We do not have a large yard but we have a lot of gardens with paths running between them. I do not water a lot, but when I do, threading the hose around then winding it back up is a lot of work. Jim, always looking for ways to make things easier came up with a plan.
He put a Y connector on the back water facet. On one side a water hose is connected for close by watering, a washing machine supply line is connected to the other side.
The washing machine supply line runs to a short PVC pipe fitted with a connector and elbow. At the other end of the PVC pipe is another elbow connected to PVC pipe running underground the desired length. Since it will be disconnected in the winter, freezing is not an issue, so it is only buried a few inches deep to be out of sight.
