    I'm considering getting a flexible liner to run down the existing chimney, turn 90 degrees to exit out the firebox and connect to the back of my Jotul. I just don't know how it would connect. Would it simply turn that 90 degree out the firebox and run right into the back of the stove or would I possibly use something else to go from the bottom of the chimney out to my stove?

    Any pics of your setup to accomplish this would be great!

    Hi -

    I would use a Tee. Then when it is cleaning time you can tape a plastic bag at the bottom and catch the crud. Otherwise you'll need to have a way to get the crud though the stove, or remove the stove. Not fun.

    All the best,

    So terminate the 6" liner into a 6" tee? Would I slide the end of the liner onto the tee and maybe use sheet metal screws to hold it in place? Would I just let the tee hang suspended from the liner?

    I could then use my existing 6" doublewall pipe to go from the tee to the back of the stove.

    Basicly yes. Most Tees have a snout that comes off. It can be screwwed or riveted with stainless steel and lowered down with the liner, then add the snout on, or do it as you described. I added a bracket that supports the Tee but only because I could get at it as it is in the fireplace.

    Those Jotul's as very nice stoves.

    Enjoy!

    Our ss liner is held onto the tee
    with a large clamp that slides over
    both the liner and the tee. It has
    large diameter worm clamp style
    connections on both ends.
    This is a pellet stove installation
    btw, but there must be something
    similar available for wood stove installs.
    I didn't like the tee just suspended
    even though the stove shop said I
    could install it that way, so we put
    a few bricks underneath it.

    This is the best pic I have on the computer.

    Thank you zeta! How did you seal the area where the smaller liner goes up the flue?

    You need to use a block off plate or stuff the chimney with Kaowool (or equivalent) around the liner so the air flow is cut off.

    You mentioned "double-wall" pipe. Are you installing a wood stove or pellet stove? You wouldn't use double wall pipe from the stove to the "T" with a wood stove, just regular single wall stove pipe.

    I have a Jotul Kennebec insert and I have a 90 degree elbow coming off the top of the insert into an 8" piece of pipe, which then goes into a stainless "T" attached to the bottom of the liner. Sorry, no pics available...

    Sure you can use doublewall pipe from a wood stove to a tee. Helps with clearances. Plus I use an adjustable doublewall pipe and that adjustability helps when it comes to moving the stove and hooking things back up after cleaning.
