apartment washer on 4th floor
If there are no spigots to attach the washing machine hoses to, building codes will probably require that you get a plumber to install some. (For multifamily buildings)
You can hook up just the cold washing machine hose to a non-adjustable sink spigot with screw on aerator by using an adapter in place of the aerator. Cap off the hot inlet for the machine. Leave the machine on the cold setting. Adjust the water temperature using the sink faucets, optionally you can set separate temperatures for wash and rinse manually by coming back at the right time in the cycle.
A swinging faucet spigot may leak at the pivot if you connect it to a washing machine this way.
Turn off the washing machine water when the machine is not in use regardlessof what kind of hookup you have.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
