B vent gap at connection

Recommended Posts

I have never put B-vent together.

Ignoring the insulation issue, is this small gap at the connection of any consequence?

I would be concerned that if the elbow was installed out of alignment such that it separated at the outer joint, then the inner joints could also be damaged.

This is not uncommon during installation, but definitely should not have been left like this. Maybe someone bumped into it. Remove the elbow, pop the metal bead back in it's groove so that the elbow swivels freely, and reinstall. If the bead does not stay in it's groove, than I would get a new elbow.
