VENTING
The vent pipe must be the same size or larger than what is indicated in Table 1. The PowerMax heaters are
capable of a 360-degree discharge rotation and operate with a positive vent static pressure and with a vent gas
temperature less than 400 F. The total length of the horizontal run must not exceed an equivalent of 45 feet. For
all cases, each 90-degree elbow reduces the maximum horizontal vent run by 8 feet and each 45-degree elbow in
the vent run reduces the maximum vent run by 4 feet. See Table 2 for the maximum vent lengths using a 90
degree and 45 degree elbows. The PowerMax induced-draft pool and spa heater uses positive pressure to push
flue gases through the vent pipe to the outside. This requires a completely sealed vent system--single wall vent
pipe with sealed-seams and joints may be used. Flue gases under positive pressure may escape into the dwell-
ing with any cracks or loose joints in the vent pipe, or improper vent installation. The vent pipe must be of a
sealed-seam construction such as those listed for use with category III appliances. Alternately, single wall or
double-wall type B duct which has had duct seams and joints permanently sealed using cements or other suitable
means which are rated for use at the flue gas temperatures of 325° F. and are permanent are acceptable. The use
of listed thimbles, roof jacks and/or side vent terminals are required; and the proper clearances to combustible
materials must be maintained in accordance with type of vent pipe employed- in the absence of a clearance
recommendation by the vent pipe manufacturer, the requirements of the Uniform Mechanical Code should be
met. The ventilation air and combustion air requirements for the PowerMax heaters are identical to the
requirements for the Standard MiniMax heaters of the same output capacities and can be found in the main
section of the Operation/Installation Manual, page 18. It is recommended that vent runs over 18 feet be insu-
lated to reduce condensation related problems and/or the use of a condensate trap in the vent run close to the
heater may be necessary in certain installations such as cold climates. The PowerMax is suitable for through-the-
wall venting. (Refer to page A-5, diagram 1.).
Recommended sources for Side-wall vent hood terminals include: The Field Controls Co. (2308 Airport Road,
Kingston, NC 28501, (800) 742-8368) and Tjernlund Products Inc. (1601 Ninth Street, White Bear Lake, MN
55110, (800) 255-4208)--consult manufacturer for model information and availability.
Do NOT combine exhaust vent pipes to a common exhaust vent in multiple unit installations. Run separate vent pipes.
