I am currently in the process of installing an integrated dishwasher in the kitchen, my concern is to do with with drain hose connection, because the washing machine is currently using it, and is only adapted for one hose. As the waste run horzontally on the floor via waste pipe behind the dishwasher I wanted to know if create another waste drainage on it or was they a way to split the existing into two.

Any ideas on how to best do this, as I not keen on attaching the waste pipe from washing machine to the sink as it really accesible?

You could tee into the upstand with a tee, mxf elbow and piece of pipe to make a double upstand.
I did, and it worked perfectly until she who thinks she should be obeyed decided she no longer wanted a dishwasher. :rolleyes:

Pictures ought to be uploaded to posts for the convenience of those trying to help, not just left in albums.
Still trying to work out how that would look, any idea of picture or parts to buy ?


Thanks for providing this diagram, will hope to apply this. Great for your support.
