Yes you are correct On A A & AHS the baro should be closer to the chimney. Aswell the stove pipe shound be half way
into the tee where the baro is when looking threw the baro flap door you should see the stove pipe at the half way point
in the Tee does not look like you have set up like that hard to tell from your pics but it looks like to me you have the
stove pipe right at the end of the tee and not inside at the half way point of the tee .


I believe Axeman recommends this tee setup in there installation manual, AHS does not. I have 2 ahs 130's and have no problems.
Just what is the purpose for this arrangement?

Helps with the draft gases with Puffbacks & flames from coming out of the baro .
use the search at the right hand top corner Put in AHS baro set up you will find alot of threads talking about this set up
on both the AA & AHS here one to start off with .

If I keep my stack temps under 300 will it be OK ?

I already have a bunch of it and hate to go out and buy new black pipe ?

my stovepipes are entirely metal......no money for a masonry chimney or double wall pipe chimney......with the black pipe, i get one season out of it if i'm lucky......the galvanized lasts almost two seasons

I would have gone stainless but I was afraid of the cost. As for my experience with inspectors, they're going to follow what the installation manual says. I think it says not to use galvanized so that could be the reason for the problems with the inspectors.



hmm . my inspector approves galvanized flue pipe on my coal stove

Use up your galvanized, then switch if you like. 316 stainless steel isn't expensive when you consider the time involved in changing flue pipes.

There's absolutely no reason not to use galvanized on a coal-burning appliance. Tell those inspectors to stop worrying about non-issues.

what is it, 6" copper pipe? For what that must have cost I would have turned the boiler around and ran the pipe straight up.
