fix broken condensation line connection


Hi -

I have a lennox furnace I am troubleshooting currently. One of the condensation line connections has broken (see pics) and the metal washer will no longer seal, meaning the water drips down onto the floor instead of into the supplied hose.

What suggestions are there for sealing this? Just get a larger washer? (either metal or rubber) Some sort of sealant? Never dealt with anything furnace related before and certainly not going to make a service call on a holiday.

One pic shows the broken connection from the inside, one shows the connection on the other side (unbroken) and one pic shows the connection from the underside/outside.

Thanks for any help offered.

I would think you could get some kind of fitting from a hardware store. You could also clean it good and epoxy it.

Thats kind of what I was thinking so I just got some larger rubber washers and some silicone sealant for outdoor use and I'm going to see how it holds up.

Clean it well and dry it with a hair dryer and then use bathtub silicone and let it cure for several hours B4 getting it wet again. Ideally 12 hours.
