    Could this cap be used for a flue pipe water heater, specifically a 3-inch gas Whirlpool water heater?


    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2012

    Answer:
    Typically, gas water heaters use type B vent pipe, so this would be the proper type of cap for your needs.

    However, I cannot speak as to the compatibility between this cap and the rest of your existing pipe. We do offer a cap that is compatible with almost all brands of B vent. A Metal-Fab cap should do the trick.

    A few years ago we had a Heatilator direct vent gas fireplace put in. Since then, we have discovered that every time we have a rainstorm (which, granted, isn't that often in Phoenix), lots of water leaks through the vent and accumulates underneath the fireplace (where the ignition controls are). We haven't had much luck in getting anyone to try to fix it. I'm attaching a picture of the outside connect in the hope that you can make a recommendation to me. Note that I am fix-it challenged. Thank you very much for any suggestions you might have.

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, horizontal installation can run into this issue and it can be difficult to correct. The main issue is trying to determine when the leak occurs. If it occurs every time it rains, you will most likely need some sort of rain guard to be installed above the termination, in order to redirect water on either side of the termination.

    If the leak only occurs when the wind is blowing a certain direction, like toward the house, an exterior wind guard may need to be installed around the termination. I would like to suggest installing both to cover either issue, however the use of both can cause to much of a venting restriction. You can see an example of our wind guard here:

    We do not currently stock a rain guard for a horizontal termination, so that would need to be fabricated locally.

    I cannot get it straight whether we have a horizontal termination or a vertical termination. I thought it was vertical because the opening of the vent is vertical and flush to the outside wall, but now I'm thinking maybe it's a horizontal termination because the pipe leading to the vent is horizontal. If you can clear this up for me it will help me make sure I am moving in the right direction here and ordering the right parts. Thank you!

    Answer:
    Those terms simply refer the position of the cap of your venting system. If your termination cap is coming out of a wall, you then have a horizontal termination. If you have more of a traditional chimney that extends through your roof, then you have a vertical termination. From your emails, it appears that you do indeed have a horizontal termination.
