Question: I do not have the flexible pipe but the white I believe 3/4 pvc pipe. How can I insert a joint with the opening to pour the bleach down like in the picture? Will I be able to get the pipes out of the current joint or should I cut them and them and then buy new pipes to recreate the drain?

This comes as a result of serious leaking and the floor of my basement is water soaked. I am calling a professional today but I read a few sites and think a clog may have caused this backup and leaking.

This is great for a general basic cleaning on the condensing coils. As far as the inside is concerned, you can vaccuum all you want, but if you don't clean the inside coils and blower with a thorough washing then it's pointless because that's where most of your dirt and mold is. If you have mold then you need to have a professional come and clean the coils, blower, and ducts. They have chemicals that help kill and remove the mold. There are way too many people that don't do this, hence the reason they have so many allergy problems part of the time. Your unit should be completely cleaned every 6 to 10 years. Sorry to get on my soap box, but I really just want people to know that there's more to it than just cleaning the outside condensing coils. Also, cleaning the entire unit will save even more energy.

I did this service to my air conditioner today. Good clear easy to understand instructions. WOW! I had no idea how badly it needed this cleaning. The coils were clogged full of dirt and stuff. Should work much better now.

Good instructions. I look forward to trying this myself.
