When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room as
Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
Use the fewest 90° turns possible.
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance
Use the following Vent system chart to determine type of vent
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
