Water leaking - Central Air

I know nothing about AC units but I just found my AC leaking around where there is a hose coming out to the floor drain.

I found this once before a few years ago and I just pounded the rubber stopper that was in one of the 2 hose valves (One has the hose on it) and it stopped.

Looks like its coming out behind there now.

Guess I should call a guy to come out next week or has anyone see anything like this?

Is the hose just for extra condensation?

the drain coluld be slimed up, the drain pan could be slimed up. Try using a wet vac to suck on the drain opening and see if it removes an obstruction.

Thanks DJ. That may have fixed the issue. I cleaned out the ports with a vac and it stopped now.

I will keep an eye on it for now.

Thanks again!
