Copper would be a preferred choice, but I had a "darkroom" that used the Y method. I think the one I bought had a valve so I could turn off either or both the Y splits. Might try to find something like that so you don't have potential leakage in the darkroom when not in use.

Well as hopefully the house I am about to buy will close tomorrow, the actual sink construction looms closer. Now a couple of thing I had not thought about come to mind.I am going to be tying into the line for the washer so an easy way to do it might be to just put a Y fitting on the end of whats there and run other washing machine hose over to where I need the end to be. Or for that matter even regular garden hoses. It will certainly be easier, but wouldn't be as durable. Still if it gets me out of making holes in dry wall, drilling holes for pipe then fixing the dry wall again, I can live with it.The other thing that came to mind is there likely anything in those hoses, or anything the water might pick up that could cause a problem that wouldn't be there with plumbing pipe. Running pipe is better than ruined prints. I can not see that it would be that big of an issue, but then again I've been wrong many times. TIA Mark
