PP Concentric up and out system
The concentric up and out vent system simplifies installations where the
water heater is mounted on an outside wall that can be direct vented
through that wall. This vent system only consists of the concentric
appliance adapter, one 90° elbow, and the termination, and can not be
Concentric up and out kit: Part# 7 738 003 210
The concentric up and out system must be installed according to the
respective Installation Manual.
All vent connections must be glued, except for the PP vent systems, and
the exhaust adapter (chapter 4.3.4) which is screwed into place on
the top of the appliance. Slide the vent pipe into the exhaust adapter.
The exhaust pipe must be properly supported and must be pitched a
minimum of a ¼ inch per foot back to the appliance. This allows the
condensate to drain properly.
An optional concentric vent/air intake termination can be used for the
installation of a vertical or horizontal venting system when using PVC,
CPVC, or ABS (see fig. 9).
The concentric vent/air intake body can be ordered from your local
wholesaler. Part# 196016 (3"/6") and Part #196006 (3"/5").
The appliance can also be installed with separate air intake and exhaust
piping (see fig. 13, fig. 20 and fig. 21, page 19) in PP, PVC, CPVC, and
ABS. Generic PP twin pipe can be used if certified to ULC-S636 and only
