Why is there a $500 order min for scheduling out orders on the web?
Scheduled shipments each incur their own shipping charges which drives up total cost of the order. On smaller orders, the percentage of shipping compared to total order cost is quite high. We have put the threshold in place to help contain costs. If you have a smaller order that you must schedule for a future date, please contact customer service at 800-328-2724.
When I placed my order, I briefly saw an order number that is different from the number on my email confirmation. Which is correct?
When you place an order, you will briefly see a temporary order number while your transaction is being processed by the system. Once processed, the permanent order number will be assigned. This number will then appear on your email confirmation and in your order history.

What is CA Proposition 65, and what is Waytek's policy?
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.
Proposition 65 also prohibits companies that do business with California from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.
Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987.
Businesses are required to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical, unless the business can show that the anticipated exposure level will not pose a significant risk of cancer or is significantly below levels observed to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. (OEHHA.ca.gov)
Waytek, Inc., a distributor, is committed to providing clear and reasonable warnings on the products we resell in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 and Proposition 65 warning label requirements. Such warnings shall be on packaged product, on our company website and/or on any publication produced after August 30, 2018 for products known or unknown to contain chemicals that may cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.
Waytek, Inc. shall, with due diligence, obtain the most current and accurate product information from our suppliers related to Proposition 65 requirements. Waytek believes our products are not harmful when used as designed, but will nonetheless provide warnings to inform our customers of any potential harm to which they may be exposed.
