Ok, so I am not going to pretend to know much about water softeners. I disclaim them for a reason. What I saw today raised a question however. The softener had a line running from it, through the attic, and into a vent pipe in the attic. Why? Thanks in advance.
I was flabbergasted. The thing travelled uphill into the attic, and then another four feet into the vent. I just shook my head and thanked my lawyer for disclaiming them in the contract. Should I make a comment about it or what? I wouldn’t really have a clue what I’m talking about.
By the way, I hope you guys are busier than I have been. I need to get a new seo’er for my new site.
The configuration noted in the photos is also technically a cross connection with potable water potentially in contact with non potable water. This is a common condition for water softener discharge lines terminating into a drain line without an air gap. I would call out the potential cross connection as well as the non professional workmanship.
