Kitchen Sink Waste

Postby wyldey » Thu Apr 12, 2007 3:27 pm

Under the kitchen sink, i would like to connect the Sink & Half Sink waste, Washing machine waste and the Dishwasher waste... I can find kits for Sink & Half Sink, Sink & Washing Machine.... But i can't find one for everything i'm after.
Can you recommend what i could do to get all connected?

Simply Build It

A plumbers merchants will be able to help you with the correct parts for what you want to do although its not a great idea to connect everything to one 40mm pipe if you can possibly avoid it. There will undoubtedly be a time when the dishwasher and washing machine are oin at the same time and discharging this amount of water can lead to problems, especially without an air inlet valve. See our project on gurgling basins.
