I was hoping to have my basement dehumidifier drain by itself, but the only drain I have available is the washing machine hookup to the main drain (see attached picture). I could locate the unit high enough so that it is almost at the top level of the existing pipe. Can I attach the drip line to this pipe just low enough for gravity to do its job or is that going to cause a problem with the washing machine draining?
If it is possible, anyone have a suggestion on how to make the connection? The dehumidifier has a standard hose hookup.
