    Good? Bad? I'm the guy with the gun.

    Ive seen funnels put on refrigeration drain pans because the stub broke off. They just silicone it around the hole and put it into an elbow.

    If the PVC is tied directly into a waist line I would assume that would be to prvent sewer water from backing up into the pan.

    No, it was originally stubbed out in copper with a hose bibb and had a garden hose attached to it. They removed the hose and jimmied this in to hard pipe it.
