Is there a way to prevent the backwash water from digging divits in the lawn? The lawn slopes downward and the force of the water digs out "holes" in the lawn where it sprays. Is there an attachment of some sort that would spray the water rather than shoot it straight?

You using one of those blue backwash hoses? Would a longer hose reach to someplace better to discharge the water?

My backwash hose is a length of PVC that goes behind the equipment into a dry ditch. Can you organize a better place for the water to go than the grass? Use a different type of hose or go PVC?
