Later date looms for fishing event<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

THE ANNUAL Take a Kid<br />

Fishing event at the Groynes<br />

lakes may be saved.<br />

However, the October event<br />

could be pushed back into late<br />

November or December this<br />

year.<br />

There were fears the event<br />

could be cancelled due to<br />

rapid growth of the lagarosiphon<br />

weed.<br />

City council<br />

manager Kay<br />

recommended<br />

two options<br />

involving<br />

David Denton<br />

chemical<br />

control to the<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community Board, to minimise<br />

the problem.<br />

“The reasons for the rapid<br />

growth are not well understood<br />

but the warm summer and high<br />

nutrient flow into the lakes<br />

could be the cause . . . at this<br />

stage it is proposed that further<br />

on-going chemical control of the<br />

lake weed will be the most effective<br />

method for management,”<br />

said Ms Holder.<br />

The work, costing $15,000,<br />

would go ahead this upcoming<br />

weeks afterwards.<br />

Event organiser David Denton<br />

said the event can work with the<br />

new dates, if a commitment is<br />

made by city council to control<br />

the weed.<br />

The Take A Kid Fishing event<br />

has been held at the Groynes annually<br />

since 1988.<br />

About five to six thousand<br />

people attend it each year.<br />

Previously the Isaac Conservation<br />

and Wildlife Trust has<br />

donated 800 salmon which are<br />

released into the lake.<br />

Volunteers show the children<br />

how to catch a salmon, clean it<br />

and prepare it for cooking.<br />

It is unclear how effective the<br />

chemical control could be.<br />

“There will still be some<br />

uncertainly on the effectiveness<br />

of the control as it depends on<br />

unknown environmental conditions,<br />

if the weed regrows in<br />

Holder.<br />

The large quantity of weed<br />

means that if pulled out, it<br />

will regrow and potentially<br />

spread.<br />

“There are concerns that mechanical<br />

methods may produce<br />

other water bodies and spread<br />

STUDENTS RAISE $5000<br />

St Margaret’s College students<br />

camped overnight at the school<br />

experiencing ‘living under a<br />

This has been a happy family home for many years, but a change in circumstances creates an<br />

opportunity for another family to move in and enjoy this lovely property. The views are hard<br />

to beat, across the city to the mountains and sea beyond. The substantial home is configured<br />

to offer great flexibility for all sorts of households, with a semi self-contained area that could<br />

be fantastic for extended family.<br />

The main areas of the home are upstairs where living, dining and kitchen are open plan, all<br />

with aspects of the view. The living room opens through ranch sliders to a wooden deck that<br />

wraps around the house and also connects to the master bedroom. A large kitchen area with<br />

room for casual dining is a few steps up from the living spaces and connects to a private and<br />

sheltered outdoor area at the rear of the property.<br />

The master bedroom has an ensuite, and there are two other bedrooms upstairs along with<br />

the main bathroom facilities, which are separated into 3 rooms, making it a practical and<br />

convenient home for busy households. Downstairs a spacious entrance and stairway area<br />

opens into a double bedroom with adjoining living and kitchen area, which in turn connects<br />

to a large games room. These are all generous spaces with myriad uses. The whole downstairs<br />

area has it’s own large outdoor area where of course the views take centre stage.<br />

There is a double garage with easy drive on access and off street parking. The timeless design<br />

of the house offers the next owners potential to update without breaking the bank. Whatever<br />

the next owner plans it will be the views that capture the heart and spark the imagination.<br />

