I would like to install a tankless water heater in my condo.
All units currently have tank style water heaters that vent to a common vent pipe in each unit's laundry room, in the center of the building, that runs from the first floor through the second and third doors to the roof. My question is, can I use that common vent pipe, a pipe that is dedicated to water heaters only, to use to vent my tankless water heater? Direct venting is not an option for me due to water and gas line location. Thank you

Norman, thank you so much for your question. Without having a better idea of how the vent pipe makes it to the roof (straight up or bends while making its way up) I can not accurately advise you on this. If you are in the Houston area please feel free to give us a call and we will get you set up with a free consultation. Do you have a tankless purchased or are you still looking to buy?

A great feature to have.  If you don’t have a shut off valve ask the plumber to install one.  If you leave on vacation or have a leak you can easily shut off the water to your condo. Check with the association first for the insurance Compamy also.  Billy Gavigan
