Fittings, fixtures and appliances

BASIX assesses fittings, fixtures and appliances based on:

  • WELS water efficiency rating for all showerheads;
  • WELS water efficiency rating for all toilets;
  • WELS water efficiency rating for all kitchen and bathroom taps; and
  • for multi-dwelling unit developments (but not groups of single dwellings or townhouses), the water efficiency of water-using appliances.

Please note that the rating selected MUST match the rating of the fittings and fixtures installed in the development and this needs to be signed off by the certifier.

In the BASIX multi-unit tool the values selected will be applied to all dwellings in the dwelling type. If you wish to apply values to specific dwellings, select them individually using the checkbox to the left of the dwelling numbers.
