I want to get to the upstairs sink, a water pipeline "nature", ie by shunting the softener and this, to draw the quintessence of a machine I just bought alkaline water makes for excellent health. (Details in PM)

Not knowing or weld or solder, I wanted to make this water supply polyethylene

how I connect? Is this possible?
on photo

copper tube that I would do what quilting is dia 18. It is the output of a filtering system pilophos and feeds the water softener.

Are there connections to that?

Secondly could you tell me why there is this white substance and a few drops of water?

Thank you for all the information you can provide me.

hello there is as self piercing valves but the easiest is to use a T-fitting bicone but for that you will cut the pipe to

White traces a leak at the nut of the bicone is streaked limestone

good day

See if there is not a T can be screwed at the output of T exists. After just put to an output thereof to a flexible stainless steel water softener and from the second output RIP.

Hello and thank you both.
great ideas.
I found on the net T which allows the output of the sting me pilotphos of I feed the hose into the softener and the other I put a valve 1/4t etje go towards the floor.
Per is Polyethylene?

But maybe with these couplings, elbows there so I can do it in copper?
In any case thank you

RIP it is the polyethylene.

I proposed this solution because you did not know or weld or solder. Now everything is perfectly feasible with copper pipes soldered.

You can also do it in copper pipe with threaded fittings but the more connections the greater the risk of leaks, and threaded fittings were not economically Interesting. That said it can do with a little knowledge and without a plumber.
