    I agree Scott and I am a Degreed Eng and Authorized dealer and service center with manufactures support and training. I also like to bring up these new products to see if they are accepted by the pros. If not I do not use them period.
    Thanks

    Another mention of Selkirk being undesirable. I'd really like to know what he doesn't like about their products. Maybe he has explained it here before but I haven't seen it. http://www.hearth.com/talk/index.php?posts/1452462

    cant speak for Scoot at all, but when in the biz, you tend to run into most of the brands available, use them, and you find that you prefer one brand over another after actually using them....used to use Simpson until I tried ICC.......its kinda like if you always eat hamburger you cant appreciate lobster......(till you try it)

    I totally understand but for what reason does he not like Selkirk? There has to be some reason. Just like there must be a reason why you like ICC over Simpson.

    ICC vs Simpson? Well, simple.....less leakage = less callbacks = happier customer, so ICC > Simpson, IMHO

    it will all come down to opinion.

    Thanks for the information. Now, I wonder what is so bad about Selkirk? I like my Dt setup.

    Good info, The DT system uses a 4" Diameter T and 4" piping up to a 4" to 3" reducer to the stove adapter. 4" Diam venting does not have as much pressure on the seams as 3" Diam venting so leakage is not as much of an issue. However they must not leak and be sealed appropriately! ! !
