    Home made vent pipe?

    I found this today, z vent fittings but looks like home made pipe, I know it's not z vent, plus it terrible. I didn't squirt the high temp up the ass I just sealed the leaks for now.

    Ya it's bad, after I found out who the contractor was and that it was a govt assistance job it all made sense. I guess some people don't care if they kill someone. When I replace it I will get better pics I was using my camera to see how he got two male ends to fit together not for the wall of shame.
