combine tankless flues

keyotekeyote Posts: 15Member
Ive got a rental on top floor that i have started to build with a rheem 64 tankless unit under a future stair behind the bath room. its 3/5 vent goes right out a 13" brick exterior wall. directly under  floor, below im building my own unit with another bathroom and its own rheem 64  Id like to gang the two flues together and have only one wall penetration but rheem and metal fab are just too stupid to reach or answer questions in any way that instills confidence that some idiot is reading from a script in fact they dont even answer this question and refer you to a paid  service. anyway im aware of the issues but also think ive seen this done on large commercial jobs any ideas?

    tankless flues

    dont see anywhere on the link the question is addressed. i realize of course they must be fan powered but  a backdraft damper might solve that

    Eternal

    Check out this link. The Eternal brand of tankless water heaters can apparently have a common vent.

    So can many other tankless brands

    As long as they're serving the same domestic water system
