Humidifier drain hose

My system will be entering it's second heating season.

The Honeywell humidifier is the gravity type, water flows thru pad and the excess water goes down a clear tubing to the drain. This tubing is nasty. It has crap built up in it and it looks like mold is growing too.

Please tell me this is normal?

If not, what can I do to keep this from happening?

I would like to replace, but if it will end up looking the same, then why bother?

HUMIDIFIER

They have stuff that will clean that out of the pad and line.IF it dont, just get a new pad from your HVAC guy.There is a small tablet you can get to put in the humidifier and help keep it clean.
But you do want to clean it up and get it in good working order for the winter. IT WILL SAVE YOU $$$$$$ IN THE LONG RUN.
Yes thats just the stuff thats in the water that all ED

I have the HVAC Co that installed come out twice a year (fall and spring) for maintenance.

It is a real bargain, only $110 ($55 each).

I just wanted to know that something could be done before I press the issue. I realize the pad will be extra $.

Thanks!

Buy a new pad at your Local Home Center store, and the hose just flush it with bleach and water..
