    Does anyone have any experience with Olympia Chimney Supply flexible liners? How does their quality compare to other liners I've seen discussed in the forum like Homesaver, etc? This is the brand my local shop installs so I just want to make sure I know what I'm getting.

    Thanks,

    I got one... but at only 3 fires to date and no other liner experience...
    it would be hard for me to relay much info back to you about them.
    My guess would be they are all pretty much the same when made of like materials.
    I have the 316 Ti which is supposed to be able to handle 2100° F and multiple chimney fires,
    ...and has a lifetime warentee when you get it swept by a pro every year.

    Olympic only sells to people in the business so I would be willing to bet that the product is good quality. If it wasn't they probably wouldn't have been in business long.

    .005 and .006 - that is about 1/4 the thickness of rigid pipe.

    I'm certain this pipe compares well with similar thin-wall flex made by most others. Ventinox has been making liner for decades and it is .007 - which is 40% thicker than .005.
