Okay, this is weird. After days of very cold weather for Southern
California, it's gotten fairly warm here. My air conditioning kicked in
today. I noticed that whenever it's on, there's a sound emanating from my
bathroom sink drain. It sounds like water lightly gurgling somewhere down
the pipe. It stops instantly when the air conditioning cycles on and starts
again when the a.c. does. I ran water down the drain and there was no
noticeable effect on the sound. I've lived in this house for a year -- it's
basically a new house. I never noticed anything remotely like this before,
What the hey?
My guess is your a/c drain is tied into that sink drain somewhere and the trap
in the a/c drain is not completely full of water. If so, the noise should stop
when the a/c makes enough water to fill the trap.
BGBevill's got it right. It's likely the condensate drain runs through the
wall to the trap under the sink in the bathroom [not a new idea, done all
the time in California.] After the air conditioning runs enough to fill
[it's] trap in the attic, the air will stop going down the drain.
