Flexible B Vent vs Code (on wtr htr)


Using flex made this job soooooo much simpler.

Two years ago while doing some other work I had the inspector in.
Nice guy. Very helpful btw...

He said that the Flex was NOT allowed here.
(City of Winston Salem in Forsyth County)

I really don't want to have to buy all new stuff and re-do this.
Let alone having to cut up 4 ells and have all those extra joints...

Q: How can I protest or whatever?
or maybe the code has changed since then?

Thanks

se B-Flex
anywhere B-Vent is
required, except where pipe
penetrates the structure; walls,
floors, ceilings, roof


Any of these areas penetrated use rigid.

I think this is what is going on.

The WH is in the utility room...
I hard piped through the wall (with thimble)
into another tempered area...
THEN I started the flex to get around a build out on that side.

When I asked about the GWB chase I was thinking about...
he might have assumed the flex went thru the wall. (it doesnn't).


Thanks.
