I have a bastement studio...have run a hose through a window into the line to a plastic
washing sink and it works just fine. I ran a drain line directly into the hole for my sump
pump and it's ideal.
I purchased a Gleco clay trap to keep the clay sludge out of my septic system, and I'm
very pleased with it...worth every penny.
The one thing I'd encourage is to use heated water if you are able, that makes a huge
comfort difference for cleaning up....I also use a small shop vac (you can often find
them on good sales) for keeping the dust level down since they dump your debris into water.
Have fun with your new space, Melinda King in Vermont