Sport centre<br />

one step closer<br />

•From page 1<br />

Mr Inglis said the group started<br />

a conversation three years ago<br />

with local sporting and community<br />

groups.<br />

“There’s been a really positive<br />

response to it. A lot of sports are<br />

competing for court space at the<br />

moment.”<br />

Mr Inglis said the facility would<br />

be similar to the Edgar Centre in<br />

Dunedin.<br />

“You will find around the country,<br />

particularly in Wellington,<br />

Auckland and in Dunedin with<br />

the Edgar Centre, the participation<br />

and growth rates in the sport<br />

are far higher . . . in sports such<br />

as netball, futsal and basketball<br />

when you have indoor facilities.”<br />

Mr Inglis said the facility would<br />

“complement” the proposed<br />

Metro Sports Facility planned for<br />

the central city.<br />

“We see this as complementary<br />

to MSF, as a community-based<br />

sports centre. It’s also decentralised.<br />

We will have 450 car parks in<br />

the Papanui area, which I think it<br />

is a lot easier to manage than 400<br />

car parks in the centre of the city.”<br />

He believes even with the development<br />

nine indoor courts for<br />

MSF, there will still be “a shortfall<br />

in the capacity for indoor courts.”<br />

“Our understanding is that<br />

from netball alone, there is a need<br />

for 18-20 indoor courts.”<br />

AT 10-YEARS-OLD Finnian<br />

Chan-Allan ran 6km in the Star<br />

Media City2Surf.<br />

The Merivale resident started<br />

with a goal of raising $300 for<br />

the Canterbury Bowel and Liver<br />

Trust.<br />

Finnian said: “I thought it was<br />

a lot. I achieved this in a couple<br />

of days, so Mum suggested I try<br />

for $1000, 100 times my age – I<br />

was like, what?”<br />

But when he crossed the line,<br />

Finnian had raised $1568 for<br />

the trust. He said he was “really<br />

happy” with the total.<br />

“By doing this I have learnt<br />

that you can do things for charity,<br />

I feel proud that I raised all<br />

that money and I learnt that people<br />

were happy to help me raise<br />

money for charity. I am confident<br />

now in running 6km and I<br />

am more confident in speaking<br />

to people,” he said.<br />

Finnian has already decided<br />

next year he will do the 14km<br />

run and is hoping to inspire his<br />

whole classroom to join him.<br />

Last year Leanne Corby was<br />

sick when she entered the event,<br />

her husband walked with a<br />

wheelchair “just in case.”<br />

She’d had to put off her wedding<br />

three times because of a<br />

crippling illness. However, she<br />

married her partner of more<br />

than eight years, Craig Corby,<br />

in a wedding almost completely<br />

organised by the Canterbury<br />

Bowel and Liver Trust.<br />

This year Mrs Corby walked<br />

without a wheelchair and with<br />

WATER PUMP: An artist’s impression of the city council’s<br />

preferred design and location for the Jeffreys pump station.<br />

More feedback sought<br />

on Jeffreys pump station<br />

THE SECOND round of<br />

consultation has opened for the<br />

pump station suction tank in<br />

Jeffreys Reserve after residents<br />

were unhappy with previous<br />

designs.<br />

Feedback from the October<br />

2<strong>01</strong>7 consultation resulted in<br />

a further investigation of eight<br />

potential location options,<br />

which were then independently<br />

peer reviewed.<br />

The $2.5 million project<br />

is required to replace the<br />

earthquake-damaged tank<br />

which supplies water to the<br />

north-west of Christchurch.<br />

City council has revealed<br />

it prefers option two, which<br />

includes the new tank next<br />

to the existing re-clad pump<br />

station.<br />

This may result in savings in<br />

energy use and pump upgrades<br />

because the pump station and<br />

suction tank would be in close<br />

proximity. Its visual effects<br />

may also be reduced as the<br />

height of the tank will be 4m<br />

above ground and 50cm below<br />

ground.<br />

The project is now expected to<br />

be completed in December next<br />

year instead of June, city council<br />

manager land drainage Keith<br />

Davison said.<br />

The plans were changed by<br />

the city council after neighbours<br />

of the reserve expressed concern<br />

with the concept designs.<br />

“Key concerns and<br />

suggestions from the have your<br />

say engagement carried out in<br />

September and October were<br />

the height of the tank and the<br />

affect on neighbours, security<br />

issues, visual impacts, use of<br />

existing site, consideration for<br />

other locations and lowering of<br />

tank height,” Mr Davison said.<br />

The consultation will close on<br />

CRIMEWATCH Christchurch<br />

now has $7000 more to carry<br />

out its patrols in the city’s<br />

north-west.<br />

The money has come from the<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community Board’s discretionary<br />

