okay...I feel really dumb, searching for so long for a solution that might actually be super simple.
I found *this* Washing Machine Hose w/Elbow.
We figured out after getting the dryer and a dryer periscope that if the hoses would lay flat against the wall, we'd be fine. What started as the plumbing guy at OSH suggesting a hose elbow, like they have in gardening, became a search that gave this handy product. Anyone ave any experience with them. I'm ready to buy and forget all the crazy open up the wall stuff...
Any yays or nays for such a product??
