SO why not get a large bucket and instead of letting that extra rinse go down the drain catch it and use it either again in the washer or to flush toilets etc?

We are in a drought right now and I might actually try this since it would save our well!
I'll have to ask our landlord/in-laws. I'm pretty sure it goes into the wall somehow as it's built straight into a closet with the bare minimum clearance all around.
