HTPV

Recommended Posts

I found this in a house today. I thought all black or gray HTPV flues were condemned, but when I went to the CPSC web-site, it said that the recalled flues had Ultravent or Plex-Vent stamped on them. There was also a list of manufacturers participating in the recall, and Selkirk wasn't listed.

I already told my buyer she needed to check with an HVAC dude to determine whether this pipe was okay or not. But . . . I was curious if someone was more knowledgable about it than I am.

I remember "Selvent" was on the list of recalled HTPV vent piping systems that came out in the late '90s. I'd bet it's made by Selkirk. The recall was for through-the-wall installations only.

Ah . . . if you look above the UPC code in the second photo, I think it actually says, "Selvent." I, of course, don't remember what it said 'cause I was looking for Ultra- or Plex-.

There are grills mounted in the duct work. You have supply/returns inches from the draft hoods of two appliances. The recalled vent pipe is not the only problem with that installation.

Thank you, but I'm aware of the ten foot requirement.
