I had a few questions about the proper way to install a wye and split off the hot water for a dishwasher.
I have 1.5" wye and if I understand correctly it is supposed to go between the sink and the trap. What is the best way to install it. The sink is connected to the ABS trap by a copper piece which threads onto the sink and onto the ABS. I'm sure my description is horrible so I attached a pic. Threads are circled in red.
For the hot water. The shut off that is there now is soldered on the inlet side and threaded for flexible hose on the outlet. Is there a way to split this off without soldering? I would like to avoid it since my skills and equipment for plumbing are limited. Alternatively, would it be code to tee off after the valve, so the sink and dishwasher share a shutoff? I attached a pic.
Your help is really appreciated.
