Is it normal for sparks to come out of the outside pipe?
Helpful Sponsor Ads!
I have seen a few sparks but they go out in a second or two. Maybe like 1-3 sparks every couple of minutes (not consistant though) but I haven't had my stove cranking yet either.
Never saw a single spark come out of mine,
but it is vented 15 ft up a masonry chimney
and capped at the top.
Mine is pellet vent pipe.
To clarify, mine is pellet vent pipe too. Well
it's a combo of pellet vent and ss flex. I just have
15 feet of it going up my chimney instead.
The only time I saw any sparks come out was from a horizontal install that was fairly short, but as Sydney said, they went out pretty quickly.
They seem to go out quick but it's making me nervous. I am scared of a fire. My pipe outside looks like the picture above.
How high is the outside pipe off the ground? What's underneath it?
Do you have any combustible material below your vent? Like shrubs dead grass or leaves? If not it's ok but if it makes you feel better you can always put down some paving stones. How many sparks are you talking about?
There is a shrub there but not right under it. Is this normal? If not what can I do to stop it?
How many sparks?
Didn't stay out long I only saw a few it's not like they are flying out nonstop
If it makes you feel better cut down the shrub. Without pictures it's hard to say what I would do.
Take pictures of what? Do you feel it's important enough to call where I bought it and had it installed or is it just something normal?
You are not funny!
Why are you ROFLMAO?????
You have been a worry wart ever since your stove was installed. :lol: Don't worry abut it starting a fire you will be fine. Place some 12x12 pavers under the pipe if it makes you feel better. Or soak the area with water every 1/2 hour.
This person seems really nervous let's help em feel comfortable.
I am sorry if my questions sound so abnormal but sparks flying out of a pipe I didn't think was such a dumb question
Because what Sydney said struck me as very funny....is that OK?
And Sydney, relax will ya....
You know it's a good idea I will sleep by the door with a hose outside and go out every 1/2 hour wow great idea
Sparks are ok as long as they aren't pouring out of the vent.
I'm LMAO now! hahahahaha Sorry slick!
Listen what size hose should I have?????
