Weird AC condensor corrosion?


Recommended Posts

Hi all. On an inspection today, I found this outdoor unit with obvious corrosion/deterioration on one corner.

The unit is a 10 y/o Lennox. The fins in the discolored area were very brittle and turned to dust when touched. The tubes were green with corrosion.

An above ground swimming pool is about 15' away. I would guess a chemical has been spilled on it at some point.

I couldn't operate it due to exterior temps. and assume it will need replaced and referred to HVAC tech.

Any ideas as to cause of this or is the chemical thing likely???

Thanks in advance.
