Where can I drain my condensate line?

The final place to drain your condensate line is the drain line access point. The access point is most often located inside the home near the indoor air conditioner unit. This access point will also be covered with a PVC cap. Pour hot water or vinegar into the access point to flush the drain line from the inside.

Can I run condensate line outside?

But that’s not necessarily the case! A furnace produces condensate as it works (it’s part of the combustion process), and this condensate must be drained and removed to the outside. If the pipe that runs the condensate to the outside of the house freezes over, your furnace won’t be able to work!

Can condensate drain to ground?

Both air conditioning condensate and refrigeration condensate are on the list of allowable discharges, provided that such water is distilled pure water taken from the atmosphere. However, any cleaning water or washwater can not be discharged to the ground, but must be captured for disposal in the sanitary sewer system.

Does a condensate drain need a vent?

no vent. per se, is required on the condensate line itself, unlike sanitary drains, which must be vented to prevent siphonage at the traps and possible collaspe of the sewer pipe due to possible negative pressures created when no vent is present.

What is the proper termination for the primary condensate drain line?

The most popular areas we terminate condensate drain lines to is the side of the house and usually about six inches from the ground. And this can be in a planted area that is large enough to accept the amount of drainage, and soak down into the earth.
