Re the self cutting washing machine outlets-The early cheap types used a plain steel cutter, the later ones use a better stainless cutter-don't ask me how I know!

Hi everyone, thanks for all your help. You have all been incredible.  Looks like we are sorted. A friend had a bag of bits. If we have any further issue will certainly come back and take Jon up on his offer a rummage.

No luckily he did not! Only had a temp supply.EDRF have put in correct supply and had it all installed by a french electrion. Seems we have a mixture of french and UK plumbing though!

I used one of those self cutting things - didn't work very well at all and a couple of years later the cutting bit rusted away and blocked the water supply. I ended up replacing the pipe and doing a proper job.

I wouldn't touch one again!

Here's hoping the previous owner didn't use UK electrics as well!

When you say push fit or speedi fit do you mean pipe work is plastic?, if it is you won't get any form of adapter here, if the pipework is copper you can get a 14-16 mm self cutting washing machine tap which screws on pipe and cuts its own hole.

Sorry ment to say that you can get a 15mm reducer to whatever french size you are using from a proper plumbers.If you get a compression one there's no soldering.Not a brico or super marche.
