This Condensate Drain Tube/Hose Kit comes in various lengths: 18", 24", 36" and 60". It connects to steel condensation drain pipe to drain corrosive fluid from the venting pipe.
Condensation drainage hose should reach all the way to the floor drain, as the liquid is corrosive. The intention of the shorter length is so that the installer provide their own exact, additional length according to the particular installation environment. Therefore, this tube should be fed into a drain or bucket through some form of piping. Or, an additional condensation drain hose piece can simply slide onto the end of this hose.
