3 supply lines for sink


When my house was built I asked the plumber to rough in a place for a bar sink. There are three pex supply lines comming out of the wall. Red, blue and white. I know what the red and blue are for, but what about the white. My guess was for a sprayer.

Any suggestions?

Go back to the manifold to see what each color is.
Normally, a sprayer supply would come off of a faucet body diverter.
It may be possible that two of those lines are hot water? One for the sink facuet and another for a supply line to a small refrigerator ice maker?
Just my guesses for now, until a pro plumber comes along (I'm not one).

Thanks Mike, I thought another supply line for a dishwasher but an ice maker would also make sence.

It's strange that they would use white. Can you follow it back and see where it goes.

I could only guess it is in a fishished basement.
