open stand pipes on AC units

Do you recommend capping stand pipes that are attached to traps from packaged or split system AC units? If so why?

If not why not?

Should the cap be installed to a stand pipe prior to the trap or after the trap?

just curious

It depends how the coil is installed. If it is a draw through coil an open vent is needed between the trap and coil otherwise it won’t drain because of the suction pressure on the drain opening. If it is a blow through coil it will drain without a vent because of the positive pressure.
