4. CONNECT AND RUN THE VALVEDRAIN HOSE
• Use
the
provided
drain
hose
(20'
length
included)
to attach
to the
valve
drain
fitting.
To kee I) water
pressure
fl'om
blowing
the
hose
off,
use
a hose
clamp
to secure
in place.
Cut
the
necessary
length
and
use
the
remainder
in Step
5.
• i,ocate
the
other
end
of the
hose
at a suitable
drain
point
(floor
drain,
sump,
latm(h
T tub,
etc.)
that
terminates
at the
sewer.
Check
and
comply
with
local
codes.
IMPORTANT"
If more
drain
hose
is needed,
it should
be
ordered
fl'om
GE Parts
at 800,626,2002,
The
water
softener
will not
work
if water
cmmot
exit
this
hose
during
recharge,
• Tie
or wire
the
hose
in place
at the
drain
point.
High
water
pressure
will
cause
it to whip
during
the
back-wash
and
tast
rinse
cycles
of recharge.
Also
provide
ma air gap
of at least
P½" between
the
end
of the hose
and
the
drain
point.
An air
gap
prevents
possible
siphoning
of sewer
water
into
the
softener,
if the
sewer
should
"back-ui)."
• Elewtting
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.
Fox" inlet
pressures
between
20 and
50 psi,
do not
raise
higher
than
8' above
the
floor.
Fox" inlet
pressure
above
50 psi,
the
drain
line
mav
be raised
to a maximum
height
of 14'.
4ll. CONNECTING A RIGID VALVEDRAIN TUBE
To adapt
a copper
drain
tube
to the
soflenel,
use a hacksaw
to cut
the
barbed

li'om
the
drain
fitting
as shown
in Fig. 4A. Rotate
the
drain
fitting
st) the
cutting
blade
clears
the
valve
housing
to prevent
damage
to
valve,
guy
a compression
fitting
(l/4"
