Want to re-use my bath water with discharge pump. Advice?

goldenecho(Z8 (Waco TX))June 19, 2011

I'd like to star using my bath-water to water my yard. I don't want to install a greywater system. I just want to get a pump of some sort which will pump the water through a regular garden hose which I can stick out the window or weave through the front door to water the yard. I'm thinking maybe a discharge pump like those used to empty a spa or pool would work, but I need something that can attach to a garden hose, since a short discharge hose just wont do it. Any suggestions on what type of pump to get?

is your bathtub in the secound floor? If so you can hook up the drain to pvc and go right out, gravity will do it for you.

Virtually any pump will work with bathwater as long as the water doesn't have bleach in it. It takes teflon or viton seals in the pumps to withstand sodium hypochlorite.
