I'm looking into acquiring a Suds Saver machine and would love to have something like the one offered by Sears in 1968, which was internally plumbed to hold suds for their Kenmore washers.

Where do these typically turn up? How difficult are they to find?

If anybody has one, can you post pictures of the plumbing set up in case I need to Jerry-Rig something from PVC pipes and modern parts?

They have 2 models so be sure to look at the specifications closely.

I just wish they would hold 21 gallons, vs. 19 gallons.  Large capacity Maytags call for the larger tub. :(

Catch the first 4 or 5 gallons in a pail then lift it out of the sink and let the rest of the water go in the sink.
