    Linking nexus waste into drain

    This year Iím looking to connect my nexus drain outlet into main drainage and curios as to how others have done it?
    Iíve done a bit of searching on forum but canít see if itís been covered before?

    Currently I roll out a flexible hose into the nearby (5m) drain and empty it that way but Iíve a few drainage bits left over from other projects and Iíd like to come up with something a bit better this year!

    Iíve a bit of an idea in mind but wondering if Iím overcomplicating it so Iím keen to see how others have done it

    TIA

    Hi mate mine is simple rubber boot to 50mm pipe and knocked a hole thought the main drain brick work at man hole ( luckily it's in my garden) . The garden is sloped in my Favour. . I do have a climb in the pipe work at the very start of it but it still works brilliant for me

    Don't forget to include a waste trap (or four 90s will do) the same as normal household waste pipes to stop smells or bag bugs reaching the Nexus.

    Mine had a rise in the pipe work which will technically do the same

    When I built my pond I added to main drain and ran a soil pipe underground to the filter pit, and then short run of pipework into that. I did add a 'sight glass' in the waste run so I could see if it was bunged up, but fingers crossed so far been fine. Appreciate its not so straightforward doing this once the pond/pit etc is built..

    As others have said make a trap from 90į bends to stop bad smells coming back up.
    or if you can just fit a P trap or Gully as they are probably cheaper than 3 or 4 90į's

    i used a 90įbend with 2 x 45į bends to make an inline trap, but mine just discharges into one end of an ACO drain.
    the trap actually stops the noise from the drum wash travelling down the pipe too...

    i also hooked up the 4" bottom drain purge to the drainage pipe as well

    Hi Buddy

    I just ran my outlet into a waste pipe where my sink / washing machine waste goes

    I was lucky as my pond is gravity, but higher than the drain so all works great.

    Good luck as it makes a big difference for cleaning and in the summer trickle in / out

    Other option is a pump in a sump with a float switch if wanting to lift the water

    Thanks for the input everyone!

    My plan is to add a gully next to the nexus and drop the waste into it,Iíll then pipe (110mm) to the nearest gulley (kitchen,which is the end of the run) and Iíll change that gulley for a plastic one to accept the new line so not dissimilar to what most have done I guess

    I was thinking that a slightly more cowboy way could be to just bury 40mm waste pipe and drill/break through the side of the current gulley but I already have some 110mm stuff so wouldnít save much anyway

    The patio is just a concrete patio so cutting/digging out a trench for the new pipe and reinstating isnít much of a job

    Is the 50mm pipe pressure solvent stuff mate? As above I did think about 40mm waste pipe but then i thought it should probably be pressure spec to bury it? By the time Iíve forked out for that I wouldnít save anything-I already have some 110mm underground stuff
