Surprisingly, the replacement turned up as promised – I was sceptical as it was a Sunday. A simple ‘y’ connector for the inlet pipe worked a treat – it’s only temporary until we fit a new kitchen.
The trap still works well, and stood up to the washing machine, dishwasher and the sink all emptying at the same time. Note the bucket underneath – just in case!
And here are the new appliances. They stick out a bit due to the stopcock, but this won’t be a problem once everything is in its final position.
Money well spent!
