I am installing an under the cabinet ice maker in my kitchen. I removed an old trash compactor that was inoperable and am reusing the space. I have the water line run through the cabinets from a shut off under the sink. My question is about the drain. I was planning on using a clear flexible 7/8" OD vinyl tubing down through the floor and out through the band joist and dumping into a flower bed. I will leave a loop in the tubing to act as a trap so that no insects crawl back into the ice maker. Is this acceptable or must I plumb this drain into my sewer? It would not be very hard to connect to a sewer drain line but I figured why waste potable water (melted ice) when it can be used for irrigation of the flower bed.
