Buy a flexible braided hose for mains pressure. They come in different lengths.

Fit one end to the water outlet tap and for the other end you will need a fitting you can attach the dishwasher hose to that any plumbing supply has. I don't think you can buy a flexible braided hose that will fit to your water supply tap on one end and then straight to the end of the dishwasher hose on the other. You will need the adapter between the 2 to hook the fittings up. Use plumbers tape on the fittings when installing them for a good water seal.

Or you can just get a plumber in who will fit everything up for you and will also probably use a flexible hose to plumb in the water supply.

How to disconnect sprayer hose on kitchen faucet?


Turn off the water supply valves beneath the kitchen sink. Turn on the faucet and squeeze the trigger on the sprayer to empty any water left in the supply lines, faucet and sprayer.
Trace the sprayer hose from the end of the sprayer to where it connects to the faucet. Use pliers to loosen the connector holding the sprayer hose to the faucet.
Remove the sprayer hose from the faucet to expose the male threads. Wipe the threads dry with a towel. Wrap the threads with pipe-joint tape. Twist a 3/8-inch threaded brass flair cap onto the male threads. Use the pliers to tighten the cap.
Reach beneath the sink and loosen the mounting nut securing the sprayer support to the sink or countertop. Use a basin wrench if you are unable to reach the mounting nut with your hand.
Slide the mounting nut off the hose attached to the sprayer beneath the sink. Pull the sprayer support and the sprayer from the hole in the sink or countertop.
Insert a sink hole cover into the hole left by the sprayer. Depending on the style of hole cover, it could snap in, or a mounting nut could hold it in place.

Things You Will Need
  • Pliers
  • Towel
  • Pipe-joint tape
  • 3/8-inch threaded brass flair cap
  • Basin wrench
  • Sink hole cover

How to remove and replace dishwasher?


Turn off the circuit breaker for the dishwasher power and shutoff the hot water supply (usually located under the sink). Next take off the lower bottom front cover to access the electrical connection and water supply line. Remove the cover to the electrical connection and disconnect the wiring. Pull the supply wire out of the connection box. Next loosen the connection for the water supply line. Have a towel handy to soak up the residual in the water line. Disconnect the drain hose from under the sink. It is either connected to the garbage or to a tee above the sink drain trap. Loosen the clamp and remove the drain hose. Again you'll need that towel to soak up the water from the drain hose.
Most dish washer are attached to the bottom of the counter top above the top of the d/w door with screws. Remove these screws. You may also need to loosen the leveling feet located on the bottom of the d/w at the front in order to pull it out.
Now you can remove the D/W from under the counter top.
Be sure to keep the drain hose on top of the D/W while pulling it out to keep the residual water from draining onto the floor.
Be sure to secure the electric supply wire with wire connectors after the D/W is removed for safety. Also cover the drain connection at the sink or disposal with duct tape to prevent sink water draining into the bottom of the sink cabinet.

Oliveri mixer taps


turn off the hot and cold water supply, place a container under the sink where the hose meets the Sink mixer.
release the pressure from the tap by opening the tap to let the water out.
use a suitable tool to undo the flexible hose from the underside of the tap, there should be a small "O" ring on it which you will have to replace as the "O" ring is possibly the cause of the leak.

My new build, asus MB and Diablotek PS, the leads are too short to reach cpu.atx,can I lengthen them,?


This is risky. You have new MOBO and want to cheat on the PSU? I would not splice anything. IF you cannot get a jumper set that fits the two connections, get another PSU or change case arrangement, style or psu.

The water hose got cut in half.


I had the same issue when a friend tried to use mine - if you remove the top plate, you can then lengthen the hose as there is an extra bit of tubing. It should be enough to reach the bottom of the water container again. You can then attach the filter from the severed half.

Low hot water pressure on Grohe LadyLux.


1. If by replacing the flexible hose you mean the hose for the pull-out portion - you have more than likely kinked or bent the supply line to the hot (left) side of the faucet.
a) If this supply is braided, then simply shutting of the water supply, removing the braided line and either replacing or attempting to straighten it out will be your best bet.
b) If the supply is copper, you will have to cut the line cleanly and carefully. you will then most likely need a 1/4" or 3/8" compression/quickconnect BY 1/2" IP fitting to complete your repair.
2. Other possibilities include:
a) Failure inside the faucet body which will most likely be warrantied by Grohe if you push them hard enough.
b) A problem at your hot water tank, most likely the outlet side and *perhaps* you hadn't noticed the problem elsewhere.
c) The hot valve failing to reopen fully despite all appearances; applies if you turned off the water under the sink for your repair.

I have a new hose for my Grohe Euro Plus to replace a leaking old one. I have disconnected it from the water supply but now the ends of the the old hose will not fit through part connected to the sink...


There are 2 sets of nuts and washers underneath the faucet that holds the faucet in place. loosen them and the water lines (after turning the water off) faucet lifts off from the top of the sink. Replacement the the same, just in reverse. BE SURE TO USE TEFLON TAPE OR PLUMBERS PUTTY ON THE WATER LINE THREADS TO PREVENT COSTLY LEAKS.

Washing cycle starts and takes hours even for short cycle.


Try checking for good water supply.
Pull out detergent tray and check for good water supply during filling.
if poor filling-
Try checking the hoses.
Turn taps off, disconnect from machine, place hose end in sink, turn tap on and check for good water flow.
if the hose has a red indicator in the side of the hose (end which is fitted to the tap) - Red indicator is a failed hose.(for models with Water Stop hose type "B")
