    That would NOT even be a good TEMPORARY fix.

    How long has it been like that???

    Not sure, but believe at least a heating season. The vinyl is more melted than it looks in the pic. I think what is keeping it from excessive heat is that the flue products don't actually vent - as you can see by the furnace, there is a lot of spillage. Good that they are living in essentially a screened in porch when it comes to building tightness.

    everyone knows that flex is more restrictive, you have to pull it tight and increase the run to compensate.

    I's ask the H/O when they did this, And see what they say.
    Looks liike the water heater flue needs one,
    If you try to fail, and succeed.
    Which have you done ?

    That's a good one for the youts coming into the trade. Don't just do the PM on the furnace, look around and find some other work.

    Z-flex kits work really great, maybe they should try one.

    What type of house is this and what kind of people live in it?

    Large 2-story inner city house whose occupants felt they could not afford to have a pro look at it. Homeowner repair. Obviously did not know what they were doing. Was wrong about length of time it had been like this. Just this heating season.

    Don't worry, all the condensate running out the chimney will keep the flex cool, or fill the flex and bolck the airfolw
