condensation drain tube prablem


This morning we discovered a leak in the basement and traced it to a hole in the plastic condensation drain tube (it looks like a critter knawed its way through the plastic). As a short-term fix, we're thinking of wrapping the damaged section of tubing with duct tape. We're in Atlanta and don't need to keep the HVAC system on right now because the temperature is in the high 60s and 70s. Does anyone have cautions about the safety of using duct tape for a few days?

Duct tape will work the tubing is likely 3/8 or you could get a coupling slice the tube and install that
