Why doesn't my stove burn good?

    Yes. That is single wall gas vent....That is NOT pellet vent. Look at it and its pretty evident

    Eric, if you dont mind? Could you please do the Math on what that would cost to install.

    1- 45° off the stove (corner install)
    17- 90° (16 in the set-up and assuming there is another to go out the window)
    8 - 3 ft sections
    1 -4 ft section
    Termination cap (doubt they have one. Just a wild hunch) ;)

    We are talking THOUSANDS!! Prob 5 times over the cost of the stove.

    But gas vent is pretty cheap. And dangerous!!!

    That might be a vertical air cooled worm and instead of a stove that is a pellet fired still?

    If I was in the area I would call and ask If I could look at the stove Just to see if this is real.

    Even worse could it be cheap ducting? Hey if it's good enough for my drier, why not my stove?:) I found a snowflame with a 6" magic heat. Stove wasnt heating. Full of ash of course.

    I'd certainly hope so, that is a lot of extra rtv sealing work and only an expert installer would be able to successfully do the job.
