Question - dryer vent pipe

Can a dryer vent pipe go through a gas hot water tank closet? It does not end in the closet but goes through. I was worried that if it separates and leaks lint, that lint is flammable…

I wouldn’t have even thought twice about it. No issue.

If it is bothering you, mention your concern to the buyer. They could use some aluminum tape to secure it better if they wish. It would likely not make my report. Like Joshua said, “No issue”.

thank you

Or there could be a gas leak and it can travel through the vent into the laundry room. Just kidding :). I agree with the others.

They put double stack units right next to the furnace and water heaters all the time in new construction around here.Do not like it but it is not against code .
