I have a new electric hybrid water heater that emits condensation from a drain tube (normal) which is a bit different than a traditional electric water heater. Right now I have a bucket under the drain pipe and it drains about 1/2 gallon (+/-) per day.
I need to make the pipe drain outside and the water heater is in the garage right next to the wall, so hopefully this is trivial. Regardless I want to know the proper method to do this. I am going to use 1/2" PVC pipe to drain outside.
I have a 1/2" hammer drill, so i suppose I need a large masonry bit (the size of the outside diameter of the 1/2" pipe) and some kind of silicone to seal around the hole, correct?
Can someone please tell me if this is the proper thinking, or how I should go about drilling a hole through cinder block (do I need to worry about wires or rebar?) and seal it?
