In response to Re: pressure relief drain?
: We have a finished basement with a well pressure tank and a hot water tank. Both tanks have the required "relief" valves. My question is, can they be drained directly into the 3" waste line to the septic tank? The way they are terminated now (12" above floor) if they ever "BLEW" there would be a lot of water going all over the floor,even with a floor drain close by.Could we just pipe these to the drain line, and eliminate any flooding concerns? thanks for any reply. Don


No.
No line that is carrying discharge under pressure can be directly connected to any part of the drainage system.
