$133.00 for this kit.
I need to know what happens when it rains hard using the generator?
Has anyone owned one of these that would know?
Does the water settle in the elbow of the main exaust pipe?
Drilling a hole to let rain drain seems to defeat the purpose.
Could I use a 90 degree at the top?

Much to do about nothing. How much water do you think enters the pipe?
There is not a solid connection between venturi piping and exhaust pipe, there is an air gap between the two.
The negligible amout of water entering from the top will simply drain at the bottom

Well for one thing, the heat from the genny evaporates the little water that MIGHT get in.

Have had mine for 20 years and still works great, rain or shine!

The water will pass through and drop to the ground since there is no closure between the genturi and the exhaust pipe.

I've used a GenTuri for years including during a couple of very heavy tropical storms. The generator continued operating normally and any small amount of rain that entered the exhaust elbow was either blown back out or dried by the hot exhaust. No drain hole needed.

Not a GenTuri issue as it draws air in at the elbow for cooling, hence water can drain. There might be some exposure to water in the exhaust pipe but I don't think it can get into the gen engine. I can check in about 2 weeks.

Just to add to what others have already said. Rain drops very seldom fall exactly straight down. In addition, the plastic sections of the GenTuri are not likely to be exactly vertical. Because of these factors, nearly all rain drops entering the top of the VenTuri will strike the wall of the plastic pipe before reaching the bottom, then run down the inside to the pipe and drip onto the ground at the air gap.

I think you can safely cross this off your list of things to worry about.
