I love my home. However, it keeps me on my toes.
I was watching a show with me wife and stepped outside on the raised porch. I heard water hitting the ground. I have a walk out basement and a 25 yr old h20 heater in the garage. I thought it was the the overflow pipe from the h20 basin out the side of the garage. It wasn't, I looked up and h2o was pouring out the sofit about 45 feet above the ground. I ran upstairs, turned off AC, moved daughter from bedroom, and climbed up in the attic. The upstairs furnace coil drain is blocked. The water luckily flowed into the pan and out of the evergency overflow. I have two issues with this set up.
#1 the overflow 3/4 PVC drain needs to run outside of the soffit, not dump onto it and drain through it. #2 the overfill shut off sensor needs to work as the AC pan is full to the top. It failed to kick on.
It's clear that the 3/4 PVC consinsate drain line is blocked. I'm on a septic and hesitant to pour bleach down the line. I'm going to drag my air compressor up into the attic and blow some compressed air through it tomorrow when Home Depot is open and I can get some pvc material as I need to cut the PVC.
Any ideas? Am I correct?
