It is attached to the faucet.

The end of the faucet has a hose thread at the end. I used a female hose adapter to female pipe thread fitting.

This way I can get hot and cold through each hose bib. That also saves a lot time. Rather than turn on the faucet and get the temperature just where you want it every time you use it, I set the temperature where I want it and it leave that way, then I just turn on the hose bibs when I need them.

What a great idea. My mop sink in the basement has the same threaded faucet. I'm constantly switching from faucet to bottle washer to spray hose, etc. Can't wait to give this one a try. Thanks for the photos.
