Hello Guys, I have a Portable washing machine in apartment and for safety I purchased a washing machine drain pan( same as one in pic below) and placed it under washing machine . Since couple months ago my washing machine drain hose from inside disconnected( I don't know why , maybe because of the loss of adhesive) and huge capacity of water came out , I decided to prevent it.So I placed the drain pan under washing machine , now looking for some ways or something inexpensive to connect to drain pan to remove water immediately after leaking before overflowing from pan, what is your suggestion? Note: I bought a Hydrofarm AAPW160 160-GPH Active Aqua Submersible Pump but it didn't remove water quickly , only 160 Gallon per hour . Thanks,

Hi loyali, lets look at wht caused the problem in the first place. can you post a picture of the wshing machine hose where it connects ? if i can see what blew apart maybe we can fix that problem, so an expensive pan and pump wont be needed

In the center of the forefront of the picture is the high capacity drain connection hole and the drain adapter is pictured...Why the question?

Unfortunately I cannot take a picture right now because I should open back of the washing machine and... but the problem is the hose , one side of hose connected to drain pump and other side connected to external drain hose.and because of pressure and hot water that comes to drain hose it removed the glue or adhesive and disconnected .
