' units 3 adults maximum, 15'x18' units - 4 adults maximum. The castles are for bouncing up and down only - no horseplay. Maximum weight per adult - 12 stone.

The design, theme and colour scheme etc. on display: Close resemblance will be maintained to the designs and themes displayed on our website. However, all artwork is hand - painted therefore minor variations in designs, elements, brush work, color tone etc. may be present. As artworks are 100% hand-painted by our team of artists, you can expect some variations of around 5%-20%. This is accepted by the customers when placing an order, and returns will not be accepted due to variation from stock photos on our website.
Promotions can not be used with any other special offers, and we reserve the right to offer cash equivalent prizes in place of items when the original items become un-obtainable ie are sold out.
