Caps on pipes for washer


Hello. We just moved into an older house and got our washer and dryer delivered, however are not sure how to remove the caps off the pipes. They are round with no apparent way of removing them with a wrench or pliers.. any suggestions?

Not sure but have you tried some channel locks or similar to see if they unscrew?

Those are called "Sharkbite" stops. You can go to your local DIY store and get the tools you need to remove them. http://www.sharkbiteplumbing.com/tools

Yes little red plastic C clips that slip over the pipe you push up hard and off they slide. Make sure the water is shut off first.
