What are the benefits of brass tapware?
Brass tapware offers rust resistance and can be coated with a chrome, white chrome, gold, gun metal grey or black finish. Brass taps in Australia and New Zealand are required to be dezincification resistant brass or DR brass, a copper alloy with a zinc content of more than 37%. This helps against severe corrosion when water is very highly chlorinated or high in oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Is Aquaperla tapware made of solid brass?
Aquaperla’s solid brass tapware products stand the test of time, offering anti-rust, corrosion and tarnish resistance.

WELS and water ratings – what you need to know
In 2005, the Australian Government introduced the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards, or WELS Scheme. This scheme applied a mandatory, nationwide water efficiency and minimum performance standard to all Australian household water-consuming products. Under WELS, any product that consumes water must be examined and tested by a government regulator under standardised conditions within a laboratory to dictate its efficiency. WELS utilises a scale similar to Australian Energy Ratings – a scale from one star to six stars (one being the least efficient, six being the most).
The higher number of stars, the higher the water efficiency. The star rating is a simple way to compare the water efficiency of different products at a quick glance.
What is a WaterMark™ standard tap?
WaterMark™ is a product quality certification mark owned by Standards Australia. It is provided by independent certifying authorities and managed by the Australian Building Codes Board. It is designed to ensure compliance that the product has been assessed for product quality, including health and safety, and warranted that it is fit for purpose. WaterMark™ tapware products have undergone rigorous testing and meet several quality standards and health and safety requirements.
A typical kitchen tap or bathroom mixer is made up of a number of components and many of them also need to have WaterMark™ certification for the product to be certified. The input hoses, any internal hoses and the mixer cartridge all require WaterMark™ certification.
WaterMark™ certification is mandatory in Australia
WaterMark™ certification is mandatory for products to be legally installed in accordance with State and territory plumbing regulations. Products required to be certified are listed in the Plumbing Code of Australia. When purchasing tapware always remember to look for the WaterMark™ logo to ensure the tapware is certified under the WaterMark™ Standard for Australia and New Zealand.
Does Aquaperla tapware have WELS approved star ratings and Watermark certification?
All Aquaperla tapware has a WELS rating and WaterMark™ certification. Many of our products have a WELS rating of 6 – the highest rating – with a water efficiency of 4 litres per minute. Aquaperla tapware products also come with a WELS license number and WaterMark™ logo.
