    Hmm Sweet Tankless Install

    One of my guys and I were replacing a direct vent wall furnace in a little guest cottage with a tenant living in it. I went to take a leak and saw this fine installation right next to the toilet.

    Yeah, at the least they could've boxed it in.

    I'm trying to picture how a conventional water heater fit in there... unless they had to put the tankless in to accommodate the toilet.

    I am especially fond of the positive pressure PVC exhaust connected to the single wall vent with foil tape. Someone was probably very proud of their ingenuity.

    It’s actually double wall pipe.

    Perfect, that way it’ll be a couple years before the first wall completely rusts through and starts it working away on the second wall.

    As for the old tank, my bet is the original tank was a few feet to the left before that wall was put in, they removed the old for the Reno then put in the tankless. Don’t think the tank would have been so close to the window originally.
