    1-what size is that furnace?

    2-can you get to the far side of the c-pump to get the screw out?

    3-whats the other pvc pipe there?
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Looks nice to me. Always been a fan of the "right angle" air cleaners.

    Its a Payne 2 stage 80,000 Btu.
    Yes you can get the screw out on the c-pump, (thought about that myself after moving the DHW in place, screw can be reached with small 5/16 tech)
    Other Pvc Pipe is the DHW

    The right angle filter case is a real nice unit, saves a lot of time and looks clean. You can match the size of the drop with an adjustment on top...
    Gives the customers a larger surface area filter......

    Looks great ,not to knock but wondering what will happen in winter when vent exhaust leaves an icesicle by the window?The horizontal portion of exhaust is backgraded fr.outside to the furnace i'm sure but in real world my locale still translates to an outside sicle.
    Also,is that ss gear clamp w/screen on the intake?If it is these are the first place the intake will frost over in winter.With intakes I,ve had issues even w/2"dia.in ie.fall hoar frost gradually coning a restriction so instead put a tee on intake in lieu of the 90.The two openings on the tee alleviate this{also if there's powdery snow and swirling wind it lessens}
    Clearance fr.hwh vent to comb.air intake? Just wondering.

    Can't really see in pics but is that system636 pvc?At my location inspectors like to see evidence of primer{you know ,the purple crap that can end up all over}reason is becaus there was an allinone product that resulted in failed/leaking joints.I would use the clear primer product to clean off any stray purple crap for better look.

    I don't do any install either, but it looks great. Only thing that jumps out at me is the furnace intake might frost up a little with the water heater vent being even with it.

    dfelt;
    That SS gear clamp is not a gear clamp. It is a support bracket. It must be installed on all Payne installations according to the manufactures literature.
    When I went to get it at Carrier they said Not too many people put them in. But, the installation would not be CGA approved without that clamp.
    I did use the primer, it does not show up too well in the pictures. Embridge inspected and passed the installation.
    In Ontario, we Rarely get the snow levels and cold that you get. I am not anticipating any issues with the venting.

    The pictures don't do it justice, but the min clearance is 12" the distance between the exhaust of the furnace and intake of the hwt 14-16" I can not remember but I did note it when I installed it that it was more than min required.
