Plexi Vents

Plexi vents were installed in a lot of homes but most have been replaced and they are sold under a lot of different names plex-vent and terms similar to this are the most common. They are a very thing plastic and can fail, one of the common things to identify them is the funnel with the tube running out. These should be replaced when found.
