Question about Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner
The water is condensate, which is produced by the air conditioner (this normal), The hole you are refering to shoule be connected to a drain, and should have a "p" trap installed to allow proper drainage and prevent sewer smells from backing up into the air handler. The pan underneath it should be a secondary catch incase there is a problem with the primary drain (the hole from the unit). the secondary catch should also be equipped with either a drain to allow the water to escape, or a moisture sensor to shut-down the air conditioner, and alert the homeowner to the problem, by way of the house getting warmer. The fact that you describe it as simply a hole draining into the secondary pan tells me that this unit is not installed properly. I suggest calling the installing contractor to remedy the situation, before costly ceiling repairs are required.
