    cant see how this passed an inspection

    found these on a roof the other day.

    first one is of a rtu exhausting into the MUA intake.

    I wasnt aware of the add-on kit for the concentric kit.

    best part is all this work passed city inspections.

    The first is MUA? Is it an industrial location and they just don't care?

    on that concentric they directed the flue gas to be pulled back in as combustion air.

    how does anyone think that is close to correct?

    It would pass here because the inspector wouldn't have any idea what he was looking at, much less that it may be wrong.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I have to admit, they tried hard screw up that concentric.

    I had to "extend" just the end of a concentric once. Was a pain in the butt to find something that would fit it,
