They would normally find that the external flue would operate so cooly that there it would not be able to maintain a natural draft and would get spillage at the water heater.

: The "rule of thumb" is a horizontal run of 3 feet requires a verticle run of 3 feet,,,or H 5' V 5'.
: Once you reach the outside wall it needs to vent up 2' above the eve of structure,,,this will enable it to draft,,,if you cannot get it to draft in the open air,,,I agree, better off not doing it, unless it's a power/direct vent.

: Unless it is a direct vent heater designed for side wall venting, the major requirement is that you don't do it. Otherwise follow the heater installation instructions.
