    I recently bought an Englander 25 pdvc pellet stove to replace my wood stove, and was planning on hooking into an existing masonry chimney(8" wood stove pipe), but I was told that I would have to run 3" or 4" pellet pipe the entire length on the inside of my chimney for the stove to vent properly. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much for the info Peggy.

    After calling Englander and asking them about the proper way to hook up the pipe(just for safety precautions). I hooked my stove up to the exsiting chimney by running 3" pipe to the chimney and then hooking into the 8" to 3" reducer at the thimble. I did not reline the chimney with 3" or 4" inch pipe the entire length of the chimney (as 1 of my local shops had told me I had to), and it drafts just fine! (Ive placed 2 Carbon Monoxide alarms in my house for verification).

    Once again, Thank you for the information.
