    Default Water heater vent pipe

    What do you guys think of this. I think its crap, I did not get any CO readings at start up but I still think it's crap. I would think the exhaust would have to blow directly out the barometric damper in the right weather conditions.

    Definitely wrong Wayne. The combustion gases in that flue pipe are not going to make a 90 degree turn on their own away from that damper and up the chimney. Path of least resistance.

    David, Nice link, So I guess he had it right when he was at the truck but when he got to the unit it was 4:31 and Bud Wweiser was on the phone.
    Thanks NIck, That's what I thought too. I blamed it on the broker. HAHA
