    Vent termination code

    Hey Yall.

    Im going to be installing a tankless water heater and Ive been reading up on the codes.

    One in particular Im a bit confused about is
    #4 in this subsection

    804.3.4 Horizontal Terminations
    1
    2..
    3
    4. The vent termination point shall not be located closer than 3 feet (914 mm) to an interior corner formed by two walls perpendicular to each other.


    Now, how I read that sounds like you cannot install the vents within 3 ft of any corner, interior or exterior.

    What Im hoping is that it means is you cant install them within 3 ft of an inside corner on the exterior of the building but you can next to an outside corner on the exterior.

    Im pretty limited in options of places to vent and where I need to vent is in the corner of the garage.

    Did this make sense to anyone?

    You might want to reread the rules on diy. This forum doesn't allow us to offer diy advice.
    If you are having this professionally installed I expect someone could help you determine if the proposed installation is correct but that wouldn't be me because I don't know.
    Be safe.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
