Does anyone know if this method of cleanout would work with the englander 30? The chimney guy wants to put a Tee in the chimney run for the cleanout, then smash a hole in the existing chase so that the chimney can be cleaned from the outside. But if I can just run class A all the way down down into the stove and clean it inside the stove, then I wouldn't need this, right? When I mentioned this idea, he was concerned about chimney support, but it looks like we could still use the "duravent stainless Tee support" to support the chimney - but without installing the Tee. Is this correct?I'm thinking the englander 30 (non-cat), so maybe this would work
If this is just as simple as running the class a pipe through the chase and supporting with the Tee support and stabilizing with the wall straps, then I'm thinking of doing it myself - since I know the chimney better than anyone now. Is this a bad idea?
