    Does anyone out there use this stuff? As I understand it, you spray it into the firebox and onto the wood. Am I supposed to do this regularly, like everyday? Am I supposed to use it for a few days before I intend to sweep the chimney, or just all the time? Because of a steep roof and the 10 - 2 rule, I have a really tall stack. I had a chimney sweep come out last year. He was taller than I am and as I recall, he had no easy time getting the brush in and running it down. I want to be able to sweep my own chimney, so I would appreciate any input regarding the use of the Rutland spray, in particular, and chimney sweeping in general.

    Also...where can a guy get a 40 foot extension ladder?

    Thanks.

    you can order the ladder at big box stores or check a professional equipment store. local one here has better prices on wagner laddders than the big box stores.

    I have a 40' ladder... you can have it. Bought it to get to the higher areas of the house, but it is very difficult to stand up. Takes 2 people giving all they have. Its a 40' Werner aluminum ladder, supposedly lightweight. Needless to say, I now have 2 perfectly good 20' ladders :)

    Seriously, these things are heavy.

    Heck, I have a 24' fiberglass extension ladder (300 lb rated) and even this one is a PITA to setup. It requires two people.
