Condensation disposal


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I came across an condensation pump discharge line that was plugged directly into the main sewer line. This is a concrete basement setting that is a good 12" below the city street level.

In the mechanical room they also had a drain pump (small lift pump) for the wetbar sink. The picture shows the condensation pump and the drain pump next to each other.

Is there any reason that the condensation pump could not empty into the same line as the wetbar sink and then let the drain pump discharge both up into the main line?
