Hi I have just taken delivery of a neff S51E50x1GB dishwasher.

Resolved Question:

Hi

I have just taken delivery of a neff S51E50x1GB dishwasher. My Dad is a plumber and is coming round tomorrow to fit it. He has asked me to make a list of what fittings/ pipes he needs to bring.

The end of the water inlet pipe has a female 1 inch compression connection.

Can you help?

Thank you

Hiya,
It needs a standard water connection valve.

Copy and paste the following into a new browser window.

This valve fits onto the end of the copper pipe.
If you are breaking into a pipe you need one that is a T.

For the drain, do you already have a spigot onto house drains?
Normally under the sink and blanked off.

Thanks

Hi


 


Thanks for prompt response.


 


Just one follow up question:


1. is it a 1inch Mi Straight washing machine tap isolation valve that I need? I ask this as the link you gave was to a 3/4 inch valve - whereas the end of the compression joint on the dishwasher intake pipe is 1 inch.


 


In response to your question - a gully trap drain already on other side of wall to where dishwasher is being installed - just need to break through wall with outlet pipe.


 


Thanks again

Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

I've just gone through the service information but can't see anything that refers to the inlet hose having been increased in size.

Is it the thin black hose or do you have the large grey aquastop?

Thanks

Hi


 


I have the large grey aquastop. It's opening measures 1 inch across.


 


Thank you

Hiya,
OK, you need a suitably sized tap connector.
If you have the 1" aquastop, you'll need a 1" tap or an adapter.

Sometimes they include an adapter but not very often.

Thanks

Hi


 


Thank you that is just what I needed to know.


 


Just spoke with my Dad - he is going to have a root round in his store to see if he has one that he can bring along tomorrow.


 


Thanks again for your help.
