    Default Water Heater Flue

    This house originally had an electric water heater. Is this flue legit? This is a conventional water heater with a draft hood. No power ventilation. It is Rheem model RHGPRO40-40F. From everything I researched it needs to be above the roof and/or more than 8 feet from a vertical wall. If you can cite a reference regarding this type of installation I would appreciate it.
