Nope, come on guys, he read the installation instructions, it said to terminate the vent
4' from a door, he missed the part about the 12" min. above expected snow fall, not to mention the whole "pipe diam. length, sizing chart thingy".
Hey, just be aware there IS a plastic slinky vent listed to UL 1738 avaible in lieu of PVC that's catching on:
Centrotherm's Innoflue polypropylene chimney liner flex and rigid system. I can take much higher temps than PVC and does not rely on a glued joint. In fact, the rigid pipes can be rotated even after installation. Sort of an 'O' ring joint. http://www.centrotherm.us.com/products/
Anyway, I think this is a photo before the job was completed. I'm guessing he was planning on extending it to either his neighbor or mother-in-law's suite.
