    Understand your warranty.

    Our warranty boils down to this: we cover everything except your mistakes. Don’t drop the instrument onto a steel deck (this is an ‘accident’). Don’t use a CTD as a shovel to dig a hole (this is ‘mis-use’). Don’t try to fix things yourself (this is ‘over-enthusiasm’). We’ll fix anything else for free.

    The standard warranty has a duration of twelve months. Additional twelve and twenty-four-month extensions are available at the time of purchase. Within the warranty period, we will cover everything, including third-party equipment that you purchase from us. You cover the shipping back to us and that’s it!

    Send us an email to to request an RMA number before shipping the instrumentation back to us.

    standard repair costs.

    Our minimum repair charge is $150 CAD. This charge includes:

    • Comprehensive initial inspection
    • Verification of calibration status
    • Sensor functionality testing

    Minor repairs are also covered by this basic fee. If further repair work or re-calibration is necessary, you will be issued a service quote.

    Once you have given your authorization to proceed, we will complete the repair and return the instrument as soon as possible.

    Any units returned with low (or no) batteries will have new batteries installed, and the costs will be added to the repair invoice.
