Install Utility Sink in Basement

I have an unfinished basement and I'd like to put in a simple stand alone utility sink. I have plastic pipes that are likely polybutylene, they have silver straps on the fittings and the pipes are grey, I would like to splice in CPVC to connect the utility sink with hot and cold water.

My question is do I need special fittings to connect the CPVC?

Also can I use the drain that the washing machine uses to drain the sink?

Thanks
Jeremy

Jeremy: welcome to the forums! Last first. You can't cut the stand pipe on the washing machine drain. It must extend as it presently does. You can, however, install a "Y" and inverted 45 street L to attach your sink to, allowing the stand pipe to remain high.
The polybutylene pipe can be cut and you can use one of the gray "pex" type tees and install the cpvc to the outfeed part and continue with the cpvc to the sink supply.
