Brilliant! Wish I had thought of that. About to test it out. Went to the hardware store for the fittings and no sweating needed. Just a compression fitting directly to two hose connectors.
I used 3/8" at 50'. A lot simpler than I thought. Was at LHBS yesterday and they were $120is for 3/8' at 25' or $160 for 1/2" at 50'. My total cost was as follows
3/8" at 50' soft copper = $45
3/8" to Hose connector = $5 x2 = $10
Total = $55 and I live in Hawaii so everything is slightly more.
pipe cutter = $12
25' hose = $12
total project = $80 and I have a pipe cutter I can use for the next project and an extra hose. Plus I have $35 gift card for Lowes thanks to the mother in law.
Now just trying to figure out the best place to put the run off. I don't want to flood the yard and I don't want 40 gallons of water running down the street either.
