Our Warranty


Home> Support> Our Warranty


We take pride in our products. We understand that a lot rides on their performance – from efficiency to safety. So when you have our lines, you can rest assured we have your back. 

Specifically with our Krakenhammer® municipal products, we include a 10-L and/or 2-10-L warranty – the best in the industry. 


Mercedes Textiles Ltd will repair or replace, at our discretion, covered fire hose products that incur accidental damage within this two-year warranty period. Accidental damage can occur during fire suppression in the form of cuts, abrasion, or other hazards that are present while fighting fires which could render the products unfit for use. 

Contamination of hose that has come in contact with fuels, toxic chemicals and blood borne fluids are not covered under this warranty. Contaminated hose should be considered as an insurance claim as they are unsafe to handle, prohibited to transport, and should be disposed of as dictated by local authority/jurisdiction. Hose and couplings that are used for purposes other than fire-fighting, the use for which it is intended, including Training Academy use and damage incurred due to hose testing operations, shall not be covered in this warranty. Mercedes Textiles, Hydro-Wick Industries and/or Highwater Hose reserve the right of final decision in cases of any ambiguity concerning a damaged product.



Mercedes Textiles and/or Highwater Hose guarantee these fire hose products to be free from defects in material and/or workmanship for a period of ten (10) years from date of invoice. Any item believed to contain a defect must be returned to Mercedes Textiles and/or Highwater Hose for examination and evaluation. If the merchandise is defective as a result of a manufacturing defect, Mercedes Textiles and/or Highwater Hose will repair or replace the defective product.


Mercedes Textiles and/or Highwater Hose will provide a lifetime warranty against liner delamination for the fire hose products mentioned below. Delamination meaning the waterway liner has separated or partially separated from the hose fabric.
