    Sorry not a plumber i was replying to Bugbabes question. I would have a guess if they are different there will be some sort of adaptor or a case of cutting the adaptor of the old one and fitting a compresion adaptor for the new ones.

    Hello Bev, Your water pipes will fit fine over here although you'll have to turn your washing machine upside down for it to work... Just my little joke;) seriously, pipes will fit ok.

    As for fridge/freezers as mentioned earlier they will work fine with a plug change but during the summer months they will have to work much harder than they ever did in the UK so wont be very economical to run.

    My advice would be to leave it in the UK and by one of the big American style (or should I say Australian Style) fridge freezer combos they have here.

    You will need a much bigger one than the typical type you see in the UK as most everything is kept then there during the summer months.

    Or you could bring your UK one to tide you over and then when you buy an Aussie one, use your UK one for beer! :cute:

     

    Seriously its one less thing to buy when you get over here as you seem to bleed money when you first arrive!
