Over the weekend we purchased a near new US Stove pellet stove for our house. We are planning on installing it in the basement and using an existing hole/thimble in the concrete wall for the flue pipe to exit. The question I have is that in reading the manual it says not to have more than 180 degrees of bends in the pipe...that being said here is my dilema. The pipe exits the stove approx 18 inches from the floor straight out of the back...and my thimble in the concrete wall is about 8 feet above that. I have no existing flue pipe outside. Would it be feasible to come out of the back of the stove with a 45, then straight up to another 45 going into the thimble...then a short piece of straight into a T, then up?? That's still 180 degrees, but its the only thing I can come up with at the moment. Worst part of it is, I am going to have to move the stove further out from the wall to be able to do the 45's. Am I on the right track? Thanks in advance!!
