basement bathroom fan

Post by Brett » Tue Aug 20, 2013 11:57 am

What is the best way to vent a basement bathroom fan to the outside. Simply use the steel tubing without insulation or that flexible insulating all-in-one sleeve stuff.

Thanks for all the help. Passed my electrical inspection.

Brett.

PS, Never get up at 5 am. Nothing ever works out during the day by getting up at 5 am.

Nice job on the electrical!
For the bath fan , use the insulated flex duct , try not to have to much excess length and use gradual bends if you need any( or at least try). This pipe is good but it is a little restrictive because of the ribbed texture it has.

Shannon,

Do you know of any aftermarket back-flow protectors
that can be installed on the exhaust duct, because
those plastic ones on the fans usually are lame.

Thanks!
Justin

I like to use an exterior vent that has a flapper .
