GW: on most units you can remove the reservoir and connect a hose on the small pipe that the water drips out of. Make sure to put a little clamp to hold the hose on to this pipe!!! Also check if there is a trip switch that the reservoir pushes against when in place? You will have to keep that engaged with something.
Don't be shocked too much when you see your hydro bill when you return tho, these things suck a bit of juice and will run non stop!
