Kitchen faucet splitter


Hi all,

Looking everywhere and can not find the kitchen (not outdoor which are abundant) faucet splitter with two connections.

Best would be with 1 connection going straight downwards and other at 90 deg. Metal, not plastic and with shut off valves.

Can you please help me finding one?

p.s. if it is important - I need it to connect my portable washer to kitchen faucet while still being able to use the sink.
p.p.s. I was advised not to use garden/outdoor splitters in home because they might not be approved for drinking water and because I will need additional adapters.

Thanks!

Would something like this work? Not quite a 90, but goes straight down. Kind of an overkill I know. Orbit 4-port brass splitter w/shut offs.

It can be done with two different fittings.

Any hardware, or box store will have both.

Thank you guys.

But it seams that both of the adapters are for garden faucet. So will require an adapter like joecaption suggests and bigger problem - I am afraid it is not suitable for drinking water (that's what Homedepot guy told me).
That's the one I got, but do not use it because of that:

Any splitter designed for indoor use?

the part that your looking for that may have been made some years ago is no longer probably available, new cross contamination regulations make these devises illegal.

Thank you Javiles for the info.
Though I see that, for example that
http://www.pexsupply.com/Wirsbo-Upon...alve-4-Outlets
is sold, which would make it illegal as well? In description they say "exceed the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act".
In practice it is not different from what I am looking for - just different configuration.

What you picture is for water distribution, not a faucet/fixture connector- quite different in the eyes of people who write and enforce plumbing codes.
