I live in an apartment where the nearest water spigot outside is more than 100' away. Consequently, I would like to connect my garden hose to the cold water pipe of my hot water heater which is in my storage closet so I can water my plants. What is the best way to do this? I have not been able to find a copper T with two male and one female connectors. Also, people have told me to connect my hose to an indoor faucet, but I want the hose to stay outside. Thanks!
