1) Your solution will work just fine with the new coupler.
2) Well for one, it will leak from the unit, rust out the drip pan, possibly build up & leak into the home through the ducts and create airborne bacteria.
Realize that the air that passes through the evaporator coils, air filter and drip pan, is the air you breath.
I have seen on the market, chemical pucks that you put in your drip pan to kill batcteria.
I last saw them on Graingers and they were pricey for the number and size of the units I was working with.
Ok, so it sounds like if the p-trap is clogged, the pan will over-flow, and if it's flooded, it will make it easier for bacteria to grow there, correct?
Ok, great. I will get another coupler and I'm pretty much finished!
Thanks a million, Kok328!
