i'm not talking about the forum member here, i'm actually talking about real life problems.
washing machine delivered last week (thursday) it was "fitted" by the delivery men.
they actually managed to fit the hot water pipe (ITS RED) to the washing machine (ITS COLD WATER INLET ONLY).
so, anyway, i spot this error after i take a look since our washing has come out steaming hot after the first few washes.
i go to swap the pipes over and fit correctly (AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS WHICH THE DELIVERY MEN THOUGHT THEY KNEW BETTER SO DIDNT BOTHER READING THEM) and find when i go to shut off the hot water pipe, it has a very slow leak.
i can't see into it without the use of an inspection mirror, but its definitely leaking on the inside of the tap end.
anyways, if this is leaking here, i guess i need a new stop end(?) or will a stop end cap do the job nicely?
i have the same problem as this chap i think http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/forum ... t4473.html
but dont fully understand what the responses are saying....i'm no plumber, but explain to me in a way i'll understand and i'll be able to do it. i DO NOT want to call a plumber out. i have absolutely no faith whatsoever in anyone else being able to do this job properly - but in plumbers defense, i'm unsure why they are letting delivery men fit washing machines....? WTF
