    Because this came up again and everyone who posted probably doesn't want to revisit this, as a non participant during it's first round, I encourage all to read. I haven't spoken with slickplant35 and hope the therapy went well and all things are now OK and you can see sparks and not run for a knife.

    Bumped on purpose.

    Slick, you're ok in my book. Just watch that your bush doesn't catch on fire, cut it down if you have to and put in some pavers under your vent. Where there are sparks there can be fire! You guys are too funny.

    I said it before, and i'll say it again....as a pellet burner, I always have loved a nice closely trimmed bush. :)

    Oh, and as for the spelling of ashamed, the correct spelling according to eernest4 is "ashaimed"

    Sorry macman, it was before I knew how ridiculous it was. I read it again also and was sitting here laughing to myself. If anyone heard me they would have thought I was crazy. LOL But macman, I thought you like being yelled at.

    I've never had that happen but I've heard it can happen if you have a really short pipe.

    And here I was trying to be the nice guy until my PM box lit up that night! Wow, this thread is way too funny, forgot all about it until I saw 'slickplant'. Wonder how it is doing? Slickplant that is, not the stove.

    to pass code you need to be 2 feet above grade. one foot from your house. and 3 feet from combustibles from end of vent if you don't meet this then you need to place stone or block.
