I thought I originally tested it "hard" but you're right I have a TH < 100. I just setted it to 3 (hope this is the right way)

thanks for noticing !

Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Are you saying the 5/8 ID is too narrow to drain quickly?

I just ordered my Sync and evaluating how to best plumb it. Draining seems to be a bit trickier than getting water to the machine. I found an adapter to connect the drain tube to my dishwasher:garbage disposal drain.

Well I guess it depends on your setup but for me it was not draining properly. Small ID and poor slope was making it almost impossible to drain to the back of my countertop and then all the way to my p-trap.

Maybe another Synchronika owner could chime in ..

I just sent your design to my library for 3d printing. Thank you.

I'm going to do your exact set up, but with the Clive softer.

One question, is your drain line a 1" ID to a 1.5" drain adaptor?

Exactly, this is a 1.5 drain with a screw connection to another barbed hose screwed adapter 1" ID

Awesome thanks. I've been trying to figure this out for the past couple of weeks. Very helpful!

From the picture, it looks like you tapped in to the main sink drain line vent stack. Is that right?

No, P-Trap, see previous post :

Ok, so i see you built a p trap going in to the main sink drain line?

Did you leave some slack to be able to move the machine for cleaning underneath?

Maybe I missed it, but what is the hole diameter you drilled in the counter top? You left a nice amount of room for both lines without going too big.

Good question. I'm guessing it's a 2" hole.
