A: Not that I am aware of. Their purpose it to prevent mold buildup in the air handler (A/C) drain line that can cause a backup.
A: I'm not exactly sure, I was directed by my AC people to cut the tablet in half and drop it in at the top of the condensation pipe, which is open to the air. I do this once a month. I hope this is helpful.
A: I pull the filter out and there is a drain pan that holds the water that leads to the Ptrap. I insert 4 pills in drain pan on monthly basis and hasn't clogged up in the 3 yrs I have been using them. You could put in condensate line but could still clog from condensate line baçk to drain pan.
A: They produce water from condensation in the air handler, when it drains properly there will be no water in the collection pan. The water drains from the pan thru a pvc pipe, that sometimes if it’s not maintained it clogs with a pink algae, the tablet gets rid of the growth, I also use a liquid that Home Depit sells that I pour thru the pipe.
A: Yes, all A/C units will collect water, condensation. Central A/C units will gravity drain or be pumped out. Room air conditioners (window units) don’t leak as much because the condensation is splashed on to the condenser to evaporate.
A: Think your AC evaporator coil is like a cold can of soda in hot summer day - it sweats. In summer, esp in the attic as heat transfers from the hot air to the cold ac coil, water vapor condenses as heat energy lost in the process and liquid drains.
A: This refers to the air handling unit inside the house. Unless you are in some strange place with NO moisture in the air the evaporator will produce water. You are more than likely not looking in the right place .
