Anyone out there connect rodi line to washer via some sort of splitter? I’ve seen it before, but was wondering what kind of piece I would need to be able to run both. Will be running my water line to RODI into garage through the wall.

Thanks I’m advance!

They sell angle stops at Home Depot that will work. I use one for the ice maker in my freezer.
Home Depot sells the splitter from washer to RODI ,and they have the quick disconnect also for the line from RODI

Any idea of what it looks like? Can any of you send me a picture?

This is more of the style I would go with, it is also a lot more reliable than plastic. It will screw right onto your Spicket valve that you hook your washer hose to.

I can’t belive I’ve been unscrewing and screwing back into my sink this whole time smh! Thanks guys, would this part be in plumbing or?

yes, in plumbing or by the RO units in next to the kitchen sink display

i opted for the one without the valve because the shutoff is just below the fitting.... the RO unit is under my sink....

the waste line from the RO unit goes up into my attic across the house and down the wall and tops off my daughters 55 gallon planted freshwater loach tank... that tank has an overflow that i ran outside to water the plants on the side of the house through drip lines....

my RO is set to turn on for 2 minutes every 3 hours with a timer and i have an electric float valve to close a solenoid if the level gets too high

i also have a valve i can turn to direct the RO/DI from the main tank up into the attic and down to the garage for my mixing station

This is what I use. Picked it up at home depot. One connection goes to my washing machine and the other goes to my rodi. The waste line goes to my washing machine waste water. I just turn the rodi valve on whenever I need to fill my storage containers and then turn it back off when I'm finished.

My rodi filter came with a water hose adapter.

Yes, I use this washing machine Y hose that puts the hot and cold into one output. Had it since 2015. It has a longer reach than the hose splitter type.

I use hose splitters on both the hot & cold outputs and connect the washer to one side of each and the rodi to the other side of each. If you don't want to use the hot water, you just close the hose splitter.
