Workshop Exhaust extraction pipe workaround


Recommended Posts

Bandageman

Got a new alarm system in the house with an extra sensitive CO sensor in the garage where my gas boiler is situated. Problem is that’s where the wee car lives, so I had to devise a bypass exhaust extension. I was able to fashion this over a few weeks by trial and error out of my eBay habit. My experience might help others in same position, or just to avoid CO poisoning when running the car in their garage.

Parts:

2M length of wide bore silicon flexi pipe

”L” bend wide bore silicon pipe

Reducing silicon adapter for inside flexi pipe and L bend

high temp silicon to seal inside pipes

Clamps and large jubilee clips to secure pipes and L bend to exhaust edge

 

The above setup now allows me to work indoors with doors shut if engine is running without setting off CO alarm.👍

pm if anyone wants more info.

Good work!

 

We set off a similar alarm in the underground carpark beneath the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart in 2019! Not surprising with how long it take to get 4 Westies  moving with steering wheels, harnesses bluetooth headsets, satnav's and phones etc.

You could sell that as a “Trackday Silencer”.

I did think the fact it would need to move a disadvantage, then I thought you've got someone slow in mind, that it could work for 😉
