washer drain siphon effect
Posted by FRED on August 08, 2002 at 17:45:28:
Kenmore stacked washer/dryer....Have installed on main floor...want to drain into existing stand pipe in basement....have installed "siphon break" as per user manual instructions re: floor drain.Problem....the siphon still happens i.e. fill water continually drains out.This happens after the first load.Questions1.Does the line need to completely empty?(it won't because of the trap in the stand pipe)2. Is the location of the siphon break in the drain line important?.3Should I give up & install a main floor stand pipe?
