    Default LP tank near direct vent

    1st time I have seen this. Does not appear like a good idea to me, but wondering if anyone has a code reference or any manufacturers statements that would not allow this?

    Default Re: LP tank near direct vent

    NFPA 58 3.2.2.2b"Cylinders alongside of buildings shall be located and installed so that the discharge from the cylinder pressure relief device is at least 3 ft horizontally away from any building opening that is below the level of such discharge. The discharge from cylinder pressure relief devices shall be located not less than 5ft. in any direction away from any exterior source of ignition, openings into direct vent (sealed combustion sysytems) appliances, or mechanical ventilation air intakes."
    Frank - I had a recent thread about propane tank clearances, and the above was provided by Bob Harper.
