Introduction: Dog Proofing My Washing Machine Drain Line.
My doggies have a nasty habit of removing the washing machine drain line in their quest to rearrange my garage. See one of the main culprits?
Time to fix this mess.
Step 1: The Drain Line.
See the teeth marks? My doggies eat most anything: plastic, car tires, mud guards, pepper, Veges, Styrofoam, other dogs etc.
The drain line is actually flexible conduit used for electrical installations. It has metal on the inside.
Step 2: Getting to Drilling!
Using a masonry bit and my cordless hammer drill I made 2 holes.
Step 3: Installing Anchors.
Using wall plugs and stainless steel screws, I made 2 anchor points.
Step 4: Securing the Drain Line.
Using aluminum wire I looped a length around the anchors.
Step 5: Completion!
Twist tying the wire onto the drain line, now my wicked doggies can't remove it easily.
