Whilst we can facilitate international orders, there are some products which are not viable or not allowed to be sent overseas. All products we sell are manufactured or imported for the Australian market. Please make yourself aware of the below:
Unless otherwise stated, all prices displayed or quoted are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are inclusive of the 10% Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST). There is no GST payable on goods or freight for export, therefore 10% will be removed from the total price for international orders.
Customs & Duties
Please familiarise yourself with the Customs and importation requirements of your own country. You are responsible for paying any local Customs duties or importation taxes. Some countries require a permit for importing goods over a specified value.
Restrictions apply for transporting dangerous and hazardous goods. Dangerous goods cannot be transported by air.
All electrical items unless specified otherwise, are suited to Australasian mains electricity supply of 220-240V AC, 50Hz and use the standard 3 pin "Type I" (AS/NZS 3112) plug. This plug type is also used by Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Tonga. Most electrical items are incompatible with 110V / 60Hz as used in North America.
PVC Pipe Sizes
Despite using the metric system, Australia and New Zealand use a metric-adapted version of the imperial "Nominal Bore" system of pipe measurement rather than using the true metric system of "Nominal Diameter". For example, "50mm" pipe (DN 50) has neither an inner or outer diameter of 50mm. Rather, "50mm" pipe is equivalent to 2" "Nominal Bore", where the outer diameter stays the same, and the PVC pipe wall thickness varies. Available sizes are PN6, PN9, PN12 and PN18, with PN9 and sometimes PN12 being the most common.
Therefore, Australian & New Zealand PVC pipe fittings are incompatible with metric PVC pipe fittings used in Europe and the rest of the world. PVC fittings from the United States and Canada are compatible with Australian PVC fittings on the external diameter only and the internal diameter varies. Generally, internal slip fittings such as push in returns / eyeballs and not compatible with North American PVC pipe.
