"B" vent - PVC clearance

Jerry Simon

Recommended Posts

Brian & Kurt...thanks...my thoughts exactly...I don't know if PVC should be considered combustible (though I know it'll burn)...so I wrote it up as Brian said (by the book)...& I mentioned that toxic gas part. NO signs of overheating...home was 5 years old.

Kurt, I think PVC is now allowed in Chicago....wasn't for years...I heard because the thought was if it was burning, it gives off that toxic gas. Wasn't real reason the plumbers union (takes longer to assemble cast)??? Guess someone realized if the plumbings burning, there's other, bigger problems.
