    I'm getting the Material ready for the installation of my 13-NC Englander. I'm going with a Through-The-Wall Kit.

    My question is, do I have a choice between Double-Wall and Triple-Wall?

    Or is the 9 Inch Pipe that is included in the Kit automatically Triple?

    The Kit I'm looking at doesn't specify.

    Thanks

    Bill

    What 9 inch pipe are you talking about? You will have the choice between the two. I went with Duratech doublewall. It is only 8 in. diameter compared to 10 in. for the triple wall.

    Yes, you should have a choice, but we need to know what kit you are referring to. What is the part number?

    Appreciate the replies.

    The 9 Inch Pipe that I am referring to is the one that is included with the Kit, but it isn't 9 Inch in Diameter, it is 9 Inches in Length.

    That kit is set up for DuraPlus, triple-wall. Here is a DuraTech thru the wall kit. http://www.hartshearth.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=593&idproduct=6235

    When comparing prices be sure that there is a match in components. The difference between stainless and galvanized is really big. Also note it is often less expensive to go straight up through the house.

    Appreciate the links.

    As much as I would like to pipe it straight through, in my case I'm going to need to go through the wall.

    I plan on calling the manufacturer and suppliers for any extra details or questions I may have, but also wanted to run it by you all for some non-bias suggestions and opinions.

    I'm trying to decide on whether to go Double Wall or Triple Wall, and Stainless Steel or Galvanized. My goal is to do a good job, and have it last, but yet with still being on a tight budget. I've got some money to spend on it, but want to spend no more than reasonably necessary.

    Also don't mind buying my supplies from a vendor, but as long as the shipping is possibly free or if the if whole deal with the shipping charge would be less than local. I had plans on buying it at Lowes. Not only are they close by, but I have a business account and get an extra 5%, but I recently learned that Lowes switched brands and no longer carry DuraVent. My next local choice is Northern and I may be able to use discount coupons there.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Galvanized is certainly a way to save here. It will not last as long perhaps, but I would expect at least 15 yrs of service, perhaps longer if well maintained. The interior liner is still stainless.

    In past dealings I have found Sean at Dynamite Buys to be a straight shooter. Get a quote, their pricing is competitive and they ship quickly for free.

    OK, thanks. It will give Sean a call. The Galvanized sounds plenty good enough for my application.

    Now to decide on Double Wall or Triple Wall ?

    Is Double Wall good enough for my little 13-NC Englander?

    Also can you mix it? I'm thinking Triple Wall where it goes through the wall and Double Wall everywhere else. Or maybe Triple on the inside and through the wall and Double on the outside.

    Double-wall DuraTech is fine. It's what I have in my home. Don't mix.
