I have a sink with two pipes connecting to the tap (a.k.a faucet) - one for hot and one for cold. There is no hot water in the house, so the hot pipe is disconnected. That means if you open the tap halfway between the hot and cold, the water just flows out of the disconnected pipe instead of the tap. My first thought was to just plug the end of this disconnected pipe, however I fear that this will result in water standing in the pipe leading to legionnaire's disease type problems.
This seems like a pretty common problem that probably has a standard solution, anyone know what that is?
