Note to Self

Next time the A/C begins dumping water into the hallway, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off thermostat
  2. Open air return filter grate
  3. Remove filter, set aside
  4. Cut 1/2" PVC pipe (drain trap) at top
  5. Bring outside
  6. Fire water through trap w/garden hose
  7. Reattach 1/2" PVC trap with 25 cent PVC collar
  8. Turn A/C back on
  9. Start enjoying cooled air again
  10. Save self from hot sleepless night and very large weekend time-and-a-half charges from elderly, very nice but very expensive A/C repairman.

There are times when I hate being a handyman too late to do any good.
