    New use for washing machine hoses...WTF

    A buddy sent these from one he found today. The equipment brand is one from a local "Sells to public" supply house and the install wreaks DIY.

    Is that just one hose cut into two? Saves money that way! So much for the total use of the inside diameter of the drain connection.

    Wow. Since it looks to be on the negative side of the blower, has a tiny return plenum, and lacking a p-trap....
    Looks like it's gonna retain and overflow condensate!

    That's why they got that washing machine drip pan under it, ready to catch the water!

    hoses stay submerged in slime at the bottom of the pump so it doesn't need a trap
    You can't fix stupid

    In operation, if you can call it that. The pan was loading with condensate water, it would spill out, cust would shut the system down for a while and the water would drain off the pan and go into the pump. After a while they would turn the system back on and being on the neg side of the blower, those hoses would suck the pump dry and the water went back into the pan. That unbelievable hack of a return boot had SO MUCH velocity, (2.5T AH and blower wired in high gear) that the condensate water actually defied gravity, (so much for Sir Isaac Newton) and it would climb to the top of the coil and fly off into the blower, which then proceeded to throw it out into the room through the single 10" round smokepipe supply vent.

    I just wish my buddy took pics with something other than a cell phone. I would love to see this one complete in all it's glory.
