    Why not pull the cap off the top outlet and go in from there?

    Just courious, how do you clean the connector if you can't disconnect the stove?

    When I built my house I built a masonary chimney with a cleanout on ground level right at the T. I can clean from the ground to the top and I can go vertical to the stove from outside to the inside the house. This has worked very well for 25 years most with a smoke dragon BK. The new install with 8" liner has preformed perfect and I can clean everything except on top of baffel. the installer put on a double wall connecter that we had to back the stove to the connecter. Would be a lot of work to get plate off. I put a camera in the top and some creasote but not bad. I figure somday I will have to clean it. Nothing from the chimney ever gets in the area.

    FW No I'm not 2' @ 10 feet . My pipe exits 5' from the ridge and is 6 " above the ridge + the top .
    The chimney is 40+ feet in the air so no one ever really looked at it .
    Chimney sweep wont even go up .

    Even in hi wind I get no smoke in or puffing in the house .
    If my flue is warm the draft will suck tissue up the flue?
    My damper is cast with 2 hols the size of silver dollars .

    If i burn with out the damper I don't get above 300o with any air setting .
    I don't really ever get flame from the tubes only short bursts 5 or 6 " of flame at a time.
    and only if there are logs burning .
    Once the wood is all in flamed i see dancing flame between the tubes and the top of the wood .

    I had a HS 1 years ago and it would get hot and the fire would last longer because the fire box was much taller and i could stack
    4 /5 12" logs n/s
    This was much easier because there was less splitting .
    I broke down a bought a electric heater for the living room and plug it in 10 feet from the stove .
