There is a lot of broken rock below the slab, from blasting done during site prep. That provides a lot of space for water to disperse, and the footing drains keep it from filling. The actual amount of condensate produced is minimal and mainly just in winter, when the incoming air is cold. This choice for disposal was chosen for convenience. Condensate from the heat pump in cooling mode is handled the same way, and this flow is somewhat more, but still minimal. Disposal this way would not be chosen for an area with water table issues.
