    No Drain for Water Softner

    We our renovating a bathroom that didn't originally have a shower in it. Now that we've moved everything (including putting down new flooring), we decided that it needed a water softener and there's not a drain. Do you all have a solution for that or alternatives? Thanks for any advice.
