The 3/4 pipe will provide enough gas provided that it does not have a lot of elbows in the run. The more elbows you have, the less gas you have at the end of the run.

I recommend that you call the company which provides you with the gas and have them come out and look at your problem. They will be able to analyze your situatioin and make a recommendation to you. This is a free service. Good luck with it.

Have 75 gallon gas water heater. Can I run 90 PVC off top power vent without vertical PVC first? Have Richmond unit.


1) I believe you can immediately elbow the PVC pipe.
There is a limit for how many elbows can be used between blower and termination, and limit is determined by diameter of PVC pipe.

2) Copy following link for venting resources and typical Rheem and Richmond power vent manuals, and diameter-elbow pdf from Bradford White.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#venting

3) Richmond is Rheem. Product manual will show specifications for venting.
Product warranty is voided if installation does not follow specifications shown in manual.

I PURCHASED A DESA RADIANT HEATER AT A GARAGE SALE, IT WORKS BUT IS IT VENTLESS AND IT IS A MODEL 0630545


I would really like to help you determine what you have. However, the model number you listed is not a DESA model number. I think you may have listed the Serial Number instead. DESA/Vanguard/Comfort Glow wall heater model numbers start with 2 to 3 letters then 4 to 5 numbers.

However, to visually tell if it's Vent-free (Vent-less) look for a round hole for a vent pipe connection and/or look at the manufacture's data plate on the side or rear of the heater. It will tell you whether it's Vented or Vent-free. If it doesn't have a 3' round hole for a vent pipe, it's Vent-free.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 3 ft stainless double wall chimney that is going thru a ceiling/roof in my garage. there were no instructions on installation. how is this secured? Pls thx Jer


You can use metal strapping with short self-tapping sheet metal screws also where it penetrates roof a metal collar on inside should be used and a roof collar approved for B-wall vent pipe to keep water from leaking inside on outside on the roof.You can penetrate outside of B-wall vent pipe with short screws to secure the pipe just don't penetrate both pipes.this outside pipe is just a insulator to keep heat from transferring through pipe.

I have a wall mount vent free heater and a 10 gal propane tank how do hook it up so it will work


First off, Dave, the tank cannot be inside the house, motor home, camper, garage, etc. By the way, I believe your 10 gallon tank, is what's called a 40LB cylinder. Anyway, 10 gallons is not going to last very long, if the heater you plan to install is 20,000 Btu output or higher. If it's going in a bedroom, the maximum Btu output can not exceed 10,000 Btu's.

To install one, you'll need 1/2" flexible copper gas piping. An in-line LP Gas regulator, that has the capacity to carry whatever the maximum Btu output of you heater is. In addition, you will need a 1/2 NPT to 3/8" Flare nipple to go into the back of the heater. Assorted Flare Nuts in assorted sizes for the gas line connections.

Tools needed: Flaring tool, 2 adjustable wrenches, Phillips Head Screw Driver & Leak Detector Solution. To make sure it's done correctly, a Mechanical/Plumbing Permit from you city or county's Building Inspection Department. And last, but not least, a friend that has a lot of knowledge in the installation of Vent-free Supplemental Gas Heating Appliances.

If installed properly, these appliances are very safe. If installed improperly, they can be very dangerous.

Need a blanket for Rheem Water Heater model #22VRP75.


You have 75 gallon gas water heater.
I install water heater insulation 3 ways:
1) Easiest: buy ready-made blanket from Lowes and use duct tape
2) Harder: wrap heater in ordinary fiberglass insulation and use tie wire
3) Hardest: Build a box out of blue styrafoam >> leaving room for air intake for gas water heater, and space around vent pipe

Instructions for gas water heater:
Do not cover TP valve.
No insulation is put over gas valve or air intake.
No insulation touches vent pipe.
Remember the gas water heater has to breathe air into the burner, and aftter combustion takes blace, hot gases escape so extra space is left around hot vent pipe to avoid fire.

Find age of Rheem: look at 3rd and 4th digit of serial number, for example 06 was manufactured in 2006.

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have a cozy gas heater in my converted garage, and it won't stay lit any longer. I light it, but by the next morning the pilot is out and the room is cold. What part would I need to fix it? Thank...


if you can re-light the unit all parts are good,if the vent pipe is ran thru the side wall and up this is the problem the vent temps on these unit are low which can not over come the cold air and can not start a draw ans backs into the unit and puts out the pilot.
