Drain pipe under eaves on second story

The pipe drains lots of water, which I guess in itself is ok. but the draining is constantly hitting the eves and the lower roof, which is becoming constantly wet. Is there a coupling or an addition that can be hooked on to the pipe to divert the water?

Thanks

Yes. You can buy couplings, elbows and pipes at a hardware store and divert the water precisely where you want it to go. Hope this helps.

Condensate not draining


In this case check your drain pipe is ok, it is not damaged or check the pipe should be in slant position so that water can flow out easily.

Water is coming out the front of our window air conditioner. it drips constantly. the air conditioner cools great. when you turn the air conditioner off, the water just pours out the front of the air...


This can be caused by the drain hole in the drain pan (under the unit) is clogged or the unit does not have enough rear downward tilt to allow the water to flow to the rear of the pan and out thru the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear of the unit.

The drain hole can be hard to find, sometimes. As the clog will blend in with the hole. Persistence and patience help a lot in searching for it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

Hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Weather King AC/Furnace in the attic that's dripping water into the drain pan. When we purchased our new house it came with this unit and it never dripped ater. Now, the water is dripping towards...


I assume it is dripping water when the AC is running. If you look at the attic unit, there should be a PVC pipe running from the unit - probably an insulated PVC pipe. This pipe probably goes across the attic to the edge of the house and drains outside. The drain pan may also have a drain pipe, but the one on the AC unit is the issue, and is probably plugged. Go outside and see if you can locate the AC drain pipe. See if the ground is wet below the pipe and if water is steadily dripping from the pipe (with AC running). If the pipe and ground are dry, the pipe is plugged. If you have a wet/dry vac, try connecting it to the drain pipe outside to see if you can **** the pluggage out. If you can get it clear, water should start dripping out of the pipe. This same thing happened at our house. I decided to cut the pipe in the attic, and add in a PVC isolation valve, tee, and water hose connection with plug, so I can valve out the AC unit from the pipe, remove hose connection plug, and hook up a water hose and flush the line to outside. Lowe's sells all of the PVC pipe fittings. The water pressure from the hose will always flush out the algae and crud to the outside of the house. I can also remove the plug and pour a cup of bleach down the drain pipe every couple of months to keep algae growth in check. I also cut out the trap (u-leg) from pipe in the attic and purchased a ready made trap a Lowes (the contractor who built our house had made a lousy homemade trap). I purchased a few PVC elbows and installed the trap on the drain pipe outside. By the way, our AC drain pipe comes out of our wall outside and drains near our outside unit. Our secondary drain pan drain pipe comes out outside from an eave on the side of the house. I don't know what you drain line looks like (it may have a port to add bleach, or some cleanout provisions, maybe not). If you choose to modify/improve it, then make a sketch of it, go to Lowe's and get the PVC parts you need + PVC pipe primer and cement. PVC cement dries fast. Remember, the pipe must flow downhill from you AC attic unit. You can use a regular wood saw to cut the pipe. I hope this helps you. You need to keep the drain line clear as algae will continue to grow in it. Pouring bleach in the line every month or two helps. You also need to check maybe once a month that the line is draining properly (check to see if dripping outside). You can get some serious water damage to your ceilings if the water backs up and overflows. I discovered that our drain line was plugged just in time as our drain pan drain line was also partially plugged and drain pan was about to overflow.

I have a lot of water splashing out on the left side of my LG LWHD1800R, and am not seeing any drain from the drain pipe. How can I stop so much water splash from the side vent?


There isn't a drain persay the drain is the holes under the a/c in the window sleeve. There could be a blockage in the drain pain on the a/c itself. This is the pan the coil at the front of the a/c issitting in. The best way to clean this is to remover the unit from the wall sleeve and take it where you can rinse the bottom of the a/c out make sure to clean the area where the coil sits. Do not wet the entire unit only the area where the steyrene at the base of the coil. Also it the wall sleeve is a complete wrap around make sure you clean it also.

Good luck on your repairs

Excessive water dripping from Central A/C drian line


sounds like the overflow drain is picking up the water that means the main drain is clogged.you need to find the main drain pipe if lookin at the air handler in attic there should be 2 drains from unit one higher than other follow it and blow out drain they put the other overflow drain out the eve so if it stars leaking someone notices it and it doesnt damage cieling but it sound like it needs imediate attention befor it does go to the overflow pan and damage your cieling. i hope this helps and good luck

How do you drain the overflow tray?


A wet/dry shop vac is the easiest way. you will want to make sure the drain line is unclogged so it will not just fill right back up again.

if water is in the overflow, that means the main line is clogged and the main pan is full. both will need to be cleared.

You can use a shop vac for all of that.

Dripping water from the pvc drain pipes of 2nd story eaves.


yes, that is your emergency drain pipe. You need to have the a/c drained cleaned out. It is probably jammed up with algea. A professional should be called to blow it out. or get ahold of your Mr. Fixit buddy. If you leave it like this your drain pan will eventually rust out and cause major interior damage to your home.
