Air gaps are important but can cause headaches
When you install a water softener with a floor drain, an air gap for the discharge line is a important part of the job. The air gap keeps drinking water and waste or sewer water separate. More to the point: The air gap prevents the water softener's discharge water from contaminating your fresh water supply. This is why all water softener manufacturers recommend an air gap.

Until now, you needed to fabricate an air gap when using the floor drain for softener discharge. Hose clamps, copper straps, L brackets bending this way and that and electrical tape. You know what I'm talking about.
Unfortunately, this is where even the most conscientious, well-intentioned installers can despair.

Not only does fabricating an air gap add 10-15 minutes to your install job (assuming you have the parts with you), the end result is often lacking.

  • If it's mounted on a floor drain, it's eventually going to be stepped on, kicked or otherwise dislodged.
  • A mish-mash of tube and pipe, it looks haphazard and unprofessional.
  • Worse still, the softener discharge tube may become dislodged from the floor drain and cause flooding.
    Now, for the good news: You can meet manufacturer air gap recommendations and give your install a clean, professional look with the Handy GaP water softener air gap.
