The use of plastic venting systems on gas fired water heaters, furnaces and boilers has undergone a significant change. CSA B149.1 Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code now requires all special venting material to be certified to ULC S636 across Canada. IPEX addressed this market need with System 636, a fully certified flue gas vent system. Since the inception of System 636, IPEX has made numerous product line additions and extensions to now offer the most complete product offering in the market. Also, System 636 is very professionally represented by IPEX with sales, technical, code issues and training support. Front and centre to aid installers and inspectors is the System 636 Installation Guide. The contents of this guide are part of the certification process and contain many important aspects of installation to ensure successful, code compliant installations. Issues addressed in the Guide include support spacing, expansion and contraction, solvent cementing procedures and special installation and terminations. IPEX recommends that installers receive formal training on System 636 every 3 years to ensure proper installation methods are utilized at all times.
