    That is ICC pipe it is pretty good pipe, I am not sure why they would use the tape unless they figured it would leak smoke.....The ICC pipe has the red rubber high temp seal inside of it so I have yet to see them leak smoke so the tape has me very confused.

    ya i think my first installer was being overly cautious with the tape.

    and the brand is Piazzetta . not many sites out there with info. Anyone know a online parts supplier?

    Good luck with Piazzetta. Hope you never need a repair part.

    Hedgehog, Piazzetta has been in the US market twice. First time was in the 80's dealers were left hanging with broken stoves and no parts to fix. They went running back to Italy with their tail between their legs. Screwed the dealers. They were in the US market 5 years ago with gas fireplaces. Broken parts and the units would not work. Ran back to Italy with their tails between their legs again.

    I sense a pattern here

    Where's the love? I guess you're just not feeling it. This forum from my view is all about give and take. Some folks are a lot better at giving then they are at taking. Then again, some are as good at taking as they are at giving.

    Peace my friend :)

    I installed my Monia (Burgandy color) last week and fired it up on Friday evening. And we love it! We have a small house in NH (circa 1938) and it easily heats the entire first floor! I still have to play around with the settings/programming to make the best use of a bag of pellets. I used the specs in the owner's manual for the install specs and Duravent pipe for a corner installation, so you can't even see the vent pipe in the room where it was installed.

    Just received my Grey Monia, but hate the tile multi colored floor pad, going to trade in for square piece of black granite.

    Question for Donald Duck
    Did you receive the regular silver piping along with the unit anyway before going with Black Duravent piping? Don't know why these pellet stoves are coming with basement silver piping instead of something more admirable for the living room.

    I ordered just the stove, the piping was a separate purchase. Duravent can be purchased individual pieces at the home depot or as an install kit.

    You can save quite a bit of $$ buying it as plain galvanized and then paint it with satin Hi-Heat spray paint. Just needs to be pickled with vinegar before painting. Did mine 5 yrs ago and saved a lot of $$.....paint looks as good today as it did then.

    Pickled in vinegar?? Wtf!!! How did you pickle the piping? Or do you just wet them down with a sponge in vinegar?
    What does the vinegar do?
    Thanks

    They do make black pipe just saying...horrible install it is a sharp stove though. The paint will peel at the points it is taped. Have them get the black pipe. ICC is a great pipe there wood pipe is the best.
