    Hi Don (@redram),

    Thanks! Reviewed it up to the post by @Eaglehead dated 07/07/14 @ 6:00 pm.

    The PVC vent pipe extends approximately 2" above the roof surface prior to installation of the vent cap. We use a heavy rubber boot (see attached photo) where the pipe enters the tank. We install a coupler in the PVC line above the boot to prevent the possibility of the PVC line dropping in the tank. Most likely the pipe extends too far in the tank beyond the bottom of the boot, and needs to be shortened. That said, this is one for the dealer as suggested by other forum participants.

    Best regards,
    ~ Janice
