Reef Check Sea Store Return Policy

All returned Items must be in the original packaging or in a mail-safe box or envelope. Reef Check is not responsible for any items that are missing or damaged during return shipment. Customer agrees that all returned products will be 100% complete, in re-saleable condition. Accessories such as the warranty card, software CD, manuals and any other components within the original packaging must be included in the return. If a promotional free item came with the product, that must be returned as well. Reef Check may refuse the refund if the product is not returned with the complete materials and packaging. In the event the merchandise is sold out and unavailable at time of exchange, Reef Check will refund the cost of merchandise to the customer. Please allow up to 10 business days for these transactions to take place.

How to get a RMA number

A Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number is required for all returns:

You must obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization number within our return policy period. Reef Check will not accept returns without a RMA number; materials without one will be sent back at sender's expense. RMAs are valid for 15 days, within which time the return item must be received by Reef Check.

Defective Items

Returning a Defective Item:

Unless otherwise specified, we gladly accept exchanges on defective products within 30 days of the purchase date. Reef Check will have sole discretion as to the credit methods. We may issue a credit, ship a replacement, or we may repair the item and return it to you.

Non-Defective Items

Returning a Non-Defective Item:

You may return most new, unopened items sold by Reef Check within 30 days from the invoice date for a full refund. A 15% restocking fee may be applied to all returns for a refund if the reason for the return is due to customer error, such as ordering the wrong item and/or change in item preference.
