    Let me start by saying this is the best site ever. I've found so much useful info from pellet brands to stove reviews etc. Everyone here helped me so much in making my stove and pellet purchase. I will have my stove (Breckwell p23) delivered in a few days and had a question on the install. Can someone tell me how long of a piece of pipe I would need for a horizontal install. I am doing a corner install. I purchased a adapter,thimble,45 degree elbow, and horz. cap. I did also buy a 3 ft piece of pipe but now I think it may be to long. Does anyone know how long this pipe should be? I don't want it to stick out to far because it can be seen on the front of the house but I do want it correct. Duravent says 6" of clearance plus horz cap is ok, but I want to be sure. Thanks in advance!!!

    I don't know what the least amount of distance is, but the further that it sticks out, the less soot you will have all over the side of your house.
