The Sideways Flue Diverter is an accessory that can be fitted to an external Rinnai continuous flow water heater. It is designed to expel combustion products in a sideways direction. The flue diverter is fitted with screws to the flue terminal.
Model selection is based on the INFINITY unit, refer to 'Suitable for' for further details.
Pictured is the A-Series sideways flue diverter. Refer gallery images below to see what an EF26 sideways diverter looks like on a unit, images 3 and 4.
Noise reduction, in particular with larger INFINITY models where the unit is positioned close to a neighbouring property.
Where there may be an obstruction such as a tree, fence, wall or other structure, that even though an INFINITY is installed with the required clearances, will perform more efficiently if the flue gases are cleared away from the obstruction.
Where clearance to an openable window or other building structure is tight, the clearance shifts to the point of discharge (close to the edge of the water heater case).
