The drain tubes for the Furnace and AC run about 10 feet across the laundry room to the drain in the middle of the floor. Unfortunately this is a fairly high-traffic zone (seven people living in the house) and it is a bit of a tripping hazard. Does anyone have suggestions for different lines or something I could put around the line to avoid tripping?
I'm imagining it's only a 1/2" pipe, in which case maybe an on-floor cord protector might work: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Legrand-Wiremold-5-ft-Over-Floor-Cord-Protector-CDBK-5/100669770
Or you could re-route the pipe around the perimeter of the room to avoid the heaviest traffic.
Another solution -- the one used in my house for both the condensing furnace and the dehumidifier -- is to run the drains into a small condensate pump. The output tube from this pump can then be routed up to ceiling level, across the room, and then down into the drain.
