Wade I am a firefighter and we were super busy last night, I'm sorry. It's my moms sink. And yes, the a/c drains to the same line as the sink.
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 year ago.
Ok. Because of the condensate is acidic it causes the drain to have buildup. Is it just a slow drain that needs unclogged?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have the ptrap disconnected and now it's draining to a bucket now. So the sink doesn't overflow. Only about a 1/4 full since last night.
