 Water Softener - 2nd floor drain
Author: DSNevada (NV)

Good afternoon.

Seeking advice as I'm looking to have a water softener installed for a 2-story townhouse. The townhouse is equipped with a water loop, which is located on the bottom floor in the garage. There is a drain pipe, which is located above the water loop pipe and runs to the 2nd floor laundry room, which is approx. 14 feet up and 15 feet across. I've been told most water softener systems are not designed to push drain water past 8 feet vertically, which will be challenging if that is in fact the case...

Any recommendations / suggestions are welcomed on make / model of systems that would work in these conditions.

Thank you for your time!
