that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard
so fucking throw a fan in there
moisture is removed from hot air as it passes through the water first
it's just a basic fundamental fact of a natural process
keep on wasting heat Streetch
Even if you did stop water vapor from being in the exuast with the
bucket idea, which I dought, you are adding poison from burnt Ng, Co,
mercaptain, sulfer etc. Indoor air can be bad enough in tight houses
without adding more junk to breath.
Nah....you keep fooling yourself. I like it when people do that and go to
sell their home later...
Ive got pics of one that the people did that....amazing. Foolish...
BTW..I can afford to run my dryer.
Don't know about pipe, but I've seen vents to the outside with louvers
that open when there is output and close when it stops. I wouldthink
Sears or HomeDepot or any appliance store would have this.
I don't have this, but I have an indoor/outdoor box, and when I have
set if for indoors, which is any time cold enough that I might run
the furnace, the door inside the box goes up and closes off the duct
to the outside vent. It has a removable lint screen to keep lint from
blowing around the basement.
When the door is down, it closes off the output to the inside of the
house and routes everything the outside. No lint screen in that
direction but there is one in the dryer itself.
I think this all works pretty well, but I suppose I should check if
cold air is leaking in. (I'm around there a lot however and haven't

I just put one of these in a clients kitchen vent:
She had one of those louver type vents but it leaked like crazy. She
had rags stuffed in the louvers and every time she used the stove she
had to run outside and pull out the rags, replacing them after.
The unit works great and the people were very nice to deal with. She
thinks it looks cool and needless to say is very happy. We actually
ordered 2 and the other one is waiting to go on her dryer vent. If you
order 4 shipping is free.
That is it, www.batticdoor.com louvers wont seal anything ,
batticdoor closes and drops down an inch for a fairly positive seal.
Louvers leak...Imaging taking 3" pvc vertical, and dropping a closed
31/6" cap on it, it seals, when dryer blows air pressure raises it, non
powered louvers can`t ever provide a positive seal of airflow. and dryer
types ive seen are cheap by design and build.
