got a Ruud "90 plus" furnace, a little over 10 years old, recently
retro'd with A/C. Came home this PM and was disappointed to see that
the floor in my basement was slightly damp, even after my recent
escapades with regrading the side yard. (I was checking because it
rained today for the first time in a while, and I wanted to make sure I
didn't have an issue.) Anyway, the dampness seems to be coming from
the furnace; there are two hoses in the bottom section of the
furnace that I am guessing have to do with draining condensation (they
attach to a small black plastic thing inside the case which is also
connected to the PVC pipe going to the condensate pump.) They're
completely rotted and crack at the slightest touch. So, I ASSume they
Question is, do these need to be any special kind of hose? They appear
to be standard black rubber, 1/2" i.d. and I was figuring on going to
the Despot and getting some of that clear stuff in a similar size, just
so I don't have to turn the furnace off to get this cleared up.
However, is this a permanent fix, or should something else be used? The
"real" appliance repair shop isn't open after 5 PM and the odds of me
getting home before then are about nil.
