The previous owner of my house didn't know what the trap primer tubing was when he installed an expensive kitchen faucet and stainless sink in the laundry room, so left the tubing dangling. Is there a trick to connect it without replacing the faucet?

Depending on the diameter of the tubing, and I'm guessing it's not very large since it hardly needs to be, you might be able to install a saddle tap valve to the cold water line and the primer tubing to it.

You're right, it's small; 1/4" tubing -- the saddle valve will work, but I was sort-of hoping for an automatic priming. –  belwood Nov 13 '11 at 0:09
