Inspectors are only supposed to enforce code, not write it or interpret it. We all know all Inspectors have one thing or another that they enforce more than others but it shouldn't be anything that isn't in the book.

Sometimes it's not worth arguing. I would press the issue if it was an isolated incident but it's becoming more and more of a theme at least around here. Even the supply house guys are pushing the use of CPVC vs the PVC for flue gas appliances. As a matter of fact the Crown Phantom series of condesing boilers come factory with a manditory 3' piece of CPVC for the vent before you convert to regular PVC.
