We have an up flushing bathroom in the basement that the condensate is drained to . In 10 years we have only had the pump that was connected to the kitchen/washing machine fail due to a bad micro switch. Kitchen was removed and the other pump replaced (it was still working) it was 21 years old. I’ve gotten the 9v battery powered moister alarms all over the house since our previous water heater developed a slow leak. They are another failure point for sure. I’m considering a mini split for the basement and it will need a condensate pump. That’s not factoring into my decision to install or not. EvanI'd like to put one in, but our pit basement has no drain. It makes me nervous to rely on a condensate pump down there, year after year.
