    Hello

    The 4" diameter flex line goes to a reducer into the stove. The stove flange is too low to the floor to just put a cleanout T on it. Can anyone suggest a good way to do this? see pic below.

    First off when speaking about reducers...they do not exist in venting. You can only INCREASE...a technicality... so they are called increasers. That design there by Breckwell is flawed. They offer the same stove with a pedestal, but in the insert...they just leave it the way it is. Sometimes you can kick a 3" T on there at a 45. Or it you are really ambitious, cut up a T and make a short body T...I usually do that with a single wall liner T.

    Is the glass half empty or half full? Just testing you on the increaser . LOL

    I guess I will go with the:

    DuraVent 4PVP-T3B on a 45 angle or even more
    Increaser Tee with Clean-Out Tee Cap - 4 Inch Inside Diameter

    DuraVent 3PVP-ADB - appliance adapter


    DuraVent 4PVP-ADFF
    Female Flex Adapter - 3 Inch Inside Diameter

    DuraVent 4PVP-E45 so there is not too much bend in the piping.

    Don, I wouldn't use a an increaser T here. You wont have enough clearance to kick it sideways. Also, the "B" in the SKU denotes black...you are paying $8 more for that. use a 3PVP-AD into a 3PVP-T into a 3PVP-45 into a 3PVP-X4

    Yes no need for black, if an increaser T is not used then what could be used?

    I don't think thats gonna work. you need to be able to clear the hopper. I think I've tried it and didnt work, I forget. look up that product in this catalog. It shows component measurements

    http://www.duravent.com/docs/product/Q1_2013_L820_PelletVent Pro.pdf

    1 1/2 of the adapter slides on to the collar so you only have 4 1/2" to center

    I have used many things...they all kinda don't work for this insert. Make a damper plate too, that firebox is filthy!

    Have you seen many of these increasers in the pic screwed to the exhaust flange and the other end screwed to the flex adapter on the P22i?

    Hello

    Wow, it was very hard to get off, in fact they said the dealer tech never removed it to do cleanings. LOL

    Hello

    Well, I found a fix

    A stove adapter combo increaser to 4" diam duravent venting to a 4" diameter cleanout T to a 90 Deg elbow to a new 4" flex adapter. Had to cut the flex liner back a bit. Wow it was a harder SS liner to cut! Must be good stuff!

    Also the stove's exhast flange was very loose. Therefore I had to remove the exhaust blower with the exhaust blower housing and remove the flange and clean out the old RTV and put in new! It is never a simple job!

    Thread for me thinking that this is something I wanted to make up. Had Olympia make me this. Shallow t with flea out opening on the back. Snout can be cut to suit desired depth.

    On the P22i there is only 1/2" from the stove flange to the bottom, so that would still have to be turned sideways. Even if it did fit, you would not be able to get the cleaning cap off. Right?

    It fits perfect. Clean out is on the back.

    What is the distances in inches between the bottom of the T and the bottom of the pipe that goes into the stove?
