      Great IDEA I think Oz is the perfect place to try
      ANYTHING that is not subject to the stringent codes and testing that is common place in other countries.

      The Blokes in Oz actually were foolish enough to trust their government when it came to registration of certain sportsmen toys and their government saw fit to “buy back” something they never owned.

      YES Australia is the perfect proving ground for new products and new laws to be tried out.

      These folks dont mind giving up their rights it would appear so it is a perfect place to export products and idea’s to.

      Contrary to @$#^^%#wits comments (He is a gun user and believes its the right of all people to have the ability to kill someone at a moments notice).

      Unlike the USA, In Australia there are VERY strict laws pertaining to products that can be fitted to the water and drainage systems of the nation. Unlike the USA, in Australia all our WC’s work. No need to explain to the customer how to use a plunger because the toilet approved by their standards organisations doesn’t work as designed.

      Get a sample of the product to have tested by the correct authorities here before bulk buying them. Try to lock up a contract that you only have to follow through with IF they get approval.

More folks are killed by drivers and Abortions and OVER dose on drugs or Bad doctors then all the guns EVERY owned by LEGAL gun owners Except possibly the police and Military

      How many Abortions are performed to GUN killings guy?

      The Sloan Royal 1.6 with a Crane elongated WC like in my house out performs ANY gravity or pressure assisted toilets INCLUDING the 3.5 models. Of course being a WANKER like yourself mate you could careless about water conservation

      Or being from a Penal colony nation do you have ONE CODE fits all?

      I think England needs to rethink its prison positions rather then make an island of folks who have no clue to various CODES Thankfully MOST of the top notch Plumbers/Gas Fitters and Drainers came to OZ from OTHER places and that is why blokes like Bungie finally have indoor plumbing.

      Try to lock up a contract that you only have to follow through with IF they get approval.

      By the way mate if you trhink about it IF the poor Natives in your country had guns you blokes could never have taken away their children in the 1940’s

      Guns in LEGAL hands means FREEDOM History has atlkeast taught us that much Have a fantastic holiday Mate.

      We have a senator who killed more women with his car then ALL my guns combined.

      Ask Tanya about “gun control” in South Africa.

      NO MORE gun talk on here mate as you lost your rights so forgetabout it.

      Let BIG BROTHER continue tell you what is ok for you to own, Your a great Follower mate.

      Never can you trust ANY government that does not trust its citizens.

      A government afraid of its citizens is a democracy.

      A citizen afraid of his government is Tyranny LONG live the CZAR

      Figured Id get Bungie to jump right in he has been way to quiet lately LOL

      Hi Gerry and Michael the GasMan Finally let the Bungie out of hiscage I see

      any product needs to have passed astralian standards to be used on plumbing systems and needs to have the water mark. check with you own states authority of water supply/plumbing if they cant help should be able to put you in touch with some one who can help.
      A product has to be properly tested and passed as the results of the device failing could bedamaging and without approval could end up getting you sued.
      It might be a lenghty process but if the products as good as you think it might be worth it.
      ps are the fittings desighned in china or just made there)

      I went through PRODUCT AND MATERIALS INFORMATION by WSAA. It just mentions materials like DI, GRP,PE,PVC,Steel and Copper. I’m not sure if it’s all right when my products made of PC(polycarbonate).

      They’re designed and made in China. How long does it take for the testing process?

      dont know about the length of approval, have to go through all the usual bullshit so could be a while .
      maybe try getting in touch with standards australia and see what they can do for you.
      best of luck
