Guys,

Any GC/Plumber/HVAC person comment on this.

doing an installation for a range hood where previously there is no duct going outside but there is a duct going straight outside from one of the gas fireplace (no chimney involved stright horizontal duct outside).

The homeowner didn't want to install a duct (which is an easy option) as the hood wall is facing outside.

The home owner got someone to install a "Blue PVC Lay-Flat Discharge Hose" approx 1.5" diameter that connects to the fireplace duct (seems like proper sealing), but I have never seens this before, is this going to work if I installed the range hood that has 600-700CFM, wondering if anyone has seen this or have comments about it?

Garden hose would be better and give the cfm's more thrust thru the narrower pipe plus garden hose will not suck together like this blue one will

ok I guess you guys are to cool to answer :(
Range hood should not share the duct work with fireplaces period. The garden hose or any hose in this matter is not a replacement for the vent for your range hood. You are saying it is easy to vent it outside, just do it.

on a second though you might be trolling FaazHafid in this case you got me.
