I haven't had any problems with it, but one service guy claimed it required 1 inch clearance around the pipe. Although the same guy said there is "indications that there is cracks in my heat exchanger too", which there was not.

I live in Canada, but I'm sure they have similar rules in the States about this.

Is that just sheetrock?
If so then just use a drywall saw to open it up that extra 1/2".
Might take all of 30 seconds.

It supports the frame of the door thats right beside it. I decided to say screw it and cut a big chunk out of it. I'm going to have to cement nail down the framing to the floor I guess, its pretty flimsy now.
