Condensate Pump: DIY or get a professional?


I've got a dead condensate pump for my gas furnace and was just wondering if it's a job I can do myself or with a friend, or something I need a professional for. It looks pretty straightforward to me, but I don't want to go out and buy one and completely screw up the installation.

Easy as pie, or do I need to call someone in? It's not covered under any sort of service plan I have which is why I'm considering the DIY.

shape or size doesn't mater as long as it is 115V catch the drain from the unit(usually straight drop of PVC or rapped over and hits the hole to the tank...and then a radiator clamp ties the clear plastic onto the barbed slip to discharge it check the plastic out for a no crimps. check out your local www.grainger.com supply house they welcome DIYrs..the biggest thing to kept right is the tank size of the old one to new one.
