In your situation, I would set up an arduino powered automatic pump. Basically, you put the water level sensor in the bucket. Once the sensor gets tripped, the arduino activates the relay, which turns on the pump. You pump until the sensor is satisfied. You can discretely run tubing from the pump to the bathtub/window/outside. No more bucket emptying! ...

There are lots of clever ideas here, but I think they are all over-engineered. You simply need to get the water moved. Right now you are doing it manually with a bucket. I'd suggest some alternatives: Have the condensate line exit the building through the wall, extend it to ground level. This would be the simplest and cheapest route. Alternatively, you ...

How about running the condensate line into a humidifier? You will want to get a humidifier that is ultrasonic (not "warm mist"), since you just wanted the water vaporized, not heated. Cut a small hole in the top of the tank, and run your condensate line into it. Note that since this will be outside you will want to protect it somewhat from the weather, and ...

The solution for 100% closed cooling systems (like a refrigerator) is actually pretty elegant and simple: a pipe from the condenser coil (the part of the A/C on the "outside" that gets hot is run through a pan where water collected from the evaporator coil (the part that gets cold) sits. The fan that also cools the condenser blows over the water, which is ...

Set up a fan and drip the condensate into the the spinning fan blades. Have the fan blowing the water mist away from the balcony. The optimal fan to do this would be a high RPM high CFM small diameter fan. There are many IP52 water resistant computer case fans that can do this... like this one. The fan can be powered by something like this. I would use the ...

While you can't have it drip off the balcony, you can turn it into a fine mist and blow it off. Even a fine sprayer would work fine, but you'll need a float switch to auto-activate it, and a pump. On the plus side, this will air condition your balcony as well. Home Depot has a bucket-top misting fan that looks like it would solve your problem. You would ...

Assuming the waste line is still at the proper angle (it does need to have slight decline or gravity won't work for you): It sounds to me as if you have an airflow problem in the vent stack. There must have been some reason you changed the connection between the drain and the waste stubout? Was something slow before that? Or was there a leak? It's ...
