WTF happened here? Craig? Help! If it is a short vent, it will typically put out more fly ash sparks. Again, not a big deal in my experience as long as the vent isn't a foot away from gas soak rags, or a pile of leaves. Don't burn cats in a pellet stove, not alot of btu's.
I am sorry slick. I thought you were someone joking, I didn't mean to offend you.
Now thats funny....... relax slicky baby all is well.
Are you saying that you never posted on here before?
Yeah sure ummm me neither :coolhmm:
I've seen a lot of helpful answers from most of these guys/gals, but one thing I have noticed, there is alot of fun to be had here. It's a nice loose community where everyone is laid back enjoying the fire and the small talk. Plenty of razzing and lots of playful banter. So don't get discouraged by some fun talk at times, but if you have legitimate questions, everyone here is more than willing to help, or at least guide you in the right direction to an answer. Just be ready to accept an occasional joke here and there.
Absolutely posted on here before. I meant no bad history on posts before always got help never harassed and tried to be made a fool out of.
If the fly ash is a concern, you could add a tee to the pipe just outside of your house and go vertical for a few feet. This should greatly diminish or stop the hot ash from exiting the pipe.
I think a pellet stove may not be for you if you're that nervous.
I can take a joke but when I am asking about sparks and not knowing anything about stoves and you make a joke and tell me to sleep with a hose I tend to get a little annoyed. If you joked after wouldn't give a s-it
Thank you Rap69ri
Sparks from the pipe <<<<<< this has the sound of a great novel! or movie?
OMG, LOL, slick I was as nervous as you too, you will relax in a few years. Hope you are laughing with us.
I am really not nervous with the stove itself but the sparks concerned me. Yes I can laugh after you tell me that it's normal
SlickPlant, I have an idea...why don't you ask your husband about the sparks.
Sparks are normal.
Sh*t! I left the stove on and went to bed. Just woke up covered in sweat. Better turn that thing off just to be safe. Funny if gas furnaces had a big giant glass window on them, would we sleep well? And then there's that darn clothes drier, wonder if that had a window on it if we'd clean the exhaust pipe a bit more often? No candles, ever, ever, ever. Really, I'm going to bed now, without peeking at this thread 'til morning. Really.
Typical male. Doesn't pay attention. :lol: She said she's a single Mother.
I wouldn't worry about a few sparks honestly. If you think
the shrub is too close then I would cut it down. I'm serious.
If it meant the stove goes or the shrub I'd chop the shrub.
If you really want the folks here to analyze your setup, I'd
suggest standing far enough back to get a pic with the shrub
and the pellet vent in the pic and post it up here.
For a lot of us it's new it's different from what a lot of us are used to. All I can say is thanks for this forum and all the information from everyone and certainly putting my mind at ease. And, sc_ew BIG OIL. It's important for us all to know that with a safe insallation that we and our family are safe. Thanks hearth.com.
You're a good sport.
Oh god another night of laughs on me huh? I am a great sport right????
Hello slick how are you tonight, been outdoors since it got dark???? just wondering...
