Hi, I'm Douglas and I am here to help you resolve problems with your heating and cooling equipment.

If your air handler is vertical, you can replace the vertical drain pan...CLICK HERE

If your air handler is in a horizontal position you can replace the horizontal drain pan... CLICK HERE

If it's just the pipe coming out of the pan you wouldnt need to replace the drain pan, just the few fittings there.

I think that the pan they call vertical, even though it's horizontal, is the one I need. However the picture showes one pipe coming out the end & my pan has two. There's no indication of how to change it out, can you supply that info?

Actually, it's not as easy as you may think. The refrigerant will need to be recovered, the lines cut, the coil pulled out and the drain pan will need to be replaced with the coil out of the air handler. Once that's done, it gets put back in, re-soldered, a new filter/drier will need to be installed in the liquid line, then the refrigerant lines need to be evacuated and then the system can be charged back up.

Unless there is enough flexibility in the soft copper which would be unlikely
