Hi, I picked up Vermont Castings Defiant Encore woodstove that had 8 inch piece of pipe with it. Although the opening in the stove is oval shape, I found the reducer to 6” in “Costal” for my particular stove. It’s an daapter from oval shape hole that fits 6 inch pipe.
The newer version of Vermont castings “defiant encore Flexburn” has the same size ovale opening and same size wood stove but it’s built with 6”pipe.
My plan is to order that adapter and put it on my current woodstove, what are some of the contra indications if I go with a 6 inch double wall pipe ?
(My pipe will go straight up through the roof, single story rambler)
Some people on the forum said that it will reduce the draft, my other friend installed an adapter the reducing from 8 to 6 inch and he said his stove works just fine.
