QR CODES

Illadelph has instituted a QR code on the outside of all packaging to combat constant counterfeiting taking place in the pipe industry. With this QR code now being available, the buyer is able to scan the product before purchasing to verify its authenticity. The code will immediately link back to Illadelph’s official website and will list the store that the pipe was originally assigned to. As long as it lists the correct store’s name the buyer can be assured that it is authentic. If the QR code has been duplicated or counterfeited it will link to a different shop or will not scan at all. This will provide 100% security to the customer before finalizing any Illadelph purchase.

This place is listed online as carrying the Illadelph brand which is false as they are not an authorized retailer. Taken from a customer review: "The staff knows little to nothing about the products they sell, so if you plan on buying from them, you better make sure you know more than they do, which wouldn't be saying much. You want a return or refund? Too bad, people in hell have a better chance of getting ice water. They will interrogate you and try to convince you that just aren't using the product correctly, even if there is a legitimate defect with the product itself."

Carrying many varieties of completely fake and illegitimate Illadelph water pipes, this site is completely aware of the fraud they are committing. Items are clearly inferior quality as can be seen by there pictures of products. Most likely partnered with overseas producers, this company is in business solely to rip off name brand companies, including Roor, ADS and others.

When you find reviews that state  "I've gone there numerous times over the course of over 15 years. Basically each time after the first I was " giving them another chance" they are rude.

Though on the surface they may seem like a reputable store, we have had numerous complaints from valued customers that they have bought fake Illadelph tubes at this chain of retail locations.

A recurring theme in Washington State, the GreenRoom has fallen victim to buying counterfeit Illadelph glass and putting it up on their shelves to resell it. Though not always the retailers fault, one would think a shop owner would do their due diligence before purchasing glass from anyone other than ourselves. So buyer beware, if the store carrying Illadelph products is not on our website or the box isnt labeled with a QR Code you are more than likely about to waste money on a fake!

Once an authorized retailer, we found out Medusa was upselling their counterfeit Illadelphs and using their Authorized Retailer certificate to dupe customers into believing what they were buying was authentic. This was pretty obvious after they placed one order in 12 months and posted photos of their stores with shelves full of Illadelph products. Take our word for it you'd be hard pressed to find authentic products in any of their locations! The smart decision is to visit one of our many surrounding authorized retailers and walk awat with something you can be sure is authentic!
