How to vent oil

New owners of an office in an old house. Took down the chimney venting the furnace. Got b-vent, stuck it out the side wall of the basement and terminated below the eave. This is what we found!

    Lucky the house didn't burn?  Sure looks like it runs dirty.  Am I wrong or is the soot likely to do that if this were safe?

    That's what I was going to say...

    but really, you would think that someone would have noticed this before it got looking like that?  Really?

    Looks like a few Field SWG's running Beckett AFG's with 70 degree Hago nozzles as a "Universal Nozzle". With serious carbon buildup on the end cone.

    B-Vent on Oil:

    B-Vent is an outstanding choice for oil venting.



    What State is this lovely uninspected gem located in?

    I'll bet the owners and installers were really proud of their piping Picasso.

    Well,

    We were in a hurry!

    It was easy!

    Why won't it work?

    Even this was more than we wanted to spend!

    It's going to cost how much to fix it? We did it for much less than that!

    You guys are trying to rip us off!

    That paint should have held up better than that. I won't use that brand again!



    You just can't dream this stuff up! Keep us posted on the outcome.
