Drain Hose


Can someone give me a suggestion about what to do with this? It's the drain hose from my hvac unit. I've ran over it enough times pulling into my car into the garage, that it has finally cracked and leaking water, not a lot, but the usual amount you would get I guess. Does Lowes or Home Depot sell something for this, or does someone have another idea.

Drain Hose


Why not just run it out the back wall?
That's a really tiny hose for a condinsate drain.

It's a cut garden hose that just drips after it quits running.

And if I could, I would run it somewhere else, but that is the closest and most convienent place to run it.

Drain Hose


I'm just a simple homeowner that is looking for something easy. No pumps, no new hoses to the back of the house, not breaking concrete so I can bury the line, ect. I'm looking for something I can install myself that other people may have done in my situation, keep the hose where it's at, and be able to drive over it without it cracking or breaking anyworse.

I'd say use a higher quality garden hose if that's all you're wanting to do. Nothing else will stand up to repeatedly being run over.

Drain Hose


Looks like a piece of cheap garden hose. Lowes and HD both sell low grade low priced garden hoses.

take a 2x4 or 2x6. cut a bevel on each side of the top. on the bottom cut a groove that will fit around the pipe. replace hose with a new piece.
