Condensate pump without cord and plug

Condensate pump without cord and plug

Condensate pump without cord and plug

Cord and plug cords can not be installed above suspended ceiling. Condensate pumps need to be installed above the ceiling all the time. Do you know a condensate pump without a cord and plug?

RE: Condensate pump without cord and plug

I think most condensate pumps are hard-wired. You mean a condensate pump for a cooling coil above ceiling, like in a VRF system?  

RE: Condensate pump without cord and plug

I mean a small pump serving a one coil (in my current application- a furnace). Most come with a plug and cord. Including Hartell (that I saw). I am concerned that changing to hard wired in the field will affect the UL listing).

RE: Condensate pump without cord and plug

You must be asking about cooling condensate pumps.

Steam driven condensate pumps w/o cord and plug are common.

RE: Condensate pump without cord and plug

scroll through the Hartell catalog, they have hard wired small condensate pumps

RE: Condensate pump without cord and plug

Since you also need to run a secondary pan drain down to a "conspicuous place", why not run the main drain to a pump that's in a closet or mechanical room?  These pumps are not "industrial grade" in many respects, potential for failure and a wet ceiling is very real.
