Most condensate drains drain to the exterior of the home releasing water at your foundation.

  • It is good to keep this water away from your foundation, if you can water the garden with it, even better. 
  • If your garden is close by, you can simply install a hose to the bottom of your condensate drain. 

Run the hose to your garden and drill some holes in it to release the water.
