I'm installing a power-vent water heater, and am considering ways to
route the venting. The easiest and most direct crosses the PVC exhaust
tube about 2" below the gas supply line for the stove. Will I run into
any problems with the proximity of the two? Is there code that deals
with this situation?

heater. The manufacturer will specify proximity to other materials, length
of venting, allowed number of turns, termination clearance and details.

combustibles, or the code would have specific requirements for clearance.
Nothing to worry about. Only thing to consider is the location of the
