    FWIW i applaud the fine work of your hubby and firefighters everywhere, we in the industry would prefer a different catalyst to set them in motion

    was thinking it really loud the whole phone call but one has to show some degree of decorum in my job, even if the person on the other end does not. heck the lawyer thing doesnt bother me, we have them too. ive had customers actually threaten to drive down here and kick my "fanny" i ask if they need directions.(politely) :mad: and remind them to bring the stove so we can fix it for them. by the time the sheriff lets them go we should have it up and running properly;)

    lol, yeah, that was pretty special (and honestly, a true story) it can be scary sometimes.

    had a guy call in once with a stove with a "lazy fire" said was hooked up by the book, asked about the venting , response as described was no problem (chimney installation into a 6 inch flue single story) asked about the oak, guys says "youre gonna love this" (i cringe) was routed as follows; 2 inch PVC off the back of the stove to the wall, 90 down to the floor , 90 to the right runs about 5 ft comes to doorway elbows up, runs to top of doorway across elbows down back to floor then to corner of room elbows around corner another few ft below a window, elbow up elbow out through a pane he removed and finally one more elbow to keep the rain out total of 10 ninety degree elbows , all done in 2 inch PVC total run was like 30 ft of total pipe.

    had the guy disconnect the OAK and you could literally HEAR the exhaust blower pick up, guy looks , says "the stoves burnin like a sonofagun!" we ended up having the guy go down into his crawlspace and route a 3 inch metal straight over under the house and out was only about 10 ft or so long and with 3 inch it pulled fine.
