Would this be a bad idea? I know those ammonia pucks you put in the
toilet tanks muck up the flapper valves in the toilet tanks, so I don't
use them. I had one lying around and I thought placing one in the pump
might be a good way to kill any mold or bacteria when I install a new
condensate pump for the dehumidifier attached to our furnice. Of
course it could also ruin a brand new pump very quickly, but not sure
if the pumps have any sensitive rubber or other stuff that the
chemicals would ruin.
Use bleach its cheaper, why waiste a trip and buy overpriced tabs when
your laundry bleach will do, plus if its like mine and many your furnace
is near the laundry area, where you keep the bleach, so its really free.
this is Turtle.
Cheap Bleach is cheap and you always got a bunch around all the time
when you need it.
Towlet Puck aww I have dought about it not eating up something good.
HVAC drain tablets -- aww a Option but costly.
Bleach -- Cheap and you always have it.
E-mail me your addy, and Ill send you some of those so called overpriced
tabs that the makers suggest over bleach...
BTW...bleach is never suggested by the makers of the units, and some makes
even state in the warranty that using it kills your coil warranty....just as
This is Turtle.
i do hope you know we are talking about a condensate pump like Little
Giant and putting a bath room towlet bowl puke in the condensate pump
and not in the hvac coil of some sort as you state. A Condensate pump
is made to operate in a acid condition of a Ph 3.4 and bleach would
make very little difference to the pump with the Stainless steel shafts
& stainless steel Metal Parts and rubber or plastic pump gear.
