There is a 3/4" or 1" white pvc drain that comes off the unit and drains into the floor drain. Nothing appears to be coming out of the pvc drain pipe.
Yes we do. What do you need me to do next?
Please get vacuum and suck all you can from the end of that drain pipe.I know nothing is dripping but that may be our issue.Can you do this now?
Yes, let me give it a shot and then I'll let you know in a few minutes what happens.
When I put the shopvac on it some pink gook came out...looks like smashed grapes or dew worms. It sounded like I sucked into the vaccum a small handful of stuff. It looks like possibly a little water came out but not much coming out yet. I then redid this about 3 times without any new material being sucked out or water dripping out the end of the tube.
The display still says "your heat pump needs service"
I can blow through the pipe easily. I did go the breaker box and shut off the Geo Thermal breakers off and reset things. The thermostat is now indicating on status "Cool Is On." No more yellow light displaying heat pump needs service. Looks like we're making progress.
Do we need to clean the drain pipe a couple times per year going forward?
Thank you for your help.
