Can you buy a Y junction and run a garden hose from the existing hose?
There are Y junctions with on/off valves.
I work in a bsement too, shared with washer/dryer, so I put one of those Ys in the washer water connection, garden hose and voila!
Same fro drain, you can even get a large tray, make a hole on the bottom and run another piece of garden hose to the drain.
