    Hi,

    I have an old sink that I want to install in the garage, it will only get used very occasionally and only needs cold water.

    The waste is all sorted, I already have a tap in the garage and was hoping for some advice on the easiest way to connect it to the sink tap which would allow me to connect it up on a as needed basis.

    Is there any fixings which you would recommend to use? If not I was just going to use the hose to go from the tap to the sink tap, it seems to fit the tails.

    I've attached a couple of photos.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your new taps will want a compression fitting to connect an existing 15mm pipe to one of the tails. Something like a 15mm isolator. So you'd have to remove existing tap, re route pipe down under new sink. You also want to blank off the other tail otherwise when you turn it on its likely to pour out of it.

    If it's a mixer tap then put a compression blank on the hot feed, then get a hose and jubilee clip, trim the cold feed pipe to remove the olive and nut and then slide the hose onto the 15mm feed as far as possible, heating if necessary and then tighten the clip. Normal garden hose quick release fitting for the garage bib tap on the other end, then attach to tap when needed. As it's temp it doesn't need to be pretty.
