    Simple(ish) question I hope. I'm trying to put in a second washing machine, but there is only one blue cold water connector. I guess that I should be able to attach another one, but the mass of pipes behind the washing machine makes no sense to me. Can anyone work out from this photos whether the pipes are able to be connected - Imgur: The magic of the Internet - or if not how I can work out what to do next.

    From what I can see , take it combi boiler is above worktop ?
    From left to right ; Heating / Heating / safety discharge / Gas / Hot water / Cold water , water meter in bottom right with main cold water stop cock below it, cant make out what stop cock on back wall is for maybe out side tap.

    Get a brass one if you must use one as the plastic ones leak often

    Thanks for the tip about the y-piece - did not know those existed. Will pop down to b&q and get one of those and hopefully should be ok.
