I'm installing a softener in the garage. House is on well with septic. I'm thinking of running the drain line into the house washer drain. To do this I would have to run the drain line overhead thru the ceiling to the house. My question, does a softener "push" the water out the drain, thus allowing the hose to run overhead, or must it be run downward of the outlet?
Not an expert, but mine anyway has pressure behind it when it drains. Before going too far though, I just wanted to mention that you may want to check with your local jurisdiction, as there has been a fair amount of controversy concerning the affect of water softeners on septic systems, and I believe that some municipalities have legislation regarding the right and wrong way to handle this.
