By submitting an application to participate in the showerhead exchange trial, you are deemed to have read, understood and accepted the following terms and conditions:
To be eligible to participate in the trial you must meet the following criteria:
- You own and reside in a property (“Property”) within the Tauranga City Council (“TCC”) area;
- You are not an employee or agent of TCC or any of its related corporations or of any agencies associated with the trial, and you are not a spouse, de facto partner, parent, child or close family member of an employee or agent;
- Your Property is on mains water pressure;
- There are no outstanding arrears for water rates on the Property;
- Your existing water flow rate for your existing showerhead is between 12 litres/min and 20 litres/min;
- Your existing shower must be compatible with the showerhead to be provided by TCC.
If you meet the above criteria, TCC does not guarantee your application will be accepted. Applications are subject to availability and will be approved on a first-in, first-served basis at TCC’s sole discretion. There are 150 showerheads available. Applications will no longer be accepted once all showerheads have been allocated to eligible participants.
Eligible participants will receive a maximum of one showerhead per household.
If your application is successful, you will receive a showerhead and installation pack in return for your existing showerhead.
You agree to install the new showerhead correctly. One 9 litre/min aerator fitting is included. This is designed to reduce the water use of the showerhead.
TCC will keep your old showerhead for 30 days from the day you swap your showerhead. You can return the new showerhead in its packaging for your old showerhead at any time within the 30-day period. After the 30 days, TCC will dispose of your old showerhead.
By taking part in this trial, you agree to participate in a short survey which will be emailed to you approximately two weeks after you collect your new water-efficient showerhead. We are keen to receive feedback on the application process, your new showerhead and what your new water flow rate is.
To the extent permitted by law, TCC will not be liable for any claims for loss, damage or injury whatsoever or for any physical or mental injury suffered by any applicant as a result of or in connection with this trial.
TCC reserves the right to amend or change these terms and conditions at any time at its sole discretion, including extending, postponing or cancelling the trial.
These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of New Zealand and shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of New Zealand courts.
