    Had the Monia installed wile i was at work to day. installer added an extra clean out (ugly) then left a chit floater in the toilet.

    The installers are coming back at my request to remove the top clean out and replace it with an elbow and paint the pipe black

    On my end the pad needs to be centered and the wall finished with stone and paint but the stove runs despite the cosmetics

    Quick impressions on the stove....

    Very quite
    very nice looking in person, and quality fit and finish
    nice flame hight , even on low heat settings
    Dirty glass after a half a bag of pellets
    great set features for time of day use

    What's up with the taped joints. Something is definitely not right with that vent pipe. Hate to tell you but, those guys that installed are hacks. Why would you put that ugly cleanout where they did. I'm guessing that's what they had kickin around. I think I would make them remove that vent and put good quality instead.

    The stove itself looks good.

    Good Luck

    Hope they flush the toilet when they come back to fix the piping -- I agree with others that it looks sketchy. imacman is right on about the surge protector.

    The stove is gorgeous and will make a wonderful addition to your home. What was the cost installed?

    the install company said the stove would come with a wett cert. so im assuming the pipe used would be up to code/standards. albeit ugly.

    once the top clean out is removed and an elbow installed in its place and painted black im hopeing it will look alot better.

    Where are you located? Is this a UL approved stove in the United States?
    1.) That pipe is hideous
    2.) The installer really put tape on the joints?
    3.) What brand is that pipe?

    I am almost speechless on this.

    Are there any labels on the pipe that you can look at, or even snap a pic & post it......we're all concerned about that install.

    also is that tape 2" or 1 1/2 " wide . if it's 2" it's probably just aluminum vent tape not high temp flue tape .

    I do know Canadian Code is much more strict than US code, I am not familiar with it. I would have them back at your house, asap.

    No Sir, you need proof that it was done correctly. Aye! You live there with your family. I would hope they come first.
