    Cat IV Vent Clearance

    Thanks. I found this in my library for a Rheem direct vent. The vents are a little high. Lateral is not an issue.

    Cat IV Vent Clearance

    Does the 8 foot lateral clearance to sidewalls apply to PVC Cat IV vents? I did not see anything in the codebooks to suggest that it does not. However, I don't see anything in the manufacturer's instructions regarding this.
  3. What is this? The house - 1920 - used to have oil heat with tanks in the basement. There were pulleys from chains beneath this thing connected to nothing.

    Is there any prohibition of mixing copper and aluminum for the SEC hots?

    Tree growing around the neutral wire

    I recommended removing it. I have seen this many times before but never on one of my inspections.
  7. Would you recommend that the tree that has grown around this outside neutral wire be removed? Besides the weight, I don't think it's doing any harm.

    bad smell under sink and in base cabinets

    Single bowl sink. Install an Air Admittance Valve - AAV (aka Studor vent). Water may be getting sucked out of the P-trap every time you drain the sink, or other drains are using the sink drain for venting. Is roof vent clogged?
