E.W. Leonard At the Forefront of Venting Issue.


In light of recent events involving deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning due to failed venting of high efficiency equipment, we are providing our expertise and experience to officials outside of the industry.

In addition we are having ongoing conversations with the Connecticut Plumbing and Licensing Review Board on venting high efficiency equipment. In particular we have discussed the liability issues arising from using a plumbing material in an unapproved venting application. We have also educated them on the pros and cons of the various types of venting materials in general and polypropylene in particular. At E.W. Leonard, we are committed to safety in the industry as well as education.
