hmm, well ConsumerDirect (a gov funded info service) disagrees with what you say. I must admit I can't make heads nor tales of your link, it's complex and I don't have time to go through it and actually understand it right now, I will later though just out of my own curiosity.
If goods are faulty and you wish to claim a full refund you must return the goods to the seller within a reasonable period of time, this time period is not set out by the law as it will vary depending on what has been purchased and the circumstances of the sale. For instance you may buy a pair of shoes and wear them the next day, and realise they are faulty and return them within a week for a refund.
Edit - Perhaps you're not taking into account the amendments to the act? Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended by The Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 and The Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002), etc?
