I have four separate rooms in the basement of an 1889 home in Ohio.  The basement rooms have brick floors and the walls are limestone.  I only use the areas for storage of certain items and for the kids to run around occasionally.  I want to add humidifier(s) to the area.  My question has to do with disposing of the water.  I can run waste hoses to the outside but I am concerned about freezing in the colder weather and accumulating too much standing water around the foundation.  I do not have a drain/trap in the area at all. Is there any way to force this water through an existing waste drain?  I have an HVAC system near, washing machine drain (ceiling height), etc.

If your HVAC system has a condensate pump, how about running the dehumidifier drain line(s) into that?

Too easy. 

Make the little ankle biters work for their keep.
