    Hello all. I have a brand new Heil propane furnace in a new home. I noticed water under the furnace. My builder had the furnace installers come back and they said it was the condensate pump and they replaced it. However, I noticed a few days later it was still leaking. Basically the leaks are slow, but in multiple locations around the base of the furnace bottom. They had put Hardcast foil grip tape around the seem at the bottom of the furnace and the water appears to be leaking around the tape also. I'm meeting with my builder later this week and would appreciate any advice. I'm an accountant and know very little about these matters.

    I have attached a couple photos

    Thank you all.

    My guess is you have a loose condensate connection in the furnace
