Default Using the rinse water

Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch, Andrew G was heard to sing:

I am, and have been, using the boring old garden hose, but it's not good
for the pump, I know (

The thread has prompted me to go hose hunting.

Besides, half the water goes down the trough anyway, as it 'misses' the
hose altogether.
