    Default water tank vents - money shot

    I don't normally post pictures, no particular reason. I can't help myself this time, I just love a good money shot.
    Clients initial reaction to the vents was 'that's not our half of the deck', until I explained the problems.
    Of course, another listing agent who thought I was a freak for even wanting to see the roof top deck.
    Each 3" PVC pipe is hooked to a 50 gallon gas water heater. I wrote it up as D&H. My guess is the Condo Assoc. is going to be pissed.

    I notice that childs chair on the deck. Wonder what toys and debris will get placed down those vents?

    yes flue, not combustion. The kids chairs make it a money shot. Rick your comment is one of the things I explained in the report

    You mean 'instead of Type B gas vents' or 'for the power vented' type?

    I understand that neither should be located there, just curious if it was "totally stupid" or if it was "beyond totally stupid" (as if there is a difference).

    Jerry, they are newer power vented units. Combustion air being pulled from hall closet. It's ok though, they put a louvered door on the closet.

    Exclamation common City terminology here.

    "D&H = Dangerous and Hazardous, common City terminology here."

    Actually, you should be using the new ANSI Z535 series of alert or signal words:
    Caution, Warning, Danger.
    Caution: something may go wrong and cause some damage or injury
    Warning: something likely will go wrong and cause significant damage or serious injury
    Danger: something will go wrong and cause severe damage, death or severe injury

    You can use the word "notice" for FYI statements.

    HTH,
    Bob

    As in (for example ):

    CAUTION! Taking three more steps may lead to you falling off the cliff and resulting in injury!

    WARNING! Taking two more steps may cause you to be seriously injured when you fall off the cliff!

    DANGER! Taking one more step will cause you to fall off the cliff to your death!
