INSTALL
A REMOTE
DRAIN
POINT
AND
AIR GAP
(Remote Location)
You can also run the drain tubing
to an existing drain in
the house. A floor drain, laundry tub, standpipe, sump,
etc. are suitable drain points. See Figure 10. This type of
drain is the preferred
over the p- trap drain adapter.
Check your local codes.
Longer lengths of tubing
(see
parts list in back of manual)
may be needed.
Always
be sure to provide
an air gap between
the end of
the hose and the drain point. This will prevent water
from
backing
up into the system. Airgaps
are required
code in
most areas.
To install a remote drain point, complete
the following
steps:
1. Locate the 1/4"
red tubing on the Reverse Osmosis fil-
ter assembly.
See Figure 9.
2. Determine
if this length is long enough to reach the
drain point.
3. If not, disconnect
the 1/4"
red tubing
and replace
with
an adequate
length of tubing
to reach the drain point.
Refer to Step 6 later in the manual
on how to discon-
nect and connect tubing.
NOTE: A flow control insert is located inside the
elbow fitting that the drain tube connects to. Refer to
Figure 26. Leave this fitting in place.
4. Run the tubing
to the drain point and secure at the end
with
a bracket
(purchased
locally).
See Figure 10.
Provide a 1-1/2"
air gap between
the end of the tube
and the drain.
See Figure 10.
