QuestionsCategory: QuestionsConnecting two pieces of AC drain line with vinyl tubing
Handyman Staff asked 2 weeks ago

I recently modified my drain line and ended up twisting it more than intended when gluing the PVC sections back together. As a result, my outdoor drain is no longer straight and looks unsightly. To fix this, I can make another cut near the end of the indoor section and use a coupling to adjust the direction of the outdoor section.

I watched a YouTube video where a technician used vinyl tubing (I believe it was 1-inch inner diameter) to connect AC drains. I think this approach is neat because it would allow for easier modifications in the future (just in case this happens again); I wouldn't need to worry about adding another coupling to straighten the outside piece.

Would this be a good practice? Are there any potential issues?
