backflow installation location

planning an install in central NH with a reduced pressure backflow. I would like to install it in the basement next to my mecahnical systems. I currently have two condensate pumps, one for my boiler and one for my air handler. these are self contained pumps where any water from the systems are collected and pumped out the side wall of the house. I supposed i could mount a pail under the RPZ and run a drain line to one of the condensate pumps. Any experience with this? It would be nice to not have to install the unit outside.

Indoor install locations are always specified with a floor drain, because there can be a failure mode that has the device spewing water with full force, and not just drips and squirts.
