Installing the Drain Saddle
The purpose of the drain saddle is to provide a drain connection for the Aquarius unit. Water can then flow from the unit’s drain line, into the drainpipe under the sink.
- First, choose a place to install the drain saddle, above the J or P trap in the drainpipe. It can be installed on either a horizontal or vertical pipe, although a horizontal pipe is better because it assures noise-free performance.
- When you’ve selected the spot, drill a 1/4″ or slightly smaller hole in the drainpipe. On horizontal pipes, drill into the top half of the pipe.
- Next, attach the saddle around the pipe with the bolts provided so that water can flow through the fitting into the hole you’ve drilled.
Tip: The elbow fitting can be removed to make it easier to position the saddle directly over the hole; just reinstall the fitting after the saddle has been tightened onto the pipe.
- Point the fitting toward the Aquarius unit.
