Damaged condensate pipe

Our basement just recently got finished.The basement used to be just concrete walls and concrete floors with all of our junk that was stored down there! No one ever liked going to the basement because it was so cold! Our Heating and Air Conditioning system is situated there along with our fuel tank; With our finished basement my good friend and I have carpet and wood floors, a bar that my dad made from scratch, an entertainment center made out of oak and a giant smart TV; This will be my current hangout place in my house.

  • When I have friends and family over the basement will be the place to be.

Our furnace is sectioned away from the kitchen and bar in it’s own room. When my good friend and I were all down there one evening, my dad decided to check the heater, he saw that the condensate PVC pipe was leaking. He told us that it was most likely leaking because the two pipes were not glued together… My dad realized that the reason why it was unglued is so that it is easier for a person to reach the condensate pump, and looking up the problem online, my dad found that if the two pipes aren’t glued together, then there’s a option that they will leak. However he found that if he used two sheet metal screws, then it would eliminate leakage and he could still get to the condensate pump… Before he decided to make any moves, he wanted to call our Heating and Air Conditioning corporation to make sure that the leakage wasn’t anything major.
