If you come up empty-handed, contact us as soon as possible so we can investigate. We want to make sure you get what you paid for! If you received all of the products in your order but are missing a part (a piece of tubing, for instance), please contact us so we can get you the missing component. Sometimes we have spare parts in our warehouse; other times we may have the manufacturer send it to you directly from their factory. Every situation is a bit different, but the bottom line is we will make sure you have a complete, fully-functional product. If the missing part is something minor you can easily pick up from a local store, we may offer you a partial refund. Either way, we will find a solution that makes you happy.
