    Search "Lint-Eater" here.

    Many here have one, or the "Soot-Eater" for pellet stoves. Both work well around bends.

    (Lint-Eater is for a 4" Dryer vent, but I have both 3" and 4" pellet vent systems and it works great. Also works great on the dryer vent, so its Win-Win)

    Lint eater at lowes, you can also buy the extra extensions for longer runs.

    I use the Soot Eater. It bends through 2-90 deg elbows. Works very well.

    Yes. The 4" brush works in a 3" vent. I have two 3" vents and one 4". It does all of them.

    The brush is a very flexible bristle brush.
