Leaking Condensate Pipe

My A/C is located in the garage in the front of the house. (The house is on a slab.) The drain pipe runs under the slab to the rear of the house and exits at that point. The drain pipe is leaking somewhere under the house. The water comes out the collar the A/C pipes are routed through (underground), and backs up under the house instead of out the drain pipe. Any idea how to fix this? Living in FL, I'm talking a lot of water!

Try taking a wet/dry vac and sucking the line out. It may just be clogged.

A/C

Have you tried to blow back on the drain pipe you have there and see if it is stopped up. You could suck it or blow it with a shop vac

I seemed to me that if it was blocked, it would back up into the garage, not under the house, but I flushed the line and poured bleach through it to be sure.

Drain A/C

Well can you run a new pvc line there for it and be out of the way? Or we have small condensate pumps that you could put by it and run the water line out over head some how. Drill a hole in the wall and run the pvc pipe out it.If you do put a small L trap on the end so bugs dont get onto it. ED
