Drain Connection

Gravity Drain System
Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with all
state and local codes and ordinances. If the ice maker is
provided with a gravity drain system, follow these guidelines
when installing drain lines. This will help keep water from flowing
back into the ice maker storage bin and potentially flowing onto
the floor causing water damage.
Drain lines must have a minimum of
diameter.
Drain lines must have a 1" drop per 48" (2.54 cm drop per
122 cm) of run or
" drop per 12" (6.35 mm per 30.48 cm) of
run and must not have low points where water can settle.
The floor drains must be large enough to accommodate
drainage from all drains.
The ideal installation has a standpipe with a 1 " (3.81 cm) to
2" (5.08 cm) PVC drain reducer installed directly below the
outlet of the drain tube as shown. You must maintain a 1"
(2.54 cm) air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe.
It may be desirable to insulate the drain line thoroughly up to
the drain inlet.
Do not connect the outlet end of the drain tube to a closed
pipe system to keep drain water from backing up into the ice
maker.
