Director's Advisory FS-106-07 - Clause 8.14.10 Interpreted
« on: June 30, 2007, 07:31:13 PM »
Clause (8.14.10) - The flue gas discharge opening for an outdoor swimming pool heater shall terminate not less than 10 ft (3 m) from any building opening.

Quote
Clause 8.14.10 of the CSA B149.1-05 Code requires a distance of 10 feet from a building opening to a flue gas discharge opening of a pool heater.

TSSA will allow the location of the discharge opening within 10 feet of a window that is non-openable. Nonopenable is interpreted as a window that either has fixed glass or a window that has been designed as openable, but has been rendered as non-openable by installing screws which fix the window shut, sealing the joints with a compound such as silicon and permanently removing the mechanism designed to open the window.
In addition, a permanent label, suitable to the environment shall be affixed to the window stating:

WARNING

“This window is non-openable. Making it openable may create a carbon-monoxide hazard”.
The word “WARNING” shall be a minimum of ¼-inch (6.4 mm) in height. All other words on the label shallbe a minimum 1/8-inch (3.2 mm) in height.

Also a dryer vent, when connected to either a gas or electric dryer, IS NOT considered a building opening.
