Sorry for butting in on this one, but in the second of your photos there is sight of black corrugated plastic piping immediately before the point where the connector is fixed to the Dandy chassis member.
That type of piping is more often than not used for waste pipes.
So, all considered, I'm with Navver on this one, and, would suggest that any tubing that you can wedge in the gap provided around the outlet nozzle should suffice and operate as a link between the outlet and your waste container.
No KB it's not butting in anyone should feel free to comment about anything on here. Personally I'm very keen that if people feel I'm wrong they tell me. I firmly believe that if I argue about something and I'm proved wrong I've still benefitted because I know more than I did.
It's odd how we can see different things in photos. D'oh you're right KB what I saw as binding wire is far more likely corrugated pipe with foam insulation ending just before. (did they use the Dandy over winter?) What the wire at the "8 O'clock" position is I'm still wondering.
As I did say you can't judge size on a photo and referring back to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
inlet is an 1
" pipe outlet is a 3
" pipe. Although there is also at least 1 larger diameter of waste pipe.
The acid test is to trace the pipes back now while you might need to have a good look and study if two pipes disappear into the floor their relative positions should still be easy enough to judge. evanr has the advantage of an underfloor water pump so it should be really easy to differentiate inlet from outlet as the inlet should lead directly to the pump inlet and be visible all the way.
I'd not want to use "waste" pipe as water feed pipe and certainly wouldn't want to try to keep "inlet" pipe clear if I were trying to get it to function as a waste and I doubt anyone has tried to do this but if in confusion it is what the pipe is plumbed to or from that is important not for what classification we would give to the pipe being used.
