Thursday, 9 April 2020

The Australian Consumer Competition Commission (ACCC) has issued an alert concerning the supply and installation of bidet products.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has seen an increase in the purchase by those performing 'do it yourself' tasks, of plumbing products such as toilet seat bidet douches, handheld bidet sprays and trigger sprays, and other bidet type products that are connected to toilet water supplies. 

The ACCC, in consultation with the ABCB, has published an alert, COVID-19: Supplying and installing bidet products on the Product Safety Australia website.

The key message of the alert is that the installation of bidet product connected to the drinking water supply must be undertaken by a licensed plumber and hold WaterMark certification.
