Why bother with emptying the drain tank when you can install a condensate pump to remove the water automatically? This pump has a 17 ft lift capacity to reach virtually any remote drain. With the condensate pump installed, drainage is automatic and access to the compartment is no longer necessary. 110 V or 220 V pump kit includes 3/8 in diameter x 20 ft length hose and installation hardware. A cover plate can then be added to conceal and protect the pump. Drop ship only.
