    Hook up hot & cold lines and drain to garage utility sink next to clothes washer
    I desire to hook up a utility sink nedst to the existing clothes washer in an enclosed garage area. The washer has existing hot and cold supply lines coming from the wall with a brass bibb. Can I, and if so, how, can I connect hot and cold lines to the utility sink. It has a standard type swinging arm with hot and cold valves for connecting normally to flex lines to an angle cock valve on a wall. What is the recent plumbing Code (IPCH)requirements for this connection?

    Well, If I understand your question properly, you want to tap into the faucet for hot and cold to the clothes washer. Right?
    If so, then you will need to remove the yoked hot-cold faucet and put in a separate hose hookup to the washing machine. You can easily do this by putting in a Tee on each pipe and then reconnect the hot-cold faucet. This is a simple answer coming from a simple mind, but this should help. Nm :)
