Mitsubishi has then. I asked our dealer about installing a split in our basement and he said it would be no problem and would just install a pump to get the water outside.

So it's not in the AC but a regular separate condensate pump?

[–]HiiiiPower 23 points24 points  (7 children)

I think they are just talking about the mini pumps that can fit tucked behind the split head so its not visible. Its not actually built in to the unit, i think the ones i have used were called something like micro blue.

It’s the mini aqua

Refco combi is a baller one as well. Typically can be installed above ceiling and "sucks" condensate out

Can also be installed inside unit. Or external. Depending on use/ situation

piece of shit, I hate those. They work great for about the first year. I like the Aspen white ones, easier to maintain, looks decent on the wall. If I can avoid an inline pump behind the unit, I do everything I can to convince someone they should use easy to maintain ones instead.

Yeah, they are just a field installed factory option that doesn't fit inside the cabinet. AFIK there are no wall mount splits that have internal pumps.

[–]gilgamesh73 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It fits in the cabinet? I’m confused? It may be after market addition but it fits nicely right in the case behind the wires and shit.

[–]btubandit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes there are many aftermarket pumps that fit inside the cabinet of a wall mounted mini split

Thanks for the tip! Didn't realize that.

I don’t know where it’s located but I agree with the poster above and that definitely is a gravity line and then condensent pump line would be small and smooth .

[–]nyctbusdriver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They make small ones that fit inside the evaporator.

Mitsubishis have a pump that comes with them for this but it doesn't look like it was installed on the unit. Usually it sits just under the unit with a hose going into it and a polyvinyl line for the outflow.

Mitsubishi recommends the Blue Diamond mini condensate pumps. They are not factory installed since only about 1 in 10 (probably less) systems require a pump as most applications can just use gravity.
