    "Roughly 90% of central-air service calls are related to water leaks."

    Although I applaud Soaker's creativity, I would have to say that less than 1% of my central air service calls are related to water leaks.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    It's also not an invention. It's a reapplication of an existing product.

    I did a water leak yesterday in a scorching attic buried in insulation. This product would have only made more of the ceiling fall in because the pipe was broken. But, I guess you could say 100% of that specific call was water leak related.

    Shop vac is safer if you are unsure of where the lines go and if the drain is still intact or leaking.

    That looks nice, does it suck or blow or both?

    Here is what i use.

    It will suck and blow and has check valves both ways.

    Hi,
    I apologize fror the 90% water leaks.

    I am in and have been doing A/C work in South Florida.
    I forget it’s not super hot and humid everywhere.

    Yes the idea came from a bellows inflator and it is a beefed up version made tough enough for A/C service calls with much more available pressure.

    It only blows out the line. I originally introduced the Mighty Pump years ago which is a good product but found the need to have something that doesn’t require going outside usually in a muddy area behind bushes especially if its raining.

    It doesn’t work in every situation like some attics and ceiling mounted fan coil units but works great where applicable especially with the new drain line maintenance code being enforced in many states that provide an access device in the drain line.
    I have blown apart loose drain line fittings in walls using nitro or co2 and hate using a wet/vac because it is too time consuming.
    This literally takes a few seconds,
    Does a great job and never needs to be refilled or plugged in.

    Anything to make it easier and save time to do a good job.

    Hope it makes sense.
    Thanks for all feedback.
    Good or bad is ok.
    It’s always good to hear all sides.

    Have you checked it out. I mean tested it on HVACs? If it really works do you have any demonstration video or some reviews? Hvac is a complex electric appliance and expensive one too. I dont want to discourage you but you should consider testing and refining it.
    Good luck.

    Foot pump might clear the clog from the trap , but where does the shit go after that ? ?

    I use a shop vac .... OR take my trap brush , shove it thru , then cut the pipe , then take my garden hose , butt up against pipe going out , duct tape together , pull the trigger

    Garden hose definitely does it best

    What? You don't just put your lips on the vent and blow?

    It comes out of the pump. You’d be surprised foe much gunk it can move. It does plug it up on occasion an you need to take the check valve off, tap it out and rinse it.
