    That and the improperly connected single wall connector, and that single wall connector requires 6" clearance.

    In picture one does anyone know how the water heater exhaust vent should be correctly connected to the furnace exhaust vent?

    Thanks

    Ryan: preferred practice is to have the water heater connected to the flue using a "Y" fitting to facilitate draft. Nature and physics don't like right angles.

    Really, you're not required to provide (and should not provide) a fix, repair or recommendation regarding how something is done or its repair (even if you're an expert in that feild). Just noting the condition in your report and why it is a deficiency and a reference to the properly qualified individuals who are licensed or certified to do the repairs. Note that if you prescribe a fix and are wrong, even a little, the client can come back to you legally.
