    Default Boiler exhaust and intake venting and support

    Any feedback on the supports used for the exhaust and intake air for this boiler would be appreciated. Also, do you think the exhaust air should slope up a lot more than what it does right after it exits the boiler?


    Thanks,

    Ryan

    The only thing I can say is "What do the manufacturer's installation instructions state?" - that is what you would need to go by.

    Not sure pitch is a big issue beyond condemsation concerns. Exhaust is probably fan induced. I'm more concerned about install exceeding max 90's

    The supports look like they used what they had at hand. I doubt that anyone would approved of a 2x12 and a section of ABS pipe as a proper support.

    As Jerry said, you would need to know the manufacturers requirements before you really say much. If I did not have the venting requirements I would say so, and also note that supports are most likely not an approved method of supporting the pipes.
