Working with B-Vent pipe for WH vent

I think the real measuring stick should be how long the HWT that one installs... lasts.
not bragging at all telling the man that it don"t take 2-3 hours to install tank... thanks though did see where I said it takes us 40 minutes....not my intention...edited my comment....
