  • How often should I have to clean my AC Condensation pump?

    I have my dehumidifier dump into my ac condensation pump in the basement. Last year i thought my pump was going because it made alot of noise, so I bought a new pump. When taking the old one off, it was full of this whitish slimey gel type goo. To be honest it looked like someone with a runny nose was emptying it into the pump basin. I cleaned it out and the pump worked fine with no noise. So now I have a brand new backup pump.

    Anyway at the end of this summer I decided to clean it out again and there was more of this goo in there, not as much as the last time. With my dehumifier running, there is no way the water sits in the pump for very long. Its not green so I don't think its mold or algae, but I have no idea whats going on here. Should I not have my dehumidifier dump into the pump?
