    How long will a B-vent normally last in use with a natural gas furnace and hot water heater, before the whole system would need to be replaced?
    1 Answer
    Most type B gas vent pipe should last decades before possible replacement, though we cannot speak for brands/types we do not sell.  This assumes the pipe is properly installed and being used on a suitable appliance.

    Do you need or is there a sealer for the joints of type B vent pipe?

    1 Answer
    Most current pipe brands do not require any sealant, but this will depend on the particular brand you use and your appliance - the appliance may call for sealant, at least on the flue collar.
