Connecting a washing machine without water supply

To forever forget about the structures from a frequent wash with the hands from which the surface layers of the skin are extended, use the washing machine. But at the cottage, in a country house, where there is no centralized water supply, use the washing machine without any water supply is difficult.

When required?

Washing machine is needed whenever the contaminated lingerie accumulates in large quantities, and there are almost no stuffed on the eve of things. Not every settlement is equipped with a water supply – in the village it can not be. Country villages, not included in the nearby towns and villages, do not have water pipes initially: the territory has been settled recently, dackets install well water supply on their sites on their own.

The simplest way is to use the automatic washing machine in general without any compounds. In the compartment, intended for washing powder and the scale of scale, the desired amount of water is poured (10-12 liter bucket).

The washing cycle is divided into at least 2 stages: actually washing, then still requires as much water for washing off the waste detergent. Having found that there is no new portion of water, the car will stop, while you cannot open the door – it is blocked to avoid pouring water to the floor from the drum compartment. To wash out, it is necessary to pour another portion of water.

The abuse of frequent stops of the washing process can lead to premature cargo failure. In addition, the user can not move away from the car for a long time.

How to connect?

To avoid inconvenience related to the flooding of water into the cleaning tank of the machine, required Summing up at least the simplest water supply. The easiest option is Install a water tank above the level of washing machine – Water will come from him by a self-shot. Disadvantage – Pulling the water to the tank. Considering that even in the “fast” wash mode, no less than 50 liters of water will be required, it is necessary to pour at least 4-5 vest to the tank.

Partially the problem is solved if water from the roof drains is gained into the tank. Rain water softer water and soil. It will take the removal of excess water so that the tank is not overflowing with long-term rain or shower – it can be sent, for example, on the garden beds or to the trees planted in the garden, bushes in the hall or to collect water in other tanks or a bath in the yard. Considering the summer drought, becoming frequent phenomenon (when sometimes there is no rain in the course of the month), such a way will not always implement. You depend on the weather whims: it was raining – lingerie was filled, no – I have to endure and wait until it goes.

How to ensure water pressure?

Not all brands and models of washing machines open the water supply to the washing tank: some water pressure is required at least 1 atmosphere. To ensure it, You need to raise the tank not lower than a few meters above the washing machine. Not all dachas have such an opportunity, and it would have to raise it on an electric pillar, which will not allow the power supply company.

The following option is the organization of artificial water supply. A pump is introduced into the system, which allows you to lift the pressure to the desired one bar. The simplest pump that consumes only a few dozen watts from the outlet is capable of providing such pressure, but it is deprived of the automatic circuit that turns it off when the “Washing” value is exceeded.

More powerful pumps that consume from hundreds of watts up to 2 kilowatt will provide higher pressure. They are used to organize water supply to plumbing communications in the house. So that they do not work continuously, the pressure switch is included in their gap. This is a device in which the pressure sensor is located except the relay itself.

The threshold value at which this relay includes the supply of electricity to the pump is configured. As the maximum pressure value, the value of 1-2 bar is chosen. Larger pressure to nothing: the pump is faster to wear, accompanying water to swapping significantly more effort. One bar for smooth operation of the washing machine is more than enough.

The water source is a well drilled to a depth of 15 or more to the first pure aquifer. The plastic pipeline is stretched into it, which is inserted another pipe, smaller cross section. At the exit of this pipeline, the pump itself is located, located, for example, in the basement under the veranda, where the well itself is located.

More simplified system using pump and well – Filling out an external tank with water. It is preferable to use another automatic element – relay with a float level gauge, turning off the pump when the tank is filled with the throat. If the relay block does not set down the level – You will have to follow yourself, so that the barrel does not overflow, and the room where the washing machine is worth it, in the end it was not flooded. Here the pressure does not play any role.

This system will work only with the machine whose inlet water valve does not have a pressure sensor. When choosing a budgetary machine for giving, this feature is crucial – learn instructions for different models.

How to start?

So, the model of the washing machine, the external pump and the control relay are purchased, pipeline hoses also have. It is believed that electricity in the country also has: electric boards with automata and meter connected, the counter is seated, the connection “legalized”. Make the following.

  1. Under the well and output the pipeline.
  2. Mount the pump in a reliable and protected place. Check if it shakes water well – pour a few liters of water into a pipe that goes into the ground so that a solid water column is formed in it, then turn on the pump and type any water tank. Water should go without failures.
  3. If it’s necessary – Smonrt immediate and pressure switch.
  4. Install the wiring to the pump and collect the simplest electrical circuit, Connecting a sequential pump, pressure switch (or level gauge), an electricity source (line in a shield included through one of the automatic fuses).
  5. Swipe the second line (with a power outlet) to the place where the washing machine is installed.
  6. Display drainage (drain) hose From the machine to the place of your sewage (most often this is a drainage pipe connected to the toilet), check the reliability of the drain pipeline.
  7. Connect the water line From the pump through the water supply circuit in the device with pressure relay. If a float level gauge is installed in an external tank – move the pipe from the pump to the water loop of this device. Water supply is carried out under the control of the latter.
  8. Connect the water supply line to Baku, And the tank itself – to the water supply nozzle in the car.

Run the collected water supply system in test mode. Make sure the pump is properly transported, feeds water from the well to the tank. Check if the connections do not happen. If the system works reliably, turn on the washing machine, load the linen and select the washing program. The result is impeccable washing and the absence of any problems with its own.

This system, providing the right pressure, simulates a pumping station. The fact is that tens of thousand rubles may cost a full pumping station. The contour with a pressure switch (or water level), working with a conventional pump, replaces the pumping station and cost only several thousand rubles. Even if you do not use an external, and submersible pump (it works at the level of the aquifer, and not at the top, outside) – the principle of operation of the substitute for the pumping station does not change. This solution is the most popular: they enjoy almost all dacms and owners of country houses.

Well can be replaced by a well. But the general principle does not change: a full-fledged pump in both cases can cope with water lifting by 20 m.

Water purification from large particles

Borehole or well water Need cleaning From the grains and pieces of wood, small pebbles, sewer fragments – they can damage the mechanisms and water channels of the machine. Before the washing machine in the water line, the simplest mechanical filter-sand. If there are no-sized large particles of iron in the water (iron ignition), they are easily removed by a magnetic filter. Both filters are removed from time to time.


Washing underwear – with a fully thoughtful water supply system – at the cottage or in a country house will not cause any problems. Any, even the most “capricious” washing machine easily adapts to any living conditions, if nearby is a renewable water source.
