Thanks for your response.
We are out in rural MS, so we are not subject to code inspections or anything like that. Nevertheless, I would obviously like to do this so as to avoid future problems and ensure the safety of those using the ice it makes.
So, I could basically come out of the back of the machine with the necessary plumbing to an air gap ....below the air gap would be pipe that leads directly outside and empties behind the building? Do you have anything special on the pipe that empties outdoors? Have you had any problems thus far with your arrangement? Thanks again.
