AC Condensate Pan Cleaner
Eventually, your condensate drain line for your cooling system is going to get dirty and become plugged. In fact, a plugged AC drain line can turn into a very expensive repair if you don't clean the AC drain line regularly!
If you do take advantage of a local company who maintains your heating and cooling system for you in the spring and fall seasons, this is something they will do for you. If not, you should keep the condensate line clean and add antibacterial and anti-sludge buildup tabs to your condensate pan yourself.
