Condensation Drainage

I have noticed the amount of condensation running out my A/C drain tube to be quite a lot. It is actually puddling up outside the house and making a "nice" little stream. How much condensation should I see? I live in central Mississippi and it is hot and humid (well, duh...). I am sure this plays a large roll in the condensation, I just didn't expect to see so much.

Thanks ahead of time for all your responses.

You dont say if new home are what. But with a new home the AC will pull more water out of it. Also if you just turned the AC on the unit might take 5 to 6 days work to pull the water out of the home. After this time the water flow will cut down . The main job of an AC is to get the humidity down in the home. This is what makes you feel cool.
