converting a bathroom sink

hey there--

how do i change the plumbing in my bathroom so that my vanity can accomodate two sinks instead of one? i assume there is an attachment we can use that will "split" the waterflow, but i'm not sure. we'd like to take out an old countertop, sink, and faucet and replace it with a new apparatus with two sinks. any suggestions?

thanks,
mariam

Cool

What type of supply pipes do you have? Copper? CPVC plastic?
What type of drain pipe? PVC white plastic?
For both water supply pipes, you just need to put a T on the ends to split the water to two individual stop valves. Use the appropriate length flex supply lines from the stops to each faucet.
(Hot water on left, cold water on right.)
You'll have to solder the Ts onto copper pipe, but can use compression stops. You just glue CPVC.
Good Luck!
Mike
