  • Dryer Vent/Duct

    Not sure where to put this. When running the dryer duct hard pipe, do you just tape the joints on that puppy?

    Thanks.

    You're only supposed to tape it, cause using screws will catch the lint.

      That's what I thought as it makes common sense to me. You use the same foil type tape approved for ducts, right?

        Yes I use foil tape, as it's better than using duct tape. But some body else might be using something different.

          I have 5 Huebsch dryers with 9" vents. I screw those puppies together. Residential, I use aluminium pipe and silver tape. Thought about using a Malco snap lock tool on the joints also. Tape usually holds okay.

            i believe that pop rivets are acceptable. the idea is the rivet will peen over if it's installed with the proper length rivet.

            i don't think tape is a lifetime joint.
