Buderus Vent Connector design

That's a shame,

I suspect though that it's a quality of work issue. I bet if you flew over to Germany and took a tour of a hundred basements to look at boilers you wouldn't be able to find a single one doing that.

In a situation like that, I wonder if the installer needed another 1/2 or 3/4 turn on the PRV... but he didn't know if he could get another whole turn... and he wanted to line up over his preferred outlet pipe location... so he didn't quite get it tight enough. A connection like that is subject to a lot of hot/cold cycles and needs to be bulletproof.

Right. I would blame the installer or maybe the supplier. Those fittings would probably be installed outside of the factory.

Some cheap imported castings will leak no matter how well they are installed, such as some brass valves I've seen. The castings develop pinholes. [:-thumbd]
