Can an air conditioning condensate drain pipe connect to a sink drain?
Friday, May 7, 2021
Terminating the condensate piping from an a/c system to the house drain piping under a sink is definitley allowed, but rarely done here in Florida. It is important to remember that the connection must be made before (above) the trap. If it is made on the trap arm—which is after the trap, as in the photo above—then the air that is occasionally sucked into the air handler through the condensate drain piping of any unit will contain sewer gas.
