    sweaty condensate pump

    I have a Fujitsu minisplit air handler in an attic hooked to a condensate pump and the pan sweats really bad even after insulating it with over 1 inch of rubbertex type insulation applied. The condensate that comes out of thease type systems is about 15 degrees cooler than traditional air handlers.

    Any recomendations?

    better insulation is the only thing that will work. Ridgid Foam?

    Yeah, i uswd the sheeted insulation that is black and is 3/4 thick. roughened up the outside of the pump so the adhesive would have something more to grab. Glued it, then used foam tape on the outside to make it a more tight fit. Im tempted to just run some 1'' PVC. I hate attics.

    I had one that would do that, I used 1' armaflex sheet, and glued it on with duct liner adhesive, you need to make sure that all the surface is air tight though, and it worked very good
