water supply line to a new dishwasher install


ok...i'm installing a new dishwasher where there has never been one before. i'm new to this and don't know all the proper lingo so i'm gonna do my best. i was wondering if they make a connection that will allow me to tap into my hot water supply line to my sink, and then off of that run two seperate supply lines, one to my sink and the other to my dishwasher. please help!!!!

There is a piercing valve that some use on copper lines. It would go over your existing copper line and it pierces the pipe and allows the flow of water to go to your dishwasher. I hope I got it straight that you only want to add a dishwasher where there was not one before. You will still need to deal with the drain, and ensure you have a vent stack near enough to have air behind your water for your drain to flow.

I would not use a piercing valve, they are prone to leaks. i'd go with what Mike suggested, something like this:

Those piercing valves should be banned---nothing but trouble.
