Legally speaking, any such waste water should be tapped directly into your home's sewer line, read permits and plumbers.

Just put in a sump pit and pump outside or under your shed for your drains to run into. Then use a garden hose for your discharge line. You could hang the hose on the side of the shed, just like a garden hose, when not brewing. I don't imagine freezing is a big problem in Glendale, so you could also bury the garden hose a few inches under the surface.


Edit Also you never really have enough outlets, so when wiring, add about 25% to the outlets you think you want or need.

I put a couple of these in the ground for my water filtration system to backwash into. They work realy well and require less of a footprint then A same volume dry well. You can buy as many as you need for water volume, they just lock together and get secured with screws. I picked them up at a local plumbing supply store.

This seems like an awfully simple solution - especially since my need for a lot of drainage is only there when I am brewing or cleaning pots/kegs. The rest of the time its just a drip tray for 7 taps and I don't plan on spilling that much beer.

My original idea was a sump pump in a storage tub under the sink. Then I upgraded my idea to the outdoor sump pit.

This seems like a good place to start. I can have a drain pipe coming out of the shed "crawlspace" into a tub and do a sump pump out of that. If I want to change it in the future - I just trench in a connection from that drain pipe.
