  • Any of you ever seen anything like this before ?

    My boss had me go to replace a water heater today in a apartment. I showed up on the job and i was floored. As you can see in the pictures the water heater came up 90d over and then went into another 90 and went down into a tee with the other water heater then went out through the chimney. I have never seen anything like this before.

    I hope you changed it, or plan on changing it! That looks unsafe. It looks like a 'smoke-trap'.

        went "DOWN" into a tee???

        venting has to be graded upwards and never go down or negative

        glad you changed it, I bet the old water heater was carboned up, and the new one would not have operated this way, with all the new reg's.
