The sideways flue diverter is an accessory that can be fitted to an external Rinnai INFINITY. 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 Rinnai INFINITY unit, refer 'Tech Specs' for further details.
Please note: Pictured is the A-Series sideways flue diverter. Refer gallery images to see what an EF26 sideways flue diverter looks like on a unit.
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).
The flue diverter MUST remain as a permanent fixture as removal could mean the water heater position no longer complies with AS/NZS 5601.1.
