In response to Re: venting a gas water heater
: Is it OK to reconfigure the vent flue, which currently runs vertically from the basement right up through the kitchen above it, horizontally out the basement wall? What are the specs for rise per foot? Can this even be done? The vent on any gas appliance,except on super high efficiency units, really should be run out your roof.When I run them horizontally I put atleast 1/4 inch per foot of fall back to the water heater.Mike
