Plumber Frankston: Williams Street Washing Machine stops

When we first arrived at this job we noticed how worn and rough the existing washing machine stops were looking, we then commenced to go to the front water meter and turn off the main water supply to the dwelling, we turned on a few hot and cold taps to drain the remaining water out of the dwellings pipes as to minimize water spillage, upon removal of the existing washing machine taps.

We had removed the existing washing machine taps and began to clean up the thread so when our Plumber Somerville put it on, we wouldn’t have any issues with leaking or unnecessary tightness when putting the new taps on as that can damage the new taps. The new ceramic washing machine taps are similar looking to other ceramic taps we use apart from one minor detail, the male thread is a 3/4′ thread where our other ceramic taps are 1/2′ thread.

Once the threads where cleaned we began to place on some nice new chrome cover plates and test the tap to see if they would fit on nice and tight to the wall, we discovered the threads were to long so we used our special thread cutting tool that connects to our drill to cut back and re-round the start of the thread as to form a nice thread to connect onto smoothly.

Once our Mornington Plumbers had completed the tasks we then placed the chrome cover plates on and used plumbers Teflon tape to make sure of a water tight seal. We then put the new taps on, after the taps were on and shut off we went around the house and turned all the taps off that we had previously turned on, we leave a couple of taps slightly on as we turn the water mains back on as to relieve pressure from the oxygen and water in the line.

We then commenced to turn the taps on whilst holding a bucket under them to test the taps to make sure there is no leaks or problems.
