Question-- I have about a 25-30 year old tri-level home. The lower level has a bathroom which includes sink, tub/shower, and washer. It drains into sewer through my crawl space (same level, right next door). I have a lay-down furnace on which I just had installed an automatic humidifier.

Near where the drainage from the lower level comes into the crawl space, there is a wet vent drain. Can the wet vent drain "handle" the water which flows through the automatic humidifier--about one gallon per hour according to April Aire (mfg.)??

That's my question . . .

Thank you!

OK, it is never a good idea to drain a humidifier into a sewage line of any kind,..but to answer you Q: your vent and or main line should have no problem handling the GPH you described. Any connection to a sewage line has to be trapped as to not allow the smell to come back into the humidifier.
If your humidifier has a resivour to hold the water, your ok. If it's a flow though, your still OK but watch the smell.....!!!!! Give the Model # and I can give you more Info.
