My washing machine drain hose inserts into a drain pipe just larger than the
drain hose. Problem is some water is not shooting down the pipe. There is
a elbow about 6-8inches down from where it inserts.
Any suggestions on adapting this?
I have no laundry tub
The outlet of my drain hose is 1-1/4 and the drain pipe is 1-1/2 PVC so
it was easy to install a threaded adapter from the local hardware store and
top it off with a nut and rubber washer borrowed from a J trap. With the
tight fit, air can no get in to break any possible suction on the drain pipe
so I teed off the drain pipe and installed an air admittance valve higher
than the drain hose. Perhaps overkill on that.
