Thanks for that video. Very informative. I recently had a new pump installed to pump the condensate out into the yard. I noticed that he did not install a trap in the 3/4" condensate PVC drain. Is the trap necessary? If so it looks like no problem to put one in.

Thanks again. I don't have a video to show you but I could send some pictures if that would help.
