Taps Questions & Answers

Why are recycled taps purple? Do they come in any other colours?

Recycled water taps are coloured purple to distinguish them from drinking water taps, as set out in standard AS3500. This is part of a set of plumbing standards which set out the rules that plumbers must follow to ensure that Australia’s water supply remains safe. To comply with standard AS1319, these taps must also be marked with a warning sign: Warning, recycled water, do not drink. Our FIX-A-TAP Recycled Water Tap features an anti-vandal key to prevent unauthorised water use.
