    Our vents are sized based on the diameter of your pipe - for a 6" diameter pipe, you would want to order our 6" size vent.

    Yes - we would recommend lightly scouring the surface first and using Rust-Oleum brand paint - you should not need to prime before painting

    Product arrived on time and was well constructed. Replaced original cheap builder grade plastic vent caps. Hope to not bother with this for many many years. Will be ordering 6” vent caps for ERV as well. Highly recommend Famco and their products.

    Product as described, but the damper hangs askew and flap in the wind, making a loud noise.

  15. Christopher D. (verified owner)

    Exactly what I needed, Made in America, for a fair price.

  16. TR (verified owner)

    Needs a gasket on the flapper to provide a seal, other than that it is great.

    • Kavan Martin (store manager)

      Thank you for the comments on this product! We currently offer the foam gasket on a few products. Such as the WVEB product line. This is something we will have to keep in mind for the future on our product offerings.

    Hinge for damper is a little sketchy but will probably withstand repeated use.
