" I had to move our washing machine due to building work, so needed to plumb it in with an existing water softener. This Y piece worked a treat and now both are running from the same supply. "

Wasing machine y piece

" Very, very handy allowed me to supply washing machine and outside tap, better and less hassle than using a self cutting tap connector. Can still isolate as is connected to the washing machine valve. "

" £1.60 cant go wrong. needed it for a quick short term install of a dishwaher next to a washing machine and needed to split the cold water feed. Saved myself £60 in plumbing costs by simply screwing this onto the existing connector. Job done. "

Does the job
1 Jul 2013
By orchard99
, Herefordshire
" A quick and simple way to connect a washing machine with separate hot and cold fills to a single cold supply. A bit clumsy since you still need the two hoses, but once fitted and tucked away then is OK. I marked down reliability since the first part was deformed and wouldn't tighten to give a leak free seal. Replacement part was fine. "

" Easy to fit and does the job. I used this outside and it started to leak at the glued joint after a frost. Have replaced with brass item but it would be perfectly ok in a frost free environment. "

poor design
17 Jan 2014
By dave9048

" It could work if it were shorter as the lengh put strain on all the plastic joints which can easily leak. The washer on the Inlet tends to distort on tightening.
Could be good but just needs a slight redesign

You'll be sorry
13 Oct 2014
By JBFUK
, Kent
" It may seem like a great little time saving product but unless all of your pipes are clamped rigidly in place it will eventually start to leak and you won't discover it until you have a mouldy damp mess behind your washing machine or under your sink.
Take an extra 10 mins to turn off your mains and replace the existing isolator valve with a compression fit 'T' piece (part 24030). "

Not a precision piece
11 Jul 2014
By Brickcarco
, milton Keynes
" Quality control is questionable me thinks. I have bought a number of these over the years from various places, this one when attaching it to a screwfix washing machine hose did not tighten at all, it slipped the thread before becoming tight. I'm sure i'm unlucky rather than anything else but be aware this is a cheap item. "

Avoid and go for the metal one
10 Oct 2013
By EDward757
, Arundel
" Having had two of these fail on me after discovering all the water, I have finally stumbled upon a metal compression fit option here in screwfix. Priced at £4 it is slightly more expensive but is solid and offers far better performance.
My advice is avoid this plastic parts at all costs...it is not if it fails but when...

Prone to Distortion then Leaks
29 Sep 2013
By RickRandom
, Somerset
" I used this when I had to plumb a washing machine and dishwasher (both cold feed only) into one cold feed when we moved house.
It seemed fine at first, but within a few weeks it started leaking, and of course I only spotted the leak once the waster was across the utility room floor.
I tried tightening again, but just the weight and bends of the hoses, combined with the leverage that the length of the Y shape provides, caused it to distort and leak again.
Perhaps if you can get it leak-tight and then secure the hoses so nothing moves, then it might be OK, but I wasn't prepared to risk it, and bought a two-way valve instead, see Screwfix code 24030.
If you could get a brass version, that would be ideal, but I haven't seen one. "