response fund.<br />

North-west Crimewatch volunteers<br />

collectively contribute more<br />

than 7000 hours a year, receive<br />

no government funding and<br />

rely heavily on donations and<br />

sponsorship. Community board<br />

chairman Sam MacDonald said<br />

its work is “incredibly<br />

important.” The<br />

group’s 20 volunteers in the<br />

north-west aim to free up police<br />

resources, increase community<br />

awareness and resilience, and<br />

develop relationships with local<br />

government, schools, Civil<br />

Defence and emergency management<br />

agencies.<br />

The patrol runs seven days a<br />

week and covers more than 15<br />

suburbs from St Albans to Belfast<br />

and McLeans Island to Burnside.<br />

Said community board deputy<br />

chairman Aaron Campbell: “It’s<br />

fantastic we as a community<br />

board can help cover some of the<br />

expenses . . . the group<br />

works closely<br />

with police and<br />

help the city<br />

Get gardening in Bryndwr<br />

In this week’s<br />

soapbox,<br />

Bryndwr<br />

Community<br />

Garden<br />

secretary Kate<br />

Boardman<br />

talks about the<br />

garden’s need for more<br />

volunteers<br />

THE BRYNDWR Community<br />

Garden is based at Morley St Park<br />

and is run by a team of volunteers<br />

from the local community.<br />

Now in its sixth year, the<br />

garden is a great place to learn<br />

about gardening, get fresh<br />

vegetables and herbs, and meet<br />

up with friends and neighbours.<br />

Everyone is welcome to participate<br />

from the novice to the<br />

experienced gardener, from those<br />

who can ‘supervise’ to those who<br />

can dig, weed and water.<br />

Our working bees, held on<br />

Saturday mornings, provide a<br />

time to get your hands dirty as<br />

well as an opportunity to mingle,<br />

chat, share food, and build connections<br />

together to learn and be<br />

part of a community.<br />

Our raised beds near the<br />

playground contain a range of<br />

seasonal vegetables that are available<br />

for anyone to harvest. This<br />

year our tomatoes, bok choy and<br />

pak choi grew especially well.<br />

The community garden provides<br />

an opportunity for children<br />

and families to learn how to grow<br />

vegetables under the watchful eye<br />

of experienced gardeners. This<br />

can lead you to be bitten by the<br />

“gardening bug” and start your<br />

own garden.<br />

We want the Bryndwr Community<br />

Garden to continue to<br />

be a place which enhances community<br />

well-being and brings<br />

people together, as well as being a<br />

community focal point for events<br />

and activities, a place of learning<br />

HELP<br />

WANTED:<br />

More<br />

volunteers<br />

are needed at<br />

the Bryndwr<br />

Community<br />

Garden.<br />

and sharing skills and a garden<br />

that reflects sustainable and environmental<br />

values.<br />

While this sounds like a tall<br />

order, with our team of dedicated<br />

volunteers and links with the<br />

wider community, we do our<br />

best to achieve this – but we need<br />

your help. We are always looking<br />

for more people to be involved<br />

either through participating at<br />

the working bees, being on the<br />

watering roster, building raised<br />

beds, or being on our committee<br />

to guide and enable the running<br />

of the garden.<br />

•If you, your family or<br />

your friends are interested<br />

in being involved with the<br />

garden, come along on<br />

Saturday morning, 10amnoon,<br />

or email bryndwr.<br />

community.garden@gmail.<br />

THREE MAJOR Edgeware<br />

roads could have additional<br />

lanes added in a bid to manage<br />

increased traffic from the<br />

Northern Corridor.<br />

The city council has<br />

proposed an upgrade plan for<br />

Cranford St and the surrounding<br />

area to reduce traffic on<br />

smaller side streets coming off<br />

the motorway.<br />

Plans include adding third<br />

lanes on Forfar, Madras and<br />

Barbadoes Sts between Warrington<br />

St and Bealey Ave and a<br />

clearway on part of Cranford St<br />

from Innes Rd to Berwick St.<br />

“A clearway on part of Cranford<br />

St and three-laning sections<br />

of Madras/Forfar St and Barbadoes<br />

St would help to improve<br />

the traffic flow in the area and<br />

minimise short cuts through local<br />

streets,” a city council report<br />

said.<br />

The additional lanes and clearway<br />

would involve taking away<br />

on-street parking.<br />

“Investigations we have done<br />

show that local streets will be<br />

affected in the morning and<br />

evening peak periods if no road<br />

improvements are made. The<br />

Local<br />

<strong>News</strong><br />

Now<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Upgrade plan to manage<br />

