I am planning to relocate my gas dryer to the center of my basement. The closest vent is in one of the walls 16ft/5m away. To reach it I would need to run an exhaust pipe horizontally, enclosed in the ceiling by drywall (so preferably no leaks).
What is the best material in this case? Any tips? Is moisture pooling in the pipe a concern?
Here is what I currently know:
PVC pipes +Can handle moisture -Combustible
Flexible metal foil +Not combustible -Might increase moisture pooling due to texture -Rust?
Sheet metal ducts +Not combustible +No moisture pooling -Leaks out of horizontal and lengthwise joints? -Rust?
