    I can not get Icc localy so it would have to be ordered online. I know dynamite buys is wonderful, but they only sell pellet vent pro, and selkirk. I will have to think about this.

    I'm just trying to help, and I have local ICC dealers so it was a no brainer to me.
    I don't take chances with leaks (Co2 = invisible death), and I also have Co2 detectors/alarms just in case.

    That's the problem with ICC, it is tough to get, as they don't allow internet sales, at least I have never seen one. You have to find a dealer, tell them what you want and go get it, or convince them to ship it to you. But it is worth it.

    However, others have had good luck to Duravent. And if you do get DuraVent, make sure you get the latest product as I think they may have worked though their issues.

    Well after alot of research here is what i came up with. I called numerous dealers in the area and they all swear by duravent with few problems. The one dealer told me duravent use to be a nightmare but they worked out alot of problems. Icc pipe is not availble so that option is out. The only other option is selkirk, which is a great pipe, but has to be ordered through a dealer. So my conclusion is to order duravent through dynamitebuys.com, due to the fact that if I need a part it is available locally. I talked to sean at dynamite buys, and he told me duravent is one of there most popular selling pipes. I can get selkirk from him but it is a 2 week wait time, so say i receive the pipe and need a extra fitting, with a 2 week wait time that will not work. So im gonna go with duravent and hopefully i have good luck. By the way anyone looking for pellet stove pipe order from dynamite buys, over 100.00 cheaper then what my dealer could do for me. So any other suggestions Im all ears. After all you all have been wonderful with all your years of experience.

    When I helped my brother-in-law install his Mt Vernon AE at Christmas we used the new Duravent pipes and had absolutely no problems. The one thing to note is that you really have to crank on the pipes to get the pieces to lock together and get a proper seal. He has had no issues with smoke in the house.

    +1. With the exception of an out of round adjustable section of pipe, I had no trouble with the DV Pro. Dynamite Buys replaced the damaged pipe with no questions asked. Sealed the joints with RTV and have had no troubles with leaks.

    Well it worked out for an extra 20 buckets I could get the Selkirk pipe, so it is on the way. I really wanted selkirks system where the exhaust and oak are built into one, but it was just way to much for now. So in about 2 weeks we should have some pipe!

    Well I got the stove pipe today, it was shipped alot faster then what i thought. Unfortunately I have to send some pipe back. The black paint on the wall thimble is really torn up, and 2 sections of pipe that were suppose to be black are stainless. I may have a pellet stove running by summer lol.

    With this weather, I don't think you need it right now.

    68 degrees in NYC now.

    Looking great.

    I have humped in several stoves over the many years we have lived here.

    The last one I had to do by myself. I set up some crates outside a window and placed a 4x6 across them and used this as an anchor.
    Lashed a snatch block that I keep in the old K5 Chevy Blazer to the timber and ran a good heavy rope through that and back to the stove and out to the rig.

    The stove was bolted to a skid, just tied the rope to it and slid the beast up a couple 4x4's and into the house.

    Once on the floor, I got it off onto a piece of heavy poly sheeting and then it slid across the carpet really easy, well almost easy.

    The stove thats in my avatar is on the raised hearth in the family room now.
    I took it all apart to lighten it up.
    With the cast iron door off, the base off and everything else I could rip off, we carried the pieces in and I reassembled it on site.

    This made it far easier to get the thing up onto the hearth without straining anyone or damaging the tile, stove or the suroundings

    Large stoves can for sure be a PITA to move around the house.

    I bought the display model for around 2600.00 brand new freestanding stove was 3600.00, so not sure but i imagine the inserts might be a little more with the front trim plate.
