The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

Nice post! Suggest a CO detector for the basement?
Which makes more sense to you?
- turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
- leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%
DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

I've seen those plastic rings on top a little melted but that's just nuts, they must have a ton of air infiltration that no one died from co poisoning
The problem is, the pipe is pushed to far into the stack(gutter). Pull the pipe back a little and it should vent just fine. Do they make a starkap for 4" gutter? lol
The plastic rings should never have any signs of melting.
I thought "G" vent wasn't rated for hot water heaters.
Hey guys - I have actually talked the boss into getting them a CO experts low level detector. This is a older couple who in addition to the heater have a gas oven and dryer. I definately see a high probability of low level continuous CO.
The heater is in a vented crawl space. Half has been excavated to a little workshop/storage area.
Above the heater is actually the living room where the couple spends most of their days.
Gravity - I did move that sleeve and now heater vents the majority out. But I still get slight spillage out of DHood.
Sure don't like it but since Its not my company I really cant do much else except learn and wait for when I have a license and own the buisness.
Every day is a new chance to do my best and try and make combustion appliances safe as I can.
I would have red-tagged it. It is illegally venting into a vent pipe that aint in the book. lol.
Im glad you moved the pipe back. You have 5 minutes to establish draft.
Hopefully the vent in the space is keeping enough positive pressure and helping with draft.
