Hello all, I have a Leisure Line Pocono bottom vent stoker that I am going to install. My question is I have a chimney chase with a 6 in flue for my oil burner and a 8 in flue for my fireplace. The stoker I got came with a power venter. With all the reading I've been doing on here I feel the power venter would be the way to go because the off season months will have the stainless steel in the chimney rotting and needing a liner or replacement pretty quickly. The chimney is about 30 to 40 foot high so that would be a high price tag on even a liner let alone a double wall pipe system. At some point in the future I may have a masonay chimney built if I know we are not going to have to move. There is a chance next December my job will end. Here are some photo's.
