Most orders within the continental United States are shipped via UPS Ground/Home at the flat rate cost of $11.95 on the entire order. No matter how much you order, your shipping/handling fee will normally be the flat $11.95 amount. This fee truly only covers insurance and handling. There may be additional freight fees for certain unusually heavy items over 40 lbs., such as pool dome enclosures, vinyl pool liners, some pumps, heaters and filters to name a few. Additionally, UPS charges shipping based on item packaging dimensions and not exclusively by weight. This applies to Lomart and Embassy pool parts as well as other products. You will be notified prior to your order being fully processed what the total freight will be on aforementioned items. Additional shipping will not be charged until the card holder has given approval. Items in stock will be shipped the same business day if the order is received by 3 P.M. Pacific Time. (Please note not all items are in stock and some items may have to be made to order. This includes such items as all pool liners, swimming pools and decks. If you would like to inquire if an item is in stock or an estimated shipment time frame, feel free to give us a call before you place your order at 1-800-918-7665).
International orders may or may not be available, depending on product. Freight quoted on an International Order only covers freight and does NOT include any taxes, tariffs, duties, customs fees or other fees that the country of destination may impose. An additional handling fee of $25.00 may be charged for international credit cards.
You will receive an email verification of the order you placed provided you type in your email address correctly and you don't have email blockers in place. On canceled or returned items shipping/handling fees are nonrefundable. Orders paid by personal checks will incur a $25.00 fee should the check be returned for nonpayment.

Pool chemicals, fencing kits, domes, decks and above ground pools are not returnable.

You may feel free to cancel any order placed as long as you notify us the same day you place the order, before close of business. If you cancel your order the next business day or later, you will incur a cancellation fee equal to 5% of the total amount of your order. This fee is to cover the credit card processing costs. Because we make every effort to ship, or to have shipped, all items as quickly as possible, this cancellation policy has been instituted. Orders canceled after we, or a third party, have already started production on or shipped the item(s) will incur an additional 15% to 20% restocking fee and you will be responsible for the shipping costs incurred in both directions.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
