How about this do it yourself vent

I guess they saw a direct side vent on another appliance before and thought - why not.
This if from typcial water heater (setting on the floor in the garage)


Nice extension to. Gotta love it.

I like the insulation around the TPR valve.

Not allowed obviously but what would be the consequences?

Hey, at least it’s vented.

It surely beats this invisible vent, that I ran into…

Can’t mention that, can you. After all, you can’t report what you can’t see…:roll::roll:

Who puts water heaters in outhouses
