I currently have a washing machine which is connected with both hot and cold water.
I am about to fit a dishwasher too and this requires only a hot feed. How do i split my hot water feed so that both dish washer and washing machine get a feed?
I was assuming i would fit a tee piece from the current hot water feed to the dishwasher but when i went to the hardware store i could not find a splitter that would do the job..
Can anyone point me in the direction of what i might need?
[quote="jetblack"]Its only got 1 inlet hose and its got a red end on it so i assume thats a hot feed...
Thanks for the info on the tee piece. That should do it.
It is not usual to have a hot feed to a dish washer for two reasons: cold water is required for the condensing cycle of the wash, to help dry the plates etc and hot water may be fed from a tank in the loft, where all sorts of things get into the water.
While the temperature of a wash cycle will kill most of the bugs, it is not good practice to use a hot feed.
