Cap for washing machine nozzle

Post by jimmy86 » Mon Feb 18, 2019 11:21 am

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can get something to cap of the washing machine nozzle on the kitchen waste? The washing machine is going to be disconnected for a while so we can renovate the kitchen, don't was any leaks or unpleasant smells.

Cheers,
Jimmy

You can get a solid washer to seal the fitting where it screws in

I used a balloon once. I shoved it in blew it up and knotted it (awkward head banging manoeuvre) and it worked a treat. Necessity being the mother of invention at that time. The blanking off washer is best though :thumbright:

A bit of thick plastic sheet (carrier bag) on the end and jubilee clip or zip tie to hold it in place
