no outside water spicket


Can I run a water line from my washer line to the outside for a hose hookup?

Yes you may.

If the washing machine pipe is 1/2 inch or less and the water pipes closer to the water meter are fatter than 1/2 inch, it would be better to hook up the outside faucet to one of those using 5/8 inch pipe all the way, even if the length of new pipe is longer. This way the outside faucet has better pressure.
