    Hvacmd I have come across that problem. New unit two days water coming from unit, found rubber elbow piece off of trap spud. Put it back on thought maybe it just wasn't on the way. Made sure all the way on and clamped good. Then while talking to customer (who is also a friend)- I actually saw the the darn elbow slide off of the trap.
    If this is what you have going on>. I took the trap off and cleaned the spud and reinstalled and wiped out the inside of the elbow. I figured maybe some oil got on one of the pieces. Anyway that was early last winter and it did not come off again. Hope it works for you too.
    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    Thanks. That is a good idea. Never thought of that.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
