    Default Gurgling Condensate drain

    Can anyone tell me why I heard gurgling from the condensate drain line (at the furnace) while the furnace was in operation. It was similar to the sound you get if you blow through a straw into a glass of water.

    Or ... insufficient trap depth which is allowing the pressure in the unit to overcome the trap depth.
