    For me, on my phone, the last picture is so poor in quality I did not see there was a drain out of the tee at the furnace.

    This was incorrectly installed, they reduced the size of the drain on the a/c.

    Also, most mfrs want an air gap or escape if the a/c and furnace are tied together. The reason is the air coming out of the a/c drain may keep the furnace from draining.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    And would have gone higher had not one of the plugs been missing in the side of the furnace.

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    Manufacturers instructions always harp on the dangers and problems associated with improper drains, especially with shared coil and furnace drains. I had to educate my guys profusely.
