    Anyone ever use copper pipe to connect to the chimney?
    No seams to leak and very tight fit at to 90.
    I can't find any problems in using it except for the cost but as I am a plumber
    I do have access to the pipe and joint
    oh and the copper ;)

    Copper connector shure would rob your chimney of some heat, possibly affecting draft... and it would discolor pretty bad too..

    I can't imagine why it would not work.....

    Of course, no soldering.....

    and joints should run downhill...or else be well sealed.
