Are you running a cool event and want to make it even cooler? You need the Hydrohub!
The Hydrohub, affectionately named Alice, is a portable water dispensing unit that can be used to supply water at events or for civil defence purposes. The unit has a 500-litre tank and is mounted on a trailer, which allows it to be towed to and from event locations. The water is easily refilled via a garden hose connection and is double filtered to ensure purity.
Every tank full of water that is used will typically save over 650 plastic bottles (750 ml) from going into the waste stream – sometimes into recycling, commonly into rubbish bins, and often just left as litter.
The Hydrohub also a photovoltaic solar power system, which is used to power the pump and also to supply electricity to the sound system, radio and charging unit for electronic devices.
Not for profit and commercial rates to hire. Just fill out the form to find out more and confirm a booking for your event.
Any corporate or community group can hire the Hydrohub. Check out our Facebook [link] to see were Alice gets to. The Hydrohub has been at events such as Crankworx in Rototura, Waka Ama at Lake Karapiro, The Festival of Multisport at the Mount, many of the Wine and Food Festivals in the Bay, and lots of school and community events.
The Hydrohub is filled from town supply water and then runs through carbon filters before reaching your water bottle.
We ask that you promote the Hydrohub at your event. Please email, tag on Facebook and Instagram that the awesomely enviro-friendly and hydrating Hydrohub will be at the event to provide free water. You can even co-host the event with Hydrohub and we’ll gladly accept your request.
A big part of the kaupapa is that you recommend and encourage people to bring their own drink bottles to refill at the Hydrohub. If you supply your own cups, we encourage the use of compostable cups if you are separating food waste or type 1 plastic as it is recyclable.
We ask that event organisers ensure the Hydrohub is manned throughout the event by someone age 18 or over who has been briefed on his or her responsibilities to ensure the Hydrohub is not misused.
The lovely Mark from EnviroHub transports and sets up the Hydrohub at your event, it will be full on arrival. We provide 2 x 50m hoses should you need to refill the hub and ask that it is within hose reach of town supply water. At the conclusion, Mark will collect it, check it over and clean it. Mark is contactable throughout the time of hire in case any troubleshooting is required.
The Hydrohub heads off in all directions from its base at the Historic Village in Tauranga, we hire it with no transport charge for events in the Tauranga city boundary. However, out of this zone we charge $1.50/km on top of the standard community and corporate hireage rates.
Unfortunately not, due to insurance and liability restrictions. Sorry!
