I believe this is a record for me…
Horizontal run for the water heater was approx. 25-28 feet, with very little to no incline.
Total length from WH to vertical vent pipe was close to 40 feet.
What are your opinions on the total horizontal length of this set-up?
Client intends to relocate the vent anyway, as the WH is close to 30 years old, and the (basement) bathroom door smashes into it when opening! (pic 4).
We were both shaking our heads (client is a Sparky and extremely knowledgeable about homes) since the entire vent system was replaced about 4 years ago during a reno. We both stated at the same time “What the hell were they thinking”?!
