Quick question for you plumbing types....
I'm about to replace my 20 year old washing machine. It's hot and cold
feed, whereas the new one will almost certainly be cold feed only. This
means I'll have nothing to connect to the hot feed. It's a standard w/m
feed pipe, with an inline shutoff valve (small plastic lever) and a 3/4"
threaded end. I know in theory I ought to be able to just leave the
valve shut off, but:
a) I prefer a method which does NOT allow it to be accidentally knocked
b) In case the valve doesn't completely shut off (it hasnt been moved
for 15 years to my knowledge) I want to stop up the pipe end.
All I'm looking for is a 3/4" threaded end cap, plastic or metal, to
screw on to the end. Is there such a thing? My local Plumb Centre gave
me a vacant look!
