Furnace


Have Lennox furnace two stage system. Had heating and ac service in to check on furnace problem. Discovered that pressure switch hose filled with water not allowing burners to stay on. Guy drain the hose but still filling with water, was told it was condensation, water should drain through the PVC drain pipe leading to drain. Why is so much water building up and getting in hose of pressure switch?

Did he check to see if the condensate path wasn't clogged? Water will find a secondary path if the primary one is blocked.
When the service guy was there, any reason he didn't actually fix the issue?