Northern Corridor traffic<br />

impact will vary street by street<br />

but a number of streets will have<br />

a traffic increase of over 30 per<br />

cent,” the report said.<br />

The plan also includes upgrading<br />

the intersections at Cranford<br />

and Westminster Sts, Cranford<br />

and Berwick Sts, Forfar and<br />

Warrington Sts, Warrington and<br />

Barbadoes Sts, Madras St and<br />

Edgeware Rd, and Barbadoes St<br />

and Edgeware Rd.<br />

As well as upgrades to side<br />

streets, including improving<br />

safety by raising intersections,<br />

narrowing sections of the road,<br />

bends and landscaping, as well<br />

as installing mid-block raised<br />

platforms and turning restrictions.<br />

The city council is hosting<br />

drop-in sessions on <strong>May</strong> 7 at St<br />

Albans School from 4pm, <strong>May</strong><br />

10 at English Park from 10am,<br />

<strong>May</strong> 16 at Paparoa Street School<br />

from 4pm and <strong>May</strong> 17 at the<br />

Nearly 800<br />

trees planted<br />

by community<br />

THE FIRST native-tree<br />

planting in Papanui Bush began<br />

on Friday in what Papanui-<br />

Innes Commuity Board<br />

member John Stringer called “a<br />

really historical moment.”<br />

The bush once took up 36-ha<br />

of land that is now Papanui<br />

High School and Vagues Rd in<br />

1850.<br />

During this time, most trees<br />

were felled over a period of five<br />

to six years.<br />

On Friday, about 100 people<br />

planted almost 800 trees,<br />

including totara, in the north<br />

and south end of Bridgestone<br />

Reserve on Langdons Rd.<br />

Mr Stringer said the day was<br />

“really successful.”<br />

Groups involved in the<br />

planting included Papanui<br />

High School, the Rotary Club<br />

of Papanui and members from<br />

the Northcity Church and the<br />

Papanui Baptist Church.<br />

The Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board was also<br />

involved, including city<br />

councillors Pauline Cotter and<br />

Mike Davidson.<br />

Mr Stringer said there<br />

has been even more interest<br />

from local businesses and<br />

community groups for the next<br />

planting, which will take place<br />

in June.<br />

Petition to change schools’ zones<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

