  • mixing valve for garage hose

    I am installing a utility sink in my garage. I have an existing hot and cold supply. Besides hooking to the sink, I would like to have a single hose connection where I can adjust the amount of hot and cold supply. What plumbing devices are available for the best installation?

      ^^^ Yeah, What he said. And don't leave out the vacuum breaker.
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

        above is a link to a utility faucet with a MHT connection on the spout, other things that I have done in the past, you could rough in a thermostatic mixing valve and volume control, and just have the outlet be a 3/4 MHT adapter, or you could just rough in 2 hosebibbs, and get a Y hose to mix them with. The options are really endless, I guess it all depends on what you are actuallly looking for.

            I've got one of the woodford ones like this:

            It works really well and is a huge convenience to have h/w outside.

              We usually use the moen HC200508 hot and cold sill faucet for that.

                Thanks everyone for the great advice. I am an electrician by trade. Please explain what a vacuum breaker does. Also, I really like the sill mixing valves but this instllation will be surface mounted on plywood. The sill is too low in the garage. I have hot and cold 1/2" lines already coming through the sill and then an elbow with lines running up to a height that a bucket can fit below. Thanks again for all your help!

                  In a nutshell, it prevents water (which could be contaminated) from being siphoned back into the public water system
