I have an existing Heat & Glo Model 6000TR with 5X8 (actually 8 5/8) that has either back or top vent. Presently it is vented directly out the back. Due to some remodeling I need to move the vent higher.
Could I use a "snorkel" to do this and which one? Is the advertized 8 inches actually 8 5/8? I do have an overhead soffet so I need at 18 inch separation from that so I need a dimension from the C/L of the outlet pipe to the Top of the snorkle (or some other reference) to ensure a proper installation.

Answer:This unit measures 36" tall. It is designed to be used with 5 x 8 direct vent components. However, being made by FMI, it would work best with other FMI components.
