tally from or 1' (0.3m) above any door, window, or

Vertical Vent Termination
Fig. 7
• Terminate at least 6' (1.8m) from the combustion air
intake of any appliance, and 3' (0.9m) from any other
building opening, gas utility meter, service regulator
etc.
• Enclose exterior vent systems below the roofline to
limit condensation and protect against mechanical
failure.
• When the vent penetrates a floor or ceiling and is not
running in a fire rated shaft, a firestop and support is
required.
• When the vent termination is located not less than 8'
(2.4m) from a vertical wall or similar obstruction, ter-
minate above the roof at least 2' (0.6m), but not more
than 6' (1.8m), in accordance with the National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
• Provide vertical support every 12' (3.6m) or as
required by the vent pipe manufacturer's instructions.
• Slope the horizontal vent 1/4" for every 12" (300mm)
towards the drain tee.
• A short horizontal section is recommended to pre-
vent debris from falling into the water heater.
• Install a condensation drain in the horizontal section
of the venting. For installations in tight spaces where
there is not enough room to install two elbows and a
horizontal drain tee, a vertical drain tee may be sub-
stituted.
