    Default No replies in the roofing section, maybe here

    Flu pipe between a turbine vent and side wall. Also a ridge vent above.

    I don't see those turbine vents around here so I'm not sure about it.
    I need some ideas on this so I finish the report.

    Kevin,

    Forget the wind driven turbin, the problem is the adjacent vertical wall!

    Well Phillip,
    That's what I thought, but just for curiosity, if not for the vertical wall what would be the rule for the turbine and flu.

    IRC says:
    - G2427.6.7 (503.6.7) Forced air inlets. Gas vents shall terminate not less than 3 feet (914 mm) above any forced air inlet located within 10 feet (3048 mm).

    But, that is not a " forced air *inlet* ". Just something to keep in mind, though.

    I did not find reference to 'building openings', which is what I was looking for. Bob H., is there a requirement for separation from 'building openings'?
