There actually may be a crawl space, as the foundation is pier and beam, not slab on grade. I don't know how accessible it is to crawl around under there though, and am not really inclined to do it. The only plumbing I know of for sure in the garage is the fire sprinkler valve. I think I have the "blueprints" (not that anyone uses anything other than CAD anymore), so maybe they're worth checking. Ah, my Dad is coming here in a week, so I'll talk to him about it. He ran his own HVAC & plumbing engineering firm in LA for 30+ years.  

Oh, and I saw on EP that a pump and accumulator sold separately add up to only $240, or I could get the pump from Chris and then the accumulator on EP is only about $50...so the harness mounted combo is definitely off my table.

If the machine can be plumbed, I highly recommend setting it up as I did. I dislike plumbing and have never been all the good at it. The job gets done, but not without a few lost bits of knuckle skin and utterances which are not allowed to be related on this forum. But the JG was so freakin easy that I whistled through it. I am sure you read my plumbing articles on my website. I ran it under my place and there really was not a whole lot of room there either.

let me know if you want to talk about it off the lost. Once you plumb a machine you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Then, put a waste bottle under the machine for the drip tray. Three gallon capacity for waste lasts about two or three weeks depending on use.

Thanks Randy, that's a kind offer. After I check out the plans and figure out the best option, I may take you up on it. Yeah, I read both of your plumb-in articles. They're pretty clear...and I'm sure will be helpful once I get my plan of attack sorted out.
