    I am looking to put a 4" liner down an 8" x 8" chimney for a pellet stove installation in my basement family room. I have an 8" thimble in the chimney. I have seen instuctions to drop a liner down and put a tee in to come through the thimble. How is the tee suppose to work for clean out. The tee would be below grade so an access door is not a possibility. I was assuming I could bend the flexible liner through the thimble, convert to rigid pipe and go the rest of the way to the stove with that with a tee at the stove. Does this sound practical or do I need another plan?

    That is what both me and Fourm member Todd did with 5.5" liners for our wood stoves and they work fine. Just be very slow and careful making the bend into the thimble so as not to kink the liner. No need for a tee on the pipe since it is just as easy to just pull the pipe and brush it out at cleaning time.
