    Help! Potential Venting Issue Rheem 90

    Contractors onsite now. Rheem Prestige 90 unit is being installed within 5 feet of outside wall but outside 2nd story deck is about 7feet high. Contractors concerned about proper outside vending. May have to cut hole in deck & put in an elbow and vent it through the deck. I'm ok with this, but I am concerned if there are issues with 'how many elbows' or 'angle of elbows' or length of outside vent. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.

    How close will the vent be to the deck.
    The deck can be treated the same as a sofit for clearence.

    Pics of Deck where we have venting problem

    sorry took so long, had to convert photo into a Word document to get the file size down from 2meg to less than 100K !

    This is a picture of the wall where they need to vent the furnace. The furnace is sitting about 3-5 feet behind the brick wall where you see the A/C unit.

    Thanks!

    That tall vertical white pipe is a downspout, correct?
