Hi,
There will be a drain at the lower end of the unit, this should be connected to suitable piping and taken outside. Condensate drain soakaways are available if no suitable drain is available for it to discharge into. Try to use rigid plastic piping where possible.

Why does my water smell like mildew?


There may be algae contamination of the system. Disconnect the water supply and run in a mixture of 2 tsp of Baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda) in 1 cup of water through the line, from tap connector to dispenser. Leave the solution sitting in the lines for 1/2 hour prior to flushing with clean water and removing any ice made with the solution. Bicarbonate of soda is great for destroying cell walls of plants and fungi (algae, mold etc) and removing smells.

White vinegar is also hostile to algae, and doesn't leave a lingering smell, but bleach should be avoided, or used very sparingly, in systems used to supply water for consumption by people or pets.

Algae dust in pool


I think Brandon's answer deserves a little more time and a slight explanation... as I think it is Spot On!
Algae dust is usually "Already DEAD" algae!
And normally it is way to Small & Fine to be trapped by the filter.
We here on this forum do not know what type of filter you have, But if you do have a "MultiPort" valve as Brandon suggested you turn to the "Waste" mode, you will not use the filter mode to vacuum, as this will only BLOW the Fine Silt like substance right back into your pool, spreading out into the water to be suspended turning your water cloudy if not green, until it settles, and once again you have a covering of Dead Algae Dust on the floor of your pool. But when the filter valve is in Waste mode, you will bypass the filter and the return line altogether and your vacuumed algae silt will be sucked up into the valve, and OUT the valve to waste. And just like that all of the algae dust is vacuumed out and did not Blow back into your pool.
I just had a situation where we cleaned up such a pool where the customer couldn't get the algae out, we came out and vacuumed to waste. And I by chance took a picture of the partially vacuumed pool and Dust remaining.

algae-dust-in-pool-iwrnrkacomuoeuyhvucmvd0t-2-0.jpg If you don't have a multipart valve, then if the pool has no debris but only dust, then and ONLY then, should you use Backwash mode. You NEVER want to vacuum a pool with debris in Backwash mode! NEVER!!! Because the larger debris you are vacuuming will get caught in the internals of your lateral drain assembly or your DE Grids. then it will be very difficult to un clog them, which in turn will reduce proper water filtration efficiency! But the algae dust will be able to pass right on thru. If you have neither of these types of filters because you have a Cartridge style filer, the elements may be able to trap the dust, if it is still to fine to filter, you obtain an additional pool pump, place it pool side, and in the pump out the pump will be two vacuum hoses and away you go.

Good Luck

My window air conditioner is leaking a jelly like substance from the outside.


Is this jelly oily by any chance? if it's not it could simply be the build up of algae/fungus and its coming from your condensate line which is pretty normal.

Hi I have ab 18x52' intex above ground pool with klear saltwater system, but I have algae in the bottom of the pool, please tell what to do to clean it without emptying the pool, and can i use any...


Get ready for a full weekend of cleaning your pool :) This is the chemical free method...
1st... Start with a clean filter...So clean your filter...
2nd.. Vacuum your pool and get most of the algae up from the bottom and sides.. Go slow so you do not stir up the algae. Make sure you use the vacuum attachment with brushes..
3rd..Clean your filter...
4th...repeat step 2 again...
5th... Clean your filter...
6th... Brush your pool with a pool brush to loosen the remaining algae..
7th... Set your pump timer for 12 hrs and your chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hrs... and run for 3 days...
8th.. Check your water and see if has cleared and the algae is almost completely gone.. If so, check your free chlorine level and adjust your cycle down if at the required level..
9th.. if your chlorine level is not at optimal, run at the 12 hr cycle for 3 more days and check..
10th.. After water is clear and free of algae, clean your filter and adjust your cycle down to control your free chlorine level...
Good luck and hope this method works for you.. It has for me for over 2 years with my Intex Salt Water system...
Please take the time to rate me and write a comment... really appreciate!!!

We changed our pool over to salt water four days ago ago and it is cloudy and has green algae in it. It had green algae when we switched. We thought the salt water system would kill it, but it is still...


You don't mention the size of the pool. If this is a above ground small pool ... dump the water, clean the liner and refill it. Remove the metal with a sequestering agent. Get the alkalinity correct. Get the pH correct then add the salt to 3200 ppm.

Chlorine kills algae. Are you sure it is algae and not metal in the water?

pH should be 7.2 to 7.6. Alkalinity should be 100. If a gunnite pool, the calcium should be 300. Salt should be 3200. Cyanuratic acid should be 50+ if this pool is outside (not indoors).

What to do. If this is a big pool, and you are sure this is not metal in the water, I would super chlorinate the pool - take it to 20 or so ppm. Run the filter for at least 24 hours. Watch the pressure ... you will be filtering out a lot of stuff.

Let me know what happens ...

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Drain the pool get in and TOTALLY scrub all of the fungus & algae off with bleach, (Or it WILL come back quicker) then treat areas with algae killer, and then rinse out all gunk, clean spotlessly, and then refill, and from then on, make sure you use a commercial algae preventative, also up the refresh rate of water exchange.

Water coming out of my top vents......


Go outside and see if you can spot a plug up in the drain tube. Some insects will build nests inside the proper size tube and plug it up so that condensation generated by normal operation is not allowed to drain from the unit. Other times, fungus or algae will cause the plug up.

Your plug up may be internal to the machine as well. This might be relieved by swabing out the plug up from outside by means of a fine flexible cable or weed wacker line - be careful!! Drain lines are often hidden very well requiring great detective skills.

Water is pooling inside the a/c instead of dripping outside.


Sometimes those window units are not very easy to install. If you installed it so it tilts to the outside and a quarter inch per foot then you might need to drill a hole or two in the back to let it drain. I have had to do that before. Just look at it and use your best sense. Also make sure that you do not hit the copper coil or any of the components. Your doing great.

Air conditioner leaking


Hi, There are no pipes, just passage ways on a window unit. It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped. kstfas
