I'm looking to install a water softener in my home that's a new construction purchased this year. I plan to install the water softener in the garage and it doesn't have a drain line. I am unable to drain it from the water heater drain line as it just runs out the side of the house straight into the grass. The best idea I have right now other than hiring a plumber to connect into the sewer main on the side of the house is to run the discharge up the attic into the utility room which is about 5 feet up, 5-10 feet across, then down and connect it to the washing machine standpipe. However upon inspection I realized that the AC condensation line also drips into the washing machine. My original idea was to install both discharges with a air gap fitting but I am not sure if that is still possible. Here are some images if that helps. Any insight would be appreciated, thank you!
