Wife opened the closet where the furnace and water heater are and there was standing water. I took a screwdriver and pushed down the flap that keeps water from backing up through the drain and it all ran out. The flap is staying up though and plugging the drain. I poured in some drano and tries to get a snake into the drain but I can't find which way the drain is running.

Right now I have a screwdriver holding the flap down and it doesn't appear water is backing up so it has to be draining somewhat, right?

Any help is appreciated.

I know plumbing but don't have any idea what flap you're talking about. Is this a floor drain?

Yep, floor drain. But I got it fixed. I think the white crap that comes out of the AC just got built up on the ball and it got stuck. Seems to be draning fine now.
