I hate seeing my laundry water go down the drain. It just seems like such a waste.
Those soapy suds won’t do any damage to my lawn, so on hot dry days, I pop a length of pipe loosely underneath the outlet pipe, and let the kids know!!!
It doesn’t have to be a permanent fixture, and at the rate I do laundry I wouldn’t want it always going onto my lawn, or else it would be a mud pit! Much to the kids delight.
