      We need to revent our hot water tank. We live in the norteast where it is very cold in the winter. Our vent gets very cold and the draft comes in instead of going out. Any help? We have learned that we need to use double walled pipe. How much and how high> Thank you, John

      John not knowing where you live and localities use various codes I would strongly suggest looking into your local code in your area.

      About down drafts (Spillage) look into the possibility of having a “SWISS CAP” installed

      I have found these caps do stop down drafts and look great.
