looking for condensate vent cover


I know it's a federal law, the builders know it's a federal law, the city knows it's a federal law. They've just chosen to ignore it, for who knows what reason. Maybe now that 80s are out completely they'll comply, but considering they've been putting them into new construction for the past year I'm not going to hold my breath. You can send me some of that -32C, but only if it comes with clear blue skys- it's been raining here for weeks!

The law took effect Jan 1, 2010.
BC, nice place to visit but I get severe depression if I don't see the sun in 3 days, seriously. Thats what happens when you are used to the Prairie landscape/big skies/sunsets. I lived in Calgary and when the sun went below the top of the mountains it was like the lights went out. Lots of people in Calgary have no A/C for it cools off quickly in the evening when the sun disappears and is windy and very dry there.

Cheers

80s have been forbidden in new construction since Jan 1 2009, this years law bans them outright.

Grainger has CVs... but what size? Can't tell how they size them.

Comes in 2" and 3" inch models.

The dimensions of my exhaust is 2" I.D. The intake has a 4" O.D.

Thoughts? Hints?

Much thanks again!

You will need to buy the entire thing($$$$). And then just use the end cone.

Without it. Most likely the wind is blowing the exhaust fumes back into the intake pipe. And causing a flame failure.

Another solution as a temp fix. is to get 2-PVC 90 ells, and a 12" long piece of 2" PVC(guessing your vent pipe is 2") And attach one ell to 90 the exhaust up or to the side. The 12" piece to extend it away from the intake. And use the other 90 to direct the vent fumes from the house.

Generally, they should not exhaust under a deck.
If you can't find the correct piece, Beenthere's suggestion makes the most sense.
