What is WEL’S?
WELS is Australia’s Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme. Lables show a star rating and also a water consumption or water flow figure. The less water used, the higher the star rating. Tapware, showerheads and toilets all have different maximum ratings.
Tapware can be a maximum of 6 stars.
Toilets can be a maximum of 5 stars.
Showerheads can be a maximum of 3 stars.

Every home that is constructed within NSW is required by law to have a complying BASIX Certificate. BASIX is a web based tool mandated by the state government to ensure that housing within NSW is built in a sustainable fashion.
While some project builders try to keep these measures to a bare minimum, here at STR we comply fully and with common sense solutions. You can be assured that we will comply fully with any requirements needed.
