If you are familirar with this product, awesome, if not, briefly, it’s a platform that’s about 5 inches or so high with a tank behind where the toilet will sit on the platform. A pump in the tank ejects the waste up to the level of the over-head pipe.

I’d like to know if you think it might be able to handle the amount of water that a washing machine would use. Alternatively, would a washing machine simply be able to handle pumping the water up a total of about 8 feet? Maybe bypassing the toilet-tank altogether. I’m looking for a
