How is my warranty registered with Nuflow?

Your warranty registration is registered to Nuflow Technologies 2000 Pty Ltd by your local Nuflow franchise team.

For conventional residential repairs, your local Nuflow franchise will provide the necessary written warranty information and video footage after completion of your job to Nuflow Technologies 2000 Pty Ltd at the same time it provides this warranty information to you.

For all other non-conventional residential repairs and all commercial repairs, a job specification request will be sent to Nuflow Technologies 2000 Pty Ltd by your local Nuflow franchise at time of inspection.

Upon receiving this information Nuflow will assess the information and issue the warranty period and terms prior to commencement of work.

Final registration of warranty will then be processed after work is completed and the required paperwork and video footage is supplied to Nuflow Technologies 2000 Pty Ltd by your local Nuflow franchise.

As a customer it is important that you keep the following documentation as a record of your job:

  • Copy of quote, invoice and payment receipt from the Nuflow franchise that conducted the installation work.
