    Angry How to set up a condisate drain on a Gibson furnace

    Im in a apartment building and installing a condesent drain, because I couldent go out the top of the unit which is factory with this unit I turned the purge sideways and the book says if you do that than the original drain is useless and you have to run a different way, the drain is going out the left side of the unit below the blower, how is the best way to run the drain, as far as I understand comeing off the purge I have to run a T on the 3in PVC drain then im kinda lost from there. The book dosent do a very good job explaining the best way to run the drain with the purge horizontal out the left side

    It sounds like you need some professional assistance, time to call a pro.

    Your install manual will show you all acceptable routings for your unit. If you don't see it, don't do it.

    call a pro. Gas appliances aren't something to mess around with.

    Last time look at a gibson book (last week) It shows how If you are kinda lost. then you need to put your tools away and call a pro. If it not done right you can hurt someone or do damage to the unit.
    CALL A PRO.
