We just bought a brick house and the laundry room dryer vent is into a room in the garage and not out an outside wall. We would rather not vent the dryer out the brick outside wall. Someone mentioned that we should vent the dryer into a water box. Are you familiar with such a thing and can you tell mel where to get one.

Driers product LOTS of moisture.

And the "water box" just makes that much more.

It needs to be vented out doors.

The water box allows the lint from the drier to collect some of it and also does an amazing of turning the room it is located into an amazing sauna with the posibility of severe mold growth and lots of cool looking lint on the walls,floors and ceiling (hope no one has any lung disorders.

As an added benefit, if this is a gas drier you can watch people turn a gorgeous shade of blue from carbon monoxide poisoning, just make sure you take out heavy life and health insurance insurance.
