    I do hope you can give me some insight. My system will be eight years old this November. March of this year I had a chimney fire. Now my question is do I need to replace my stove pipe. It is very clean as you might guess from the fire.

    I cleaned the flue every year but I was burning a lot of green wood.


    If it is solid and in good shape, you needn't replace it. One way of checking is that there should be no rust or soft spots that you could poke through with a sharp nail or penknife blade.

    I'm speaking of interior black pipe. If you have a metal insulated chimney, the inside should be inspected for signs of wear and distortion.
