Guidelines for Proper Venting Installations
Elbow Installation Tips
To ship more efficiently, all Dryer-Ells are built to nest and assemble with a quick twist and snap. It is important to tape both the connection joint and the seams where the two sections of each Dryer-Ell assemble. You may find links to full install instructions for each model below.
- Bend all connection tabs almost straight up before twisting the two sides together to ensure a snug fit. Then flatten them to secure the sides.
- Always tape the seams between the two sides as well as the ends where the Dryer-Ell connects to straight pipe.
- For run-length restrictions follow either the manufacturer's guidelines or the table of equivalent lengths for elbows: do not mix and match the two.
