Air conditioner is leaking
Air conditioner is leaking. We placed a tray underneath to catch all the water, and water even comes up from underneath the carpet. We've had this problem before and the repairman will blow out the drain line, it works for a while but it always stops back up and leaks again.

Any ideas what's wrong and what the long term solution would be.

Blow out drain line. And then pour alittle simple green in the line once a month.

Bleach works well also.

What about drain cleaner?

I try to stay away from both bleach, and drain cleaners.

Fumes from either aren't the best thing for the coil.
