RE: shower drain

My shower has no sump. The drain runs to a filter mounted on a pump. There is a switch in the shower to turn it on when using the shower and turn it off when not.

This seems to work fine and avoids any issues with overflowing sumps and failed float switches.

My AC is mounted high enough that the condensate is discharged directly overboard.

RE: shower drain

All great ideas but Peggy wins. I seem to remember a dedicated switch in the panel that supplied power to the original gray water tank. I also think I remember opting to run a constant battery wire to feed the new rig. This weekend I will locate the wire from the switch and make it the new feed wire. Nice little sign hanging from the shower head. Problem solved. Thanks all.
