    Stuff it inside of 3/4 pvc and electrical tape the poo out of it. If it is out back and just dumping outside.

    We use the corrugated drain line that's made for them. Haven't had the condensation problems like we had with the clear tubing.

    I have often used pex with a wirsbo (uponor) expander tool to extend mini-split drain lines
    Pex will shrink back up to the barbed fitting on drain line. Usually no clamp needed

    We have 2 boxes of the stuff and it does not seem to fit.

    There seems to be a variance in that piece at the end of the unit's tube.
