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.

    Hahaha. Omg. Good idea but they rather eat my car tires. I'm serious, they busted up a tire really bad.
