I got to watch water pouring from the condenser pan through the furnace and
the air filter.
Since the drain connects directly to a waste line, there is no problem with
insects, instead it was the fine quality of the plumbing. Whoever installed
it did a very nice job with a number of elbows. I cut out nearly four feet
of piping and found each of the elbows choked with sediment (years of
accumulated fine Oklahoma sand). I replumbed it as a straight line from the
pan drain to the two elbows that connect it to the waste line, a single T
connector to the piping coming off the heater safety valve, and a connector
that will allow the line to be opened for a plumber's snake. Not elegant,
but less likely to clog and easier to clear.
The date got written down wrong, so the manchet demo is a week from today,
making life a little easier.
