The only real drawback to long piping is pressure loss. I have been thinking about the problem - I have some condensate even in the dry Bakersfield atmosphere - but I don't want to buy and pay for the electricity of a commercial air dryer. Finally dawned on me that I cool my shop w/ an evaporative cooler so all I need to do is roll a ~18" diameter flat coil of 1/2" copper tubing and drop it into the sump of the swamp cooler. Instant dehydrator for free!
