    Going back to the vent termination - the intake and exhaust MUST be on the same wall. Try to get the elbow to the vertical pipe for the exhaust as close to the wall as possible (within 6" or so).

    Get the intake up at least 12" above the ground. Also, there has to be at least 12" between the intake and exhaust to prevent cross contamination.

    Terminate the exhaust with a 45, then short piece of pipe cut parallel to the ground. I know it looks wierd, and can collect water but IBC has tested this configuration and it presents the least issues with wind. Works like a champ.

    A pic from the HC/DC install manual showing this is below.
