A: Evaporating capacity on the Excel NE is variable, so the 1" drain at the rear should be connected to an approved drain pit, container, or other facility. A 10 foot 1" drain hose and stainless steel hose clamp is supplied with all non-electric units (including the Excel NE). Collect and/or treat excess liquid in an approved facility such as a recycling bed, holding tank or drain pit. To make a recycling bed to evaporate and transpirate the liquid without touching the environment, simply dig a bed 18" deep, and line it with plastic sheet. Bed size - normally 3-25 square feet - varies with geographic area and season. Fill it with 6" of gravel then 12" of sand and a plant with grass and shrubs.
