Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This video show how I made a catch pan to catch condensation from my furnace. I don’t have a metal break. I could not buy one the correct size.

thank you so much

Great video but how do you prevent water from leaking out of this pan?

Tractorman44 says:

We usually install a float switch that wires into the transformers secondary circuit to shut off the system if the tray fills to a certain level with water. Of course the hvac system goes down and if you are on vacation, it could be bad in the winter. It is a requirement in attic installs to ensure no ceiling damage from condensation. Good video sir, I like the 'can do' attitude.

Hi Bruce I have a similar set up. Just had to replace my condensate pump, had a nice amount of water on the floor luckily I stepped in the water before it got to bad. I was wondering where you got the moisture sensors? Thanks great video, have a good weekend

It would be easy for you to fold smaller parts and to stabilize the pan if you would use a big G-Clamp and put a little wood chip under the swivel shoe of the clamp to avoid scratches on the tin.

As always a great video Bruce.  I hope you are inspiring lots of younger folks on the importance of being 'handy' around the house, with your videos.  Keep em coming!

Well done Bruce!! And a great idea, I had a humidifier fail a week after I had a White Berber carpet put in!! And that's exactly what happened!!☺

John Strange says:

Good job. Maybe you'll cross paths with an old brake this year that fits in the budget.