“HAVEN’T OUR kids lost<br />

enough to the quake already?”<br />

That’s the message on signs<br />

displayed in Richmond and<br />

Shirley, calling for Avonside<br />

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High<br />

School to include the suburbs in<br />

its new home enrolment zone.<br />

Residents of the suburbs<br />

have delivered 3000 leaflets to<br />

surrounding areas and gathered<br />

more than 1300 signatures on<br />

a petition, calling for people to<br />

submit feedback to the schools<br />

and the Ministry of Education.<br />

The two schools will relocate<br />

to the new shared campus at QE<br />

II Park next year and have been<br />

required to develop a new zone<br />

by the secretary of education.<br />

The board of trustees from<br />

both schools opened a consultation<br />

document online at the<br />

end of March, which closed on<br />

Thursday.<br />

The document included a ‘draft<br />

zone’ which featured suburbs<br />

Burwood, Parklands, New<br />

Brighton, South Brighton and<br />

Southshore, which is supported<br />

by the MoE.<br />

The Marshland area was featured<br />

on the document as a ‘grey<br />

zone’, meaning it was an area the<br />

schools wish to have included in<br />

the zone.<br />

The suburbs of Richmond,<br />

Shirley, Dallington, Avonside and<br />

Edgeware were not included at all.<br />

Richmond resident<br />

Laura McIntosh said she is<br />

disappointed.<br />

“Everyone is feeling pretty sad<br />

about it. We had no idea this was<br />

going to happen. The first we<br />

heard that we weren’t going to be<br />

included was when the two schools<br />

posted on their Facebook page.<br />

She said there is “a general feeling<br />

of abandonment.”<br />

“We have kids from broken<br />

primary schools, broken areas,<br />

and terrible streets, so much unknown<br />

. . . it’s really upsetting.”<br />

Other signs put up also read<br />

“how come areas with no historical<br />

connections to our school are<br />

in, but we are left out in the cold?”<br />

and “don’t abandon our kids.”<br />

Four public meetings were<br />

held with both schools’ board of<br />

trustees and principals.<br />

“There were no MoE representatives<br />

at the meetings at all,<br />

it was really disappointing. They<br />

didn’t get to gauge the feeling of<br />

the room, how upset we were,”<br />

said Mrs McIntosh.<br />

Ministry of Education deputy<br />

secretary sector enablement and<br />

support Katrina Casey said it was<br />

“not appropriate” to have a representative<br />

at the meetings.<br />

“Because school boards lead<br />

the consultation process with<br />

their communities.”<br />

Herbs & natural ingredients<br />

give powerful support<br />

for your immune system<br />

Researchers have shown that certain herbs<br />

& natural ingredients can dramatically<br />

reduce your chances of succumbing to colds<br />

& flu.<br />

Formulas like GO VIR-DEFENCE has<br />

been based on the latest research and has<br />

proved itself to many.<br />

Because of the high potency extracts<br />

used in this formula most will find only<br />

one or two capsule daily sufficient to keep<br />

the immune system at optimum, however<br />

at the first sign of any immune attack, e.g.<br />

headaches, sore throat, aches etc. the dose<br />

can be increased. Most will then find the<br />

symptoms will disappear quickly without<br />

getting worse.<br />

GO VIR-DEFENCE contains the<br />

following powerful ingredients:<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Olive Leaf Extract has become one of<br />

the most popular ingredients used in the<br />

treatment of immune attacks as it has strong<br />

anti-microbial properties that help slow the<br />

growth of bacteria & prevent the replication<br />

of viruses.<br />

The formula also contains garlic,<br />

andrographis, Echinacea, pau d’arco,<br />

elderberry as well as zinc, vitamin C &<br />

citrus bioflavonoids all to provide effective<br />

immune support.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Get rid of<br />

dampness<br />

in your house<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm and<br />

healthy for their families throughout winter.<br />

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of<br />

our older properties which suffer from poor, or<br />

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,<br />

many people have relocated to homes<br />

that suffer from rising damp which can be<br />

associated with health problems. Independent<br />

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can<br />

rise from the ground and enter a house every<br />

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation<br />

and musty smells. Moulds can produce various<br />

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very<br />

young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems caused by rising<br />

damp and are there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,<br />

flowable foam concrete under your timber<br />

floored home. Specially adapted for our<br />

New Zealand conditions and applications<br />

it provides a layer of protection against<br />

rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that<br />

the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete<br />

have noticed recently, is that many owners<br />

of properties which had underfloor foam<br />

concrete installed, reported that it also<br />

provided protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd<br />

now for your free, no obligation quote and<br />

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor<br />

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or<br />

0508 362626 for more information.<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or<br />

a retrofit, most homes include<br />

at least one heat pump, if not a<br />

whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are<br />

much more convenient than a log<br />

burner as you just need to press<br />

a button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right<br />

sized heat pump is key to ensuring<br />

optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional<br />

advice from heat pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it is<br />

important to select<br />

the correct size for<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the<br />

right advice.<br />

your requirements<br />

that will handle<br />

the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily<br />

overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the<br />

location of your<br />

heat pump is also extremely important. The<br />

cheapest installation is a back to back where<br />

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind<br />

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily<br />

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary<br />

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems<br />

and price, so it depends on your application as<br />

to which will be most suitable. Major brands<br />

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,<br />

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands<br />

backed up by good technical after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time<br />

clocks, ease of use of<br />

the remote controllers,<br />

air filtration and also<br />

wifi capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your<br />

home and it is vital to<br />

get the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Fresh air<br />

in your home<br />

All houses require air exchange in order<br />

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live<br />

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air<br />

quality is important for the health of the<br />

occupants. Houses can have many sources of<br />

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,<br />

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening<br />

the windows can refresh the air, but is not<br />

always an option for security reasons and can<br />

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.<br />

Although older houses have small gaps<br />

around windows and doors, you want to be<br />

able to control the flow of air. You don’t want<br />

air coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and<br />

pushing the soiled air around the house. It<br />

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and<br />

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in<br />

from the rest of the house to replace the air that<br />

has been removed.<br />

Modern houses are very airtight and<br />

theoretically require a source of incoming air<br />

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to<br />

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be<br />

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not<br />

to cause draughts.<br />

There are two main types of ventilation<br />

system: Positive pressure and Balanced<br />

pressure. Positive pressure systems, such as the<br />

Dry-Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into<br />

the house, which then percolates through the<br />

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.<br />

Balanced pressure systems bring in a<br />

similar amount of air to the amount they<br />

exhaust. Balanced pressure systems with Heat<br />

Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the heat<br />

of the outgoing air to warm the incoming<br />

air from outside. These are the most energy<br />

efficient systems available, as they recover up<br />

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than<br />

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just<br />

as well cooling incoming air when the house is<br />

cooled in summer.<br />

The NZ building code has recommended<br />

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain<br />

the required airflow for your home, please<br />

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to<br />

recommend a solution if your ventilation<br />

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.<br />
