I am trying to plumb for my new dishwasher. Under my sink I have a
1/2 pipe going to a 1/2 to 3/8 inch compression converter, then the
flexible tube to the sink. Currently, there is no shut off valve. I
want the shut off valve and the dishwasher.
I bought a 1/2 to 3/8 shut off valve with two outlets. How it works
is the handle would be on the top of the pipe, and the outlets would
be on the side. Not the way I imagined it, but so be it.
The problem is the current 1/2 to 3/8 connector. Since it is
supplying the threads, if I remove it, the valve doesn't work-cause
there is no thread on the pipe. (its a female valve). Is threading
the pipe the answer? Or does it require something else? Or am I
buying the wrong valve?
Any answers would be appreciated.
