    No, it would be dangerous.

    Like the guys said, it's against code.

    If you bought your stove new, it should have come with a manual
    that covers the most common installations and most everything
    you need to know. The pipe to be used is pellet vent.
    If you bought used and don't have a manual, most stove mfg's
    provide manuals in pdf format on their websites that you can download.

    A solid fuel appliance needs a dedicated flue.

    Thanks to all of you for the replies.I was told that I could run it to the same pipe/chimney and wanted to check with you guys first.
    zeta,I bought it new and it has the disc and manual with it.
    It looks just like the one in your avatar.
    Thanks again guy.
