No Rust so far....

PostBy: Uglysquirrel On: Fri Jul 30, 2010 6:37 pm

Been using that Damprid water absorber as advised in other postings in the Pocono since May,got it at HD, pretty cheap by the bag, change it once a month plus I got one of those small reusable Remington dessicants they use or gun safes, etc. I have a pretty cheap digital humidity thing in there and the humidity lows are 29% to 45% though when it gets that high I change the Damprid and reheat the Remington dessicant by plugging it in the 110V outlet for a day.

The exhaust and bin hole is stuffed with plastic bags. Did not wash inside of stove with baking soda, pipes are also in bocdy of stove,did not wash these aslo,

So far no rust . Stove is in basement though there is a dehumidifier down there.

Gotta love starlings--NOT--cleaned out Hitzer real good & WD40'd insides real good,cleaned pipe (straight shot through the roof) as well as my brush could do--closed manual damper,2 ft. above stove & left clean out cap off at bottom,great air circulation here on the hill--every now & then,a starling gets in & beats the hell out of the inside of the pipe w/ it's wings & gets any remaining fly ash out---unorthodox but damn functional :D No rust at all :idea:--maybe I'll patent it---useing everything but the OINK

Even LPS-3 can't help my basement! :shock:

Just took these pics. I see the same thing year after year ... but this is NOT a Leisure Line. ;) Just an example of what CAN happen when you mix moisture & flyash.
