    Does it have a Reverse, off the Sump pump for those pesky grease fires?

    As hilarious as this thing is, it really is better than than those crappy recirculating fans that just blow the stuff back in your face. I have to give the guy credit for making the effort.

    That's what happens when a plumbers wife asks for a new vent hood. I like it.

    It is worse than those things, much worse.

    I'm sure you're right, but I can't figure out why.

    John,

    Because the recirculating ones will not melt down and spread a fire throughout the house like that PVC one will.

    It could easily melt down without a fire, causing a restriction for the fan/blower motor, causing it to overheat and catch fire.

    Or, a grease flame up on the range itself could set the PVC on fire.

    And those are just the first ones which came to my mind.

    I knew you were right. God, I'm smart.
    I was just thinking in terms of actual venting, not the flammability of PVC, which, to be honest, I've never thought about.
    Thanks.
