A lot water on the drain panel


What do you guys use to remove the water inside of the drain panel?

1- Water pump
2- Wet vac
3- Scoop it out with a cup

I'm thinking about getting a small water pump....any thoughts

I give up....what is a drain panel? What is it on? What is it for? Pretty vague description. If I assume it's a drain for a cooling coil it should have it's own drain.

You could be right about that. But it's unlikely you will get any answers until you clarify exactly what it is you are talking about...anyway, good luck

is this the pan under the air handler shouldn't have water in it what going on with the one inside the unit.then run a PVC line out from the emergency pan to a stoop or back yard so they see water running when it over flows....and the emergency PVC is totally seperate from the uit drain line

2 gallons taken out of the pan will get any drain pan drained low enough for the float switch to let the A/C run again. 120 degree attics will evaporate the rest of the water in a day or 2.

My tool bag weighs more. So no real worry about spilling water. plus, you can get the crap out of the trap that clogged it up in the first place.

I know that. The A-coil is cracked. The water is going straight to the drain pan instead of primary drain line. The secondary drain pan doesn't have drain line....but the flow safety switch saved for water damage.

The A-coil will be replaced.
