Hi all,

Have what I thought was a fairly conventional air gap on the discharge of my Kinetico water softener.

It has sprayed and dripped a slight amount for the last 10 years. Was no problem when the basement was unfinished to have a 5 gallon bucket underneath it to catch any drips.

We are in the process of finishing this portion of the basement. While it will be above a drop ceiling, I'd like to ensure I can get it to stop dripping when the softener regenerates.

Any ideas from looking at my pictures?

Thanks!

For some reason I think there's an air gap fitting website. Air Gap fitting.com or something. But other than finding a different air gap fitting, possibly one spec'd for a larger flow rate there's not much, other than putting a pan under it, you can do.

Thanks for the link. I believe the air gap I have installed is the ET115 listed on the page linked.
