    I'm having a new kitchen fitted and have run into a problem with the plumbing which I hope someone can help with.

    I have a sink and separate drainer (this one http://www.tapwarehouse.com/product/ASTRACAST-OXD1XBHOMESK?gclid=CPzb0NCsjMwCFcSRGwodJyEJQQ). It has a slimline waste and will be fitted over an appliance (it has to, can't be moved elsewhere). Because it is over the appliance it has to somehow drain to the waste from the sink via a flexible pipe like a washing machine waste hose. This would be OK but underneath the sink I already have a washing machine and dishwasher connected to the waste via one of these http://www.jtmplumbing.co.uk/pipe-f...liance-stand-pipe-twin-connector-v33wm-pp7592.

    Is there anyway I can connect a third hose to this set up, maybe via a Y-splitter of some sort? There will never be much water draining from the drainer, a few drops at most, but it does need to connect somewhere.

    Thanks

    Firstly, you need to be careful, you would need to seal that it in if it's over something electrical, for obvious reasons.

    If you Y both appliances together and the drainer is on the other one to avoid it pumping back into the drainer.
