Vent Pipe in Chimney?
« on: April 16, 2011, 12:20:27 AM »

Here is a connection to a chimney that was done years ago that is a very dangerous and illegal connection. All vents for plumbing need to penetrate or go to the roof level outside without connecting into a chimney that serves the purpose for exhaust gasses for a furnace or water heater.  :o
Too many things can go wrong in that situation and create many hazards, like for one big one: Methane gas found in plumbing systems, sewer gases are highly flammable!!!!
