After my kids have a bath, I want to be able to pump the water out into the garden. They usually just have a bath in water without soap etc. so it's still relatively clean.
Usually I just try to siphon the water out with a hose but this doesn't work very well as the bath level is very close to the level of the garden. The hose also has to go up and out the bathroom window which makes starting the siphon difficult.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be a good way to achieve getting the water out of the bath into the garden without spending heaps on a water pump?
EDIT I haven't spent any more time on this yet however my thoughts are to see if I can salvage a water pump from on old washing machine and wire it up to pump the water out...thanks for your suggestions.
