Yep just add that to the list of differences between the south with heatpumps and the north with furnace/ac's. We have to put an access in.(T with cap) The ac will be off for over 6 months and the traps dry out in the fall/winter. We need to fill them with the spring clean and check or "no good." Learned your vac trick from a guy in Sarasota, FL over 10 yrs ago. Still hasn't really caught on around here!?! Go figure.

We don't use tee's, they are useless, bleach doesn't do a whole lot, we just hook a good wet vac outside and let her rip, cleans it all. 98% of what we do is heat pumps.
