Build an Outdoor Sink and Connect It to the Outdoor Spigot

2-3 Hours
Easy
I have wanted an outdoor sink forever and finally got around to building one! I used pressure treated lumber from the cull bin at Home Depot (extra cheap!), an old sink, an old faucet, and plumbing parts from the hardware store! I connected the faucet to the same water line my garden hose is connected to... and I love it!

It was so easy to connect the faucet to the outdoor spigot - just a few inexpensive parts from the hardware store. The drain is a regular "tee" which, for now, drains into a bucket but will eventually run through a PVC line into the drainage path in front of the house.

    Stumbled across this neat project while searching for simplest design for fittings to garden hose to save me a half hour of scratching my head in the plumbing section at the Depot. I'm wanting a "y" configuration for both sides active. I didn't see what you did but suspect one side was capped or maybe the 2 handle design doesn't allow bypass like the single handle mixer does.

    To add to your creation here I might suggest a little garden fountain pump dropped in the bucket with a small hose run out to a garden bed so you never have to pull out the bucket. Be sure it's plugged into a proper exterior GFCI protected outlet or just get a portable GFCI to connect intermediately.

    Would be even more awesome if the water flow could be controlled a foot pump. I would think that most of the time one is using this, their hands are dirty and would avoid touching faucet knobs with dirty hands.
