Furnace AC drain mess


Hi there. Does anyone have any suggestions to clean up this mess. The picture shows the drain lines for my furnace, ac, and humidifier. The floor drain cover is rusty and corroded, the lines are dirty and not draped well and it just looks ugly.

I moved into this house 5 months ago and just getting to this.

Thanks in advance for any useful suggestions.

Thanks. I was thinking of just replacing the tubing and getting a new floor drain grate. Is there a better way?

Some where back say against the wall tie all 3 into 1 drain line run it over to the drain put an elbow on it. Notch your cover for the line, put a short nipple on the elbow so it drains below the cover.

Running it down inside the drain cover wont fly in a lot of places.
