    how high above drain outlet is coil?

    as long as there isn't another trap & coil is higher than sink-good to go.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Is there a condensate pump to push water across the floor and up to the sink, or is that the water supply to the faucet?

    EDIT: I see, it all works by gravity if the coil is high enough.

    I didn't look for another trap. Coil was probably about a foot above the drain outlet. That's crazy I never thought of it that way but I guess that would be one big @$$ trap.

    Yup, big a$$ trap. In a blow through coil it should work.

    I'm not sure if that's wall of fame or shame... I mean if that's what the customer wanted price wise, and it works without leaking....

    Looks good and probably works well. but it is one heck of a trip hazard! Why not mount a pump near unit and go up and over to sink? Too stingy?

    Well I guess I learned something new today and looked like an idiot in the process lol. I see how that would work after thinking about it. I've never seen anything like that before.
