Leaking 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 HVAC system is located there along with our fuel tank. With our finished basement we have carpet and wood floors, a bar that my dad made from scratch, an entertainment center made out of oak and a large smart TV. This will be my new 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 living room and bar in it’s own room. When we were all down there one night, my dad decided to check the furnace. 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. Looking up the problem online, my dad found that if the two pipes aren’t glued together, then there’s a possibility 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 HVAC technician to make sure that the leakage wasn’t anything major.
