Just moved into our first new (old) home and am quickly learning the "joys of homeownership"! In the basement, there is a Little Giant VCMA-15ULST condensate pump attached via PVC for air conditioning. This pump appears to have two more input plugs. I need to get a dehumidifier for the basement and am wondering if I can input a line from a dehumidifier into this same pump, or if I need to buy a separate pump for the dehumidifier? Still haven't had to turn on the AC yet because we're still cool temps. Thanks for any help!

Usually whole-house AC can make about 3L/hour in humid conditions, and condensate pumps have rates in the range of 5 L/min. So adding another dehumidifier is perfectly handleable by the pump.

  • Could you elaborate? For example, are you saying that it would be OK for the OP to run two lines into a single condensate pump? – Daniel Griscom Apr 14 '18 at 17:50
