How long is the warranty on my Roots blower and what does it cover?

The manufacturer’s warranty on Roots blowers can be found below.  This warranties the blower against manufacturing defects, but does not cover normal wear and tear or damage caused by improper use or maintenance.

A common issue we see in the carpet cleaning industry is rust inside the blower, which is not covered by Howden’s Roots warranty. To avoid this issue, it is important to operate the blower dry for at least 10 minutes prior to shutdown and ensure no carryover (water or debris) from the separator is ingested by the machine.
