    Clog in AC Unit / Emergency overflow pan?

    Hello, i have two problems, My Ac unit in my attic will not drain properly due to a clog in the 90 of the pvc pipe comming out of the unit(can't reach in to cut pvc). i was told to blow compressed air into the outlet(drain side, outside unit), but don't want it going farther into the unit.
    since its plugged the water is comming out of the corner of the unit in to the overflow pan..

    Also where can i get a emergency overflow panim in Dallas TX, for anyone in the area.
    i found a bigger pan but i'd like the same size as what is on it.

    it is 25" x 54"

    all i can find is 30" x 60"

    thank you in advance for any help

    Cool

    It Would Be Cheap to call an air Conditioning company for service.

    Call an hvac company becuase there are products out there that are not sold in a diy store that they can get that will help you as a home owner take care of your investment. As far as blowing compressed air into the the drain you could actually cause a bigger problem that you really want to deal with.

    i know im new, but what good is a General "Discussion" Forum, if all you do is tell people to call a AC guy out, thats all i seee here, got a problem? ok call someone else. A Discussion Forum should be all about DIY!

    No.

    This is NOT a DIY site.

    So it should not have a discussion of how to DIY.

    Read site rules.

    Call a HVAC contractor and he can make an size pan that you need. He can put the outlet where it can be cut or taken apart and cleaned out when necessary. Don't get upset-we will give you information that will help. BUT NO DIY.

    It is where HO can ask question about their systems. Not tell me how to fix it.

    Your thought of get a bigger pan is like fixing a leak in the roof by getting a bigger bucket.

    Condensate line done wrong can cause $100 if not $1000 of damage.


    Good luck
