Hello! My older pellet stove died and I replaced it with a used propane Warnock Hersey stove. It came with a wide vent pipe and a pipe that goes through the middle, looks thin kinda like a dryer vent.

My pellet stove that was there has a vent that uses pellet venting which is pretty thick.

My question is .. is what it came with legit? Can it be used? Should I try and just use the pellet stove piping? Or do I need to go buy all new piping ?

personally If the pipe it came with can be used it would be super simple. Thoughts?
