[_
CONNECT AND RUN THE VALVE
DRAIN HOSE {CONT.)
• Elevating the drain hose may cause back
pressure that could reduce the brine draw during
recharge. If raising the drain line overhead
is
required to get to the drain point, measure the
inlet water pressure to the softener first. For inlet
pressures between 20 and 50 psi, do not raise
higher than 8' above the floor. For inlet pressure
above 50 psi, the drain line mall be raised to a
maximum
height of 14'.
