clogged drain lines
I'm trying to find a pump to pump the water out of a drain pan under the air handler when the drain pan don't have a drain line. I'm looking for a pump to pump the water through the main drain line after the clog is cleared. I'm tired of toting a shop vac filled with water out of an attic . If only a secondary drain had of been installed life would have been much easier. Anyone know of a good pump for this?
I use this:
They are $7 at harbor freight. They last about 3 months and work great to pump from an emergency pan into the main drain (that you already unclogged)
I use my lips and syphon it out, figure my lips have touched worse lol. The pump looks good though, got one for the boat!

It's kinda expensive but we'll worth the money. Clears a full drain pan in about a minute.

Looks like you'll be pumping for about a half hour with this set up

I got a call about an hour ago. The drain pan in a cooler is freezing.
The drain is clear. When it defrosts (time clock) it blows water all over.
This unit has worked flawless for over 15 years. Energy guy changed the
evap fans. 2 speed ecm, I think. Short of a heat tape in the pan, any ideas.
I don't have to be there till 8: tomorrow morning.
that drives me nuts. a always like to install a wet switch (hockey puck)
Yea but it a walk in in a restaurant loaded with food.
I usually just keep my wet vac running outside & cut the main drain near the pan in the attic. With a couple of 90's & a piece of pipe I can suck all the water out of the pan & couple the line back in no time.
An engineer designs what he would never work on.
A technician works on what he would never design.
I think either remove the ec evap motors or heat tape. Maybe angle the dain or put in a bigger pipe.
I will know in several hours.
My doubts are strong on it having a cleared drain.

Make sure the ecm's are producing the proper amount of airflow through the coil
