Our rubber connector at the first connection with the motor, what's the solution?

0 votes
we have water leaking from the bottom of the rubber sleeve that connects our exhaust motor and the pvc pipe (just as pictured).  Because we didn't know what the part was or did at first, we had a tech come out.  He tightened the screws in the clamps and said he thought that would solve the issue.  It has not been solved.  Two questions - should we replace the rubber sleeve? And should the two pieces of PVC pipe be physically inserted inside one another?  Because just be feeling the rubber I can tell that there is a small (1/2") gap between the two pieces of pipe.

Hi Angelos856,

Could you provide that picture mentioned in your question, for some reason it didn't show up, brand and model of your appliance could help as well. It sounds like this could be drainage issue but I need to see it and get some details about the furnace.
