Can you split a cold water feed?
As long as you can turn off the water, then all you need to do, is undo the chrome nut holding the existing valve on, pull off the valve, throw away the nut on the new valve, and just fit the double valve onto the existing nut on the pipe. It’ll be far stronger than using a brass splitter.
Can you connect washing machine to cold water only?
If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water (and therefore has a hot & cold fill valve) but you only have a cold water supply available, you can use a Y Piece connector to connect it up to a single cold water tap.
Which water line is hot?
Plumbing for a kitchen sink includes a drain line, a pair of water lines, and a couple of valves. The hot water is on the left side while the cold water is on the right.
Do I connect washing machine to hot or cold water?
A washing machine is normally connected to the cold and hot water systems, but quite a few will work with just a cold supply while dishwashers usually only need a cold supply.
Should I turn off water to washing machine every time?
If the simple fill valve malfunctions on a washing machine, water will continue to enter. So if you put in a load and go to dinner, it will continue to fill. The best defense is turning off water to the house when you leave for more than a day.
How do I drain the water from my washing machine?

Why do I have 2 water meters?
Sewer is the volume of water that goes down the drain and needs to be treated. A second meter will tell the city how much water is being used inside vs. outside. Those with a 2nd water meter will see a more itemized usage on their water bills.
How much does a new water supply pipe cost?
Cost to Replace Main Water Line Replacing a water line costs anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 or more. You’ll spend anywhere from $50 to $250 per linear foot to replace the pipe.
How do I get connected to mains water?
If the property requiring a new water connection is close to an existing water main used by existing customers (usually in a nearby street) you can ask your local monopoly water company, a water retail company, an SLP or a new appointee (known as providers) to make the new connection.
Are all washing machines cold fill only?
All modern washing machines are cold fill. It takes less energy for the washing machine to heat the water, helping to cut down on the energy used. Starting with cold water gives better wash results when you’re using biological detergents, as the enzymes work best at low temperatures.
Why does my washer only have cold water?
Check the water valve screen for a clog. One half of the water valve can fail and only hot or cold will come into the washer. Select cold or hot temperature and if one or the other does not work the valve screen may be clogged. For information on cleaning the water valve screen, see Washer Slow Fill With Water.
Do washing machines heat the water themselves?
This is a very common myth. But in fact, you really don’t need to be heating your water all the time. Modern washing machines, dishwashers and electric showers take cold water and heat it themselves so you don’t need a supply of hot water waiting for them in the tank.
