    Exhaust fan and furnace vent tied together

    Wish the pics could show it better. Her soon to be ex husband is a licensed carpenter, electrician, plumber.
    I got a call because water was coming out of a vent. Wasn’t sure if she meant a duct or a vent. He had tied the exhaust fan right into the vent with a sanitary tee. Pretty ingenious for an idiot. All exhaust was coming back into the house.
    It may have halfway worked if he didn’t have a sag in the pipe right after the tee. It may have only halfway killed them that way.
    Idiots! I see idiots.
    Heading back tomorrow to cut out walls and turn it back on minus the exhaust fan and minus the sag.

    He built that room and installed the vent so he didn’t have to go outside to smoke. Did I mention I see idiots? Idiots that put food on my table, though.

    I once had a guy that paid me to install three exhaust fans in his rec room so that he couldn't smell the cat's litter box. I would have just moved the litter box but who am I to argue with money?

    Never understood litter box placement in some houses. Always find next to furnace. Wtf. Spread that smell thru the house, really ? Daughter wanted a cat. Litter box went in bathroom. Why not human litter box is there. Makes more sense. Unless you have a weird cat that wants to come and cop a squat with you.
