Hi All, So we purchase a Summers Heat Model 55 SHP 240L Pellet Stove from Lowes. We would like to install it in our basement, but are slightly confused about the regulations in regards to ground clearance. In the manual, it says that the Pellet Vent Pipe must be 3 feet from the ground. However, it does not specify if it is the actual pipe, or the termination of the pipe that must adhere to said clearance. This would actually make a huge difference for us, because the ground to the sill of the houses clearance is 3 feet. So if the minimum clearance to the actual pipe, and not the termination of the pipe must be 3 feet, we cannot even install in our basement. If I could bore a hole through my foundation at 2 feet, put the thimble in, extend the pipe out by 1 foot, and attach a 6 foot section at that point, we would be all set. Basically, the pipe would be 2 feet off the ground, but not terminated for another 6 feet up (due to the draft regulations, it has to be 6 feet, as this would be the 2nd elbow used) and that would also keep it at about 5 feet away from any window. Does this sound right? The only other thing I can think of doing is installing it the way that I want to (out at 2 feet) then digging a Pellet Pipe Moat around the pipe, so it is 3 feet above the ground level. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can send pics if anyone would like to see what we are trying to do here....Thanks!
