Anti Gravity Plumbing

Postby Knotty1 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 4:42 pm

Any ideas and advice please for the effective plumbing of a washing machine in an underground cellar so that the water flows up and out against gravity into drainage please? Do I need a pump of sorts. All ideas welcome. Thanks Knotty

Simply Build It

Try extending the waste pipe and see if the washing machine can pump the waste out. You may need to fit a non return valve to stop back flow.
