Faulty Water Heater

June 27, 2011

The homeowner installed this water heater himself. He did not realize that he was causing a back up of the carbon monoxide emissions from the unit due to not only the wrong and too long flue pipe, but also the wrong unit entirely.

This type of unit requires that it have a blower on the top that takes the emissions and forces them out the side vent.

The unit is more expensive, but it is the correct one to be used.
