Ideas Please. Washing machine discharge line>


Hey everyone,

My washing machine is right next to a double laundry sink. The guys that installed it just zip tied the discharge hose on the sink, needless to say it moved one day. I know good time to clean the concrete floor. For now i did the unthinkable ( chain and paper clip binders. LOL, i know ( Ghetto ). Whats the best way to either attach it to the sink like it is run, or whats the best way?

Get some 2 inch white PVC pipe to be a sleeve to insert the washing machine hose into and hold the hose in position pointing down into the sink. You wil have to find or have or install something nearby to fasten the PVC pipe to. You can put a T joint (PVC pipe) in the middle of that sleeve to provide some extra material (the stem of the T) to make it easier to fasten the sleeve onto a support outside the tub.

Even if the washing machine hose goes all the way through the sleeve which stays dry inside, use glue if it takes multiple pieces (like the T fitting in the middle) to make up this sleeve assembly. You don't want it to come apart at some random time.
