Wort chiller hookup to sink, instructables
I'm just not sure how much water flow you to get out of it. Attach the adapter To attach the adapter you just built, simply unscrew the existing cold water supply line running from the water valve where it connects to the line running to the faucet, and reattach both lines to the sides of the add-a-tee.
If only hot water comes out, then congratulations! At least that is my experience.
Personally, I would recommend getting the ball valves with the locking pins. On second thought though you might not be satisfied with the amount of flow. Your adapter is installed, and ready for use.

If you don't do this, at best you'll end up with a mess, at worst you could get hurt or destroy something. Heat it up in the kettle. That's a good idea. I never used one but I've seen them. Depending on the size of the copper pipe you may be able to use what they use when they want to tie in a icemaker into old copper pipes for a new refrigerator.
