Re: Multiple Fuel Burning Appliances on Single Flue, Article 9.21.2.3.

With reference to your letter of April 20, 1989 regarding 2 fuel burning appliances connected to the same flue.

While your installation appears to conform to the 1980 B.C. Building Code, it definitely contravenes the 1985 edition, which is currently in force. We assume that the change was intended to correct problems, and that any possible benefits from the old requirements were also taken into consideration before making the change.

Under the circumstances we are unable to accept the 1980 Building Code for this 1989 installation.
