    I currently have condensate entering my HVAC secondary drain line even though my primary drain line is not clogged. The HVAC unit itself is balanced, so condensate is flowing to the primary drain port, but the water is leaking from the unit into the secondary catch pan prior to entering the...

    The drain line for my AC exits the house about 3 inches off the ground. During the hot summers here in Texas, it's putting out at least 10 gallons a day into the yard. I would like to devise a system to pump this water into a rain barrel next to the drain line. I've googled and googled and been...

    The condensate tray/pan on my Goodman heatpump (package unit) isn't draining until the blower shuts off. Then it drains a fair amount (more than a cup) in less than 30 seconds. I've checked the P-trap - no air is being pulled in through it. It's also completely clean and nothing is obstructing...

    Central Heating and Air located in attic I have had water dripping out of the secondary condensate drain all over a window since I have owned the house (6 years) and I finally decided to do something about it. The first A/C guy I called hooked up a vacuum to the primary drain outside the house...

    Hey everyone, This picture pretty much says it all. I bought this house a few years ago and I Ignored this problem until painting the exterior and figured this has to be dealt with. This drain has been chipped over the years, and started dripping into the block. Over time, it seems like the...

    I have an Armstrong HE A93UH gas furnace installed in August 2013 and it had intermittent problems starting the 1st winter(it was fine until then); the inducer came on and tried/hummed for a while then shut off. Not sure if it's related; the 1st time it happened was when I turned up the temp on...

    I just had the head of a ductless mini-split unit switched from a condensate pump over to a through the wall run to a nearby washer/dryer stack and I am not really pleased with the work. This is probably my favorite part. I really like how they notched the studs of my load bearing wall instead...

    Hi everyone, my AC is a split system, attic/outside. The attic portion's condensate line is plumbed into the sink drain in the bathroom. This is how it was setup when the house was built and has always worked before, unless the drains below were clogged. There is also a pan under the unit in...

    I have a Triangle Tube Prestige Solo 250 wall-mounted boiler for indirect hot water and baseboard heating. This is a condensing boiler and has a drain line that passes through the wall of the equipment room to the outdoors. Today I went into my equipment room and found that the drain line was...

    Recently, the caulk/putty/whatever around this PVC piece (name: unknown) attached to my furnace developed two gaping holes on the underside (not shown), causing all condensed water to drain onto my basement floor instead of going through the PVC pipe to the condensate pump. I've plugged up the...

    Hi all, I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend. We had a couple of beautiful days here in Massachusetts, which I think led to the problem I discovered this morning in the basement... :( I ran the A/C unit all weekend, usually set between 68 and 70, but I noticed a lot of ice formed on...

    I have a 4" drain that goes into the concrete basement floor. About one foot off the floor is a cleanout. I would like a/c condensate to drain into this pipe, but I would need to tap the pipe right at the floor line in order for gravity to work in the condensate line. Is it feasible to tap...

    Hi, I have a Carrier Weathermaker 9300 TS furnace with a Little Giant 115V condensate pump attached to the side that appears to not be working correctly. The problem started a week or so ago - normally, the reservoir attached to the pump fills up, it flips on, empties out, and turns off...

    The ac coil in my attic air handling unit in dripping down onto the filter flooding the bottom of my box. The condensate is not following the angle mounted coil to the catch pan. Last fall I re-piped the condensate line to ensure proper p-trap per the installation manual. Coil has been...

    I have a Luxaire AC unit in the attic and repeatedly have had the condensate pan fill up, which triggers the safety float and stops the unit from running. We've rarely even used AC this year because we've had a cool summer in the NE. I previously paid a repairman to fix this issue and evidently...

    Fellow DIY's: I have an 18 yr old Luxaire PBNU-LD10P060A HiEff LP furnace that started acting up this winter. The local serviceman has not been able to fix. I think that 3R (Ventor Fan Relay) has a bad/intermittent coil and I have ordered a replacement. I have a question for you experts out...
