AC Evaporator tube leak (floor full of water)

Well, it seemed like a common problem with an easy fix. I drilled the hole in the evaporator tube and cleaned it out with a coat hanger. But I don't think that solved the problem. First off, I was expecting water to come gushing out, but there was nothing. Secondly, I was expecting to find pine needles and gunk, but nothing.

I sealed the hole back up, and the water still leaks from where the tube connects to the firewall. I think the design is just flawed, and no matter what, water is going to drip backwards into the interior. Is there a possibility I can seal the hole better where it connects through the firewall?

Thanks in advance

Not much easy things you can do about that, if it's not plugged.

Someone posted how they cut out a window in the side of the frame from the wheel arch, and put a rubber hose on the AC drain tube, just a couple days ago.

So crazy. I don't have the skills for that. Hopefully I can find another solution - otherwise it's off to the mechanic to see what he can dream up.
