    Recommended Posts

    Guest motlyman

    I burnt something on the stove the other day so i opened the windows and turned on the air conditioner to blow the smoke out. All good.

    I have noticed since then there has been water leaking from a plastic pipe from the unit on the roof?

    We have been in this house for about 8 weeks, so the air con hasnt been on yet.

    Any ideas??

    No, not evaporated yet its still sitting in the gutter lol:biglaugh:

     

    I dunno mate. not into this air con malarky. Its a big square cube thing on the roof with fins on it!!!!! It has a copper pipe going to it which i guess is a feed and a plastic pipe hanging out just resting on the roof which is the one dripping?

    Not for much longer though. Had a phone call from the supplier yesterday to say the solar was in. Just need to find a slot to fit it:wacko:

    Watch this space.

    Must be damn moist in there, its been dripping for 3 days and it was only on for 5 minutes:biglaugh:

    Thanks

    I think its ok Colin as if you have a big box on the roof with fins then its evaporated and thats how that system works. Its should stop soon.

    Soggy. Don't worry my pools still cold too and our solar is up and working.:biglaugh:

    Hi Colin,

     

    If the unit is still switched on it's likely to be one of two things, either the float valve is sticky and the unit is overflowing, or you have a proplem with the dump valve (stuck partially open or leaking past the piston). If the unit is switched off chances are the water valve is stuck open.

     

    I'm not an A/C engineer but had to fix my own during the heatwave and learned pretty much all the in's and out's of an Evap system.

     

    Hope that helps.

     

    Paul.
