I have been having problems with my split system AC and it's driving me crazy. The problem is, I live in a town house and I live in the corner unit. Due to the body coorporate rule, no pipes should be seen from the outside while all bedrooms are on the second floor, facing to the front of the road. Hence we had pump installed behind the ceiling and piping that runs horizontally to drain the water out to the outside. The first contractor who installed it was a nightmare, the ac leaked then we could feel the pump vibrating throught out the house. Also, I could hear water dripping behind the ceiling and sometimes behind the wall. We asked them to fix it but ... it leaks again and again. I'm sorry, I might not be using the right terms here. I wish someone would understand what I'm trying to ask.
Last year I had another contractor to fix the ac up and they fixed the leakage and said that I should get a bigger pump if it leaks again. Now summer is here again, once again water is dripping continously behind the wall. Then today I had the same contractor to see what is actually happening, apparently the pipe was disconnected from the pump, which explains the water dripping and he fixed it. The contractor said that this ac system with pump running behind the ceiling is a stupid system that creates constant problems. But nothing else we could do, because this is the only way we could do to have ac in our bedrooms. Not long after the contractor left, I heard water dripping on the ceiling ! Gosh.
What should I do? Anyone can explain ? Thanks.
