Your claim has been received and is being submitted to the manufacture Pool Heating Distributors “PhD” for review. This process typically takes up to 3 business days to complete. After the review process has been completed PhD’s warranty processing department will email you a “claim status notice” informing you whether your claim has been approved or denied.


Upon receiving an approved warranty claim status notice you will then be instructed to return the four corners, in the correct format, of each leaking panel back to PhD.
