Condensate drain requirements
An external condensate drain (not supplied with the heater) must be
installed under the following conditions:
• All vertical terminating vent installations.
• Horizontal terminating vent installations where the total linear vent
length is greater than 6 feet (1.8 m).
• Vent installations where any section of the exhaust vent pipe passes
through an unconditioned space.
Minimum combustion air and exhaust pipe length
The minimum exhaust pipe length is 1 foot (0.3m) of straight vent pipe.
The minimum combustion air pipe length is one 90° elbow.
Maximum combustion air and exhaust pipe length
The following tables display the maximum allowable straight pipe
lengths for combustion air and exhaust piping with consideration to the
number of elbows used. Reduce the equivalent length for each elbow
used from the maximum allowable length depending on the system
used. Refer to table 8 if using 3" diameter venting. Refer to table 9 if
using 4" diameter venting.

Use of elbows
It is recommended to limit the amount of elbows used in the exhaust and
combustion air piping to reduce friction in the air flow. The following lists
the maximum amount of 90° elbows allowed in either the exhaust or
combustion air piping:

Table 10
Two 45° elbows are equal to one 90° elbow. Any
combination of 45° and 90° elbows may be used in
the vent system as long as the combination does not
exceed the maximum listed in table 10 above.
