    Default New house move, two appliances one water source

    Hi,
    I have one water supply and i want to run two appliances,
    a dish washer and a washing machine.
    The parts i have been looking at using are.

    Compression appliance tee from screw fix and a twin waste adapter from amazon,
    Would i need anything else ?

    Any advice on getting the ball rolling would be great !,
    i will post before and after pictures also.

    Looking forward to your replies

    Curt

    Why not just get someone in to do it ? some of these so called simple jobs can turn into a nightmare,, the cold side is simple enough, but you may have a problem with the waste .

    you will probably find that a compression appliance tee won't allow the further appliance to reach, same for the waste

    Ideally it needs to be done properly with an extend run of the copper and waste

    If I`m not mistaken you already have a T junction on that pipe, where does that pipe go to?

    The white waste pipe goes out to the drain outside, and the copper pipe comes from the cold supply, and gives to the washer and sink

    The appliances are next to each other, so i would not need to extend anything fortunately, i just need to give the water source two outputs
