I have been playing this game for 20 years. I have never seen PVC used for venting a water heater.
It doesn’t look like it held up very well does it?
Interesting article regarding this.
The Lowes Braided Flex line with attached tag is the clue to Harry Homeowner and bud’s installation prowess. The PVC is seeing it done on HGTV without understanding the WHY…!!!
Depends on the efficiency or design of heater
Standard efficiency water heater that flue pipe needs to be metal.
Look inspector Martin I agreed with you. LOL
And thats why
And now you are making me laugh Roy😉
Yes! It’s about time you figured me out. Have a great day sir.
That’s bestiality in my neck of the woods.
International Code Council’s International Fuel Gas Code 503.4.1.1:
Plastic pipe and fittings used to vent appliances shall be installed in accordance with the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions.
Yep your right, because a plumber would hard pipe it so you have to call them to fix it.
I would suggest staying out of Roy’s woods…
A PVC Vent pipe does not a High Efficiency Water Heater make…
So is that pipe Pink, or more along the lines of Fuchsia?
LOL. I’m going with charred ivory.
