Connecting to the Drains
The condensate water drains from the tray through a 1 1/4” flexible tube fitted in the unit.
If the unit is fitted with a humidifier, the condensate drain tray and the humidifier drain connection must
be connected to the drains of the building.
Connecting to building drains (without humidifier)


1. Connect the unit drainage tube to the building drains using a rubber or plastic tube with an internal diameter of 1” (25 mm).
2. Use a trap on the external drainage tube in order to avoid unpleasant odors and to allow the condensate pan to drain properly. Consult local building codes for drain requirements.
Caution: The installation must comply with local plumbing codes.
3. Once the connections have been made, pour water into the condensate drain until the trap inside the unit is full.

Connecting to building drains (with humidifier)
Warning: The water discharged from the humidifier is at a very high temperature. The drainage tube has to withstand high temperatures (at least 212°F) and must be kept away from electrical cables.
1. Connect the unit drainage tube to the humidifier collection tray.
2. Connect the humidifier drainage tube to the building drains using a rubber or plastic tube, which is resistant to high temperatures minimum (212°F) with an internal diameter of 1.26”.



3. Use a trap on the external drainage tube to avoid unpleasant odors and water overflow from the humidifier tray. Consult local building codes for drain requirements.
4. Connect humidifier to 3/4” hose bib connection.
5. Once the connections have been made, pour water into the unit condensate collection tray and in the humidifier condensate collection tray until both traps are full.
