    I am installing a new gas water heater in a utility closet which will have an ATP discharge line going through an outside wall and terminating in a 90 degree bend and short pipe pointed down toward the ground. How far off the ground should that termination after the 90 be? Seems like I read a min/max limit in UPC somewhere.

    Thanks - figured it was in reference to the water heater's temperature/pressure valve but thought maybe this was something new.
