    How high is the max snow level in your area... And that horizontal run is long enough it could probably be pushed up a few inches and strapped to get it a bit higher without stressing the joints much.

    There is not much snow in this area, so that is not a concern, but if you read the install guides they say a min. 12" above snow line, so the snow line is the roof here, that puts the 12" from the roof at a min.
    This 3 to 4" min. to the roof.
    About the horizontal run, both slope AWAY from the unit, so in the flue what happens to the condensed water in the pipe? If water gets in the Intake, where does it end up?

    Get some all-round and force the concentric up til it slopes back towards the unit... Will probably get you 6" more height above the roof also

    i think you are mis-interpreting the install instructions. I highly doubt you would ever get 12 " of snow on that roof in Texas! MAINTAIN 12 IN.
    (18 IN. FOR CANADA)
    MINIMUM CLEARANCE
    ABOVE HIGHEST
    ANTICIPATED SNOW
    LEVEL. MAXIMUM OF
    24 IN. ABOVE ROOF.

    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    when the installer gets there, do me a favor and tell them to straighten the "bazooka tube" out.

    I HATE a termination that penetrates a roof and isn't perfectly plumb.

    for the record (ya I know, nobody cares) I use the concentric kit when penetrating a roof and the oval wall termination when side venting.

    The bazooka tube sticks out to far on a sidewall termination.

    Engineers are people who make mistakes, just ask the airbag engineers with all the recalls. If engineers never make mistakes why do they issue service bulletins and recalls?
    this actually a pretty funny statement, these kits have been around for AT LEAST 20+ years. I think they have this figured out

    The engineers at the manufacture approve of it because they show it in the install manuals.

    That is one of the reasons for this post, but everyone got their panties in a bunch over the concentric vent issue. the vent pipes are touching the flex AND they slope away from the unit. But I guess all that doesn't matter if you use a concentric vent kit....

    Just for giggles I checked the comfort sight, on 2 random gas furnace install manuals, they both show the concentric kits, Trane also has a part number for theirs.

    LOL, you're the one sounding the alarm that this was a terrible install

    Found this in an attic. Both the fresh air intake and the flue pipe tied together. Was there on a social visit.
    you had no clue what you were looking at and yet it's all of us that got "our panties in a bunch" trying to help you out?
