]the previous posters were right. Try to put it near an existing water supply to save on work. Your water supply's will connect to hose bibs (laundry faucets) and your hoses will connect from the machine to the hose bib connections.





You wouldn't know anything about drain laying would you. You see I [ we/PP ] have this problem with water every time it rains,,,Oh lets just forget it. It's a stupid question anyway.


Nah, that's a good question. My street was dug up a few weeks back and a large concrete storm water pipe was layed. Trouble is it doesn't fucking work. The street flooded more during the last flash flooding than I've ever seen it before.

There was an inspection point that wasn't covered for a while and I noticed that the pipe remained at least half full of water. To my mind this meant that the pitch of the pipe was wrong or it would need some kind of pumping system to clear the water. Anyway, I'm sure the water is still lying in the pipes breeding more mosquitoes - as though there weren't enough already.

Mooser, could you comment on this?

Let us know how it goes. Things are quite different in Asia in regards to fittings and material as well as installation practices.

Thanks for that, confirms my thinking. All the inspection points are now covered but I'd bet the pipe is still half full of rapidly stagnating water.

You obviously missed the point. She was showing you how fucked up it is cleaning clothes by hand. Buy a washing machine!

Will do. Plan to go to that shop that B Lexus suggested by Central market in stroppy's AC thread. Then to Aeon.

Aeon has an LG Fuzzy logic 10.5kg on sale for $289. Funny, we walked down to the store below (at aeon) and the same washer was $329. Matter of riding the escalator.

SQUFfy, that washer is much cheaper near Central, we bought one. I'll check the receipt, but not far off a couple of hundred IIRC.
