INSTALLATION SERVICE PERFORMED BY HYDROVIV PERSONNEL

  • Hydroviv's installers require Hydroviv products downstream of a properly functioning shutoff valve.
  • The installation procedure is limited to disconnecting the flexible cold water faucet supply line, connecting the supply line to the housing output, and connecting the housing input to the cold water shutoff valve.  The housing is either mounted to the inside of the cabinet using a bracket or positiioned in the corner of the cabinet without a bracket (customer request only).  Reasonable care will be taken to make the installation as tidy as possible.
  • At the end of the installation process, Hydroviv's installer will ask the customer to co-inspect the installation and remind the customer to periodically check for leaks.
  • After the installer leaves, it is the customer's sole responsibility to monitor the system for leaks.
  • In the unlikely event that a leak is found, it is the customer's responsibility to stop flow to the filter by turning off the cold water shutoff valve, and to open the cold water faucet to relieve pressure.

  • Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

    Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

    If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

    All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

    PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

    SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES


    In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

    However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

    For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

    In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

    As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

    Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

     RECOMMENDED ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

    • We recommend installing a pressure reducing valve before the undersink drinking water purification systems system. This will reduce the water pressure flow to the system and will prevent water pressure spikes, water hammering, and excessive water pressure build-up. The recommended operating water pressure range is 30-60 psi.  To avoid property damage, you may also utilize a leak detector.
    • Hydroviv drinking water filtration systems are built for performance, reliability and safety. For added safety, customers can purchase a leak detecting valve or leak detector.
    • Hydroviv point of use systems should be periodically cleaned inside the cartridge housings with a clean damp cloth.  Some customers may experience build up or film located on the outside of the cartridge.  This can vary based on existing water conditions and represents items being trapped by the cartridge and removed from the water.
