Care & Use Agreement

Thank you for your purchase!
We appreciate your business and hope that you enjoy your new Strand Boards® Strand Series or Swell Series outdoor shower! Below please find important care and use information for your new surfboard shower so that you can fully enjoy your purchase, as well as information about Strand Boards’ limited warranty.
Proper care of the product, including its shower components, is required to enjoy your new outdoor shower fully. While we strive to provide a high-quality product that you will enjoy for years to come, it is still susceptible to normal wear and tear caused by the natural elements, the quality of water in your area, and the use of the shower. Please observe the following to get the most out of your shower:
  • It is crucial to winterize the shower in cold weather. Just like any outside water faucets and hose bibs, they are susceptible to freeze damage if not properly maintained. A cut-off valve should be installed in the water line in freezing climates so that the unit can be drained and blown out with compressed air. 
  • Bring the shower inside during extreme weather/seasons; not doing so in a timely manner may result in damage or freeze. When you do so, please remove the entire shower unit and store it indoors. 
  • Please use caution to prevent burns to skin from scalding water, especially in warmer climates. Water is stored in the body of most shower units and water lines when not in use, and although the finish of the shower unit has minimal solar gain, that water can reach more than 110 degrees which can result in burns to skin tissue.
  • Please be aware that pinhole leaks may develop over time in any copper plumbing, rusting and/or pitting on chrome components. 
  • The shower must be properly installed and maintained and should not be modified without authorization by Strand Boards, or else you risk damaging the components.
Strand Boards’ warranty will cover all exterior plumbing components that are part of the surfboard shower for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase. Strand Boards will replace or repair at its own discretion any manufactured or supplied plumbing component found to be defective in its manufacture and if conditions are met at no cost to you. Strand Boards will bear the cost of any shipping fees associated with the return or replacement of merchandise covered by this warranty. The warranty does not cover the surfboard itself, as we cannot be responsible for damage caused to the surfboard by a user.
Other than the warranty provided herein, Strand Boards makes no other warranties, express or implied. Wear and tear is normal and expected on the surfboard and components, and except for items covered by the above warranty, it is solely up to the purchaser to repair and replace parts of the shower and its plumbing. We are not responsible for the shower as a result of natural exposure to environmental effects or shower users, including any damage or natural wear/tear If any damage is incurred by any users. The warranty further does not include damage from freight carriers, faulty installation, failure to comply with any cleaning and maintenance instructions included with the shower, and freeze damage or other climate-related issues, and will become void if you do not adhere to the care and use guidelines above, or if the surfboard or its components is damaged from misuse by users. 
Please be aware that the original colors on the surfboard may fade or change over time, depending on several factors, including, but not limited to, exposure to the natural outdoor elements, where the surfboard shower is installed, and how it is maintained. For example, certain lighter colors may darken over time. Strand Boards is not responsible for these natural color changes, and such changes are not covered by any warranty.  
Strand Boards’ sole liability, and purchaser’s sole remedy, for breach of the foregoing warranty is repair or replacement of the allegedly defective plumbing component at no cost to the purchaser. In no event shall Strand Boards be liable for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, or consequential damages arising out of or related to the use of misuse of this product.
