Hi, I have an Ikea waste & trap to fit on my new ikea sink but there's only a pipe for a single appliance waste and i have a dishwasher and washing machine needing go through it.
I've phoned ikea and they say i can buy a part from a plumbers merchant that will turn the single appliance waste into a double but having searched a few i've not found anything.
I have a standard waste with a double appliance option but....wondering about the compatibility as apparently ikea is weird sizes. It looks like a standard 40mm to me...so thinking i may be able to mix and match the parts after the drain but before the trap and combine.
Hopefully i've uploaded a pic.
Any ideas/advice welcome.
Thank you

Why not just fit the standard waste with the double appliance fittings?

I would have to go buy another strainer waste and overflow. Would rather not have to do that. The overflow on the sink is a rectangle not standard round so having trouble sourcing.

My view is that if you're gonna do a job, do it right first time. When you think that these items may be fitted for 10 years + a little outlay now is worth it.

It's your money and choice though.

Why not fit a standpipe with two inlets?

The trouble with spigots is they trap stuff and get blocked and can back feed.
