The condensation from my main AC drip pipe is not draining away from the unit. As a result, I been constantly finding it backing up into the pipe.
As a temporary solution, you can see from the picture that I dug out a hole below the pipe to allow the condensation to collect below the pipe while it slowly drains into the North Carolina clay.
What would someone recommend as a permanent fix? I am thinking of putting in a french drain - go down about 1 foot, out about 4 feet, fill it with gravel and then cover the gravel backup with grass (so you don't see it). I hope this will allow the water to drain away from the unit through the gravel.
Is this the right approach? Does anybody have any other ideas?
Thanks for your advice.
