    SO I was going with a 45 degree then straight out horizontally for two years. The burn was clean and hot but the angle was weird the way my wall was next to the stove. So just wondering what anybody thinks of my new set up. I bought all new venting from Simpson, and went with adapter to a 90 then another 90 and straight out the wall. All clearances are more then met and I have an OAK. I had leaks on both 90's but have used high heat silicone and then foil tape. The leaks seem to be gone or very minimal now. I have smoke alarm like feet above the stove and CO alarm across the room. No issues in that area as well. So im asking, is two 90's then straight out with OAK safe and efficient/

    My P43 goes into a tee, up 4 feet, then a 90 out another 6-8 feet, all in 4" pipe. No issues.
    It comes down to length of run, and 3 verses 4 inch with friction loss and such.

    Harman book stated with extra elbows, or over 15 foot pipe, go to 4". They also prefer less than 48" horizontal run. Theere is a pipe formula out there, maybe somebody else has it.
