Yep...but think about it.... Where does the water go that your washing machine fills up with? There has to be a drain. And as far as it being downstairs and the tank up stairs..I would go to home depot and get a water pump for 100.00 or so. Attatch a garden hose to it. Drop the pump in the trash can full of water with the hose attatched. Keep the hose coiled beside the can. Anytime you need water just pull the hose over to the tank. Thats what I plan on doing. My tank and laundry room are on opposite sides of the house.

The other option would be to run the hose up the basement wall, across the basement ceiling, into the wall that the tank is on. Then just punch through the sheet rock and run the hose right into your sump.

I took my readings and all seems fine, except my salinity is way low, I will raise it slowly over the next few days. Maybe it's not the tap water after all?

Salinity 1.019 (Usually 1.022)
Nitrate 0
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
PH 8.2 - 8.4
Phosphate 0 - 0.05
Temp 80
