    Hi,

    Apologies for posting such a stupid question, but I am a total DIY ignoramus! We had a dishwasher "fitted" recently by a company that sells appliances online and the guys plumbed it in to the water supply OK and fitted the waste output pipe into the existing waste pipe under the sink - BUT, there are two openings in that pipe (see attached picture).

    They said that it would be fine to tape over the other opening to stop leaks - but obviously it isn't! I have been looking for a plastic screw on cap or something to replace the tape. However, I have no idea what to look for!

    My tape measure tells me it is 32mm (including the threads).

    Does anybody have any idea what the part / fitting that I need is called? Or could link me to somewhere that supplies one?

    I feel totally ridiculous asking as I'm sure it should be be a 30 second job to fix this - but I have no idea what to look for!

    Thank you!

    Alex

    Normally a blanking plate and screw fixing would come with that type of waste, maybe the fitters lost it, and bodged it up using Duct Tape. ( What else have they bodged up ??)

    Thank you @Dan Robinson, @Iamchamps, and @Bosswhite

    The "Appliance Trap Blanking Cap" was what I was looking for! I bought the McAlpine blanking plug from screwfix, but I can't see how it's 32mm as it's 40mm at its narrowest point (it's definitely the right one - at least it says s23u on the packet!).

    @Bosswhite I'm going to have to admit that it's me that bodged it with duct tape - solely so we could use the sink! The previous dishwasher was kind of plugged into the waste that is now bodged with duct tape! It seemed to work though :)

    Thanks again!

    Alex
