What to use between stove and concrete floor?

PostBy: sauerzbr On: Thu Dec 13, 2007 8:57 am

I'm going to put my stove in the basement which is concrete floored. Concerned about metal stove against concrete and rusting, what recommendations do you have for setting between the stove and concrete?

Interesting question, I'll be watching the answers to this one .
Maybe some old MPD's that the springs rusted out of :o

I used short lengths of 2 1/4" black pipe on end as spacers to get the stove off the floor and as a way to level the stove. I wound up using four ~2" sections to get my flue pipe to line up. If you are worried about rust you could go galvanized - or perhaps somewhat easy to obtain SS exhaust pipe. I have found short lengths of SS pipe at a pressure washer supply company as well, don't know how large in diameter they go though.

A piece of concrete board or patio blocks?

My Hyfire is quite tall, I just sat it on the floor of the basement, it is really dry plus I run a dehumidifier in the summer to keep the dampness out...

I was thinking something like Hardibacker http://www.jameshardie.com/homeowner/backerboard.shtml

Maybe a piece of stainless sheet or galvanized sheet? Galvinized rectangular pipe? Bricks? Rocks?

My stove has a piece of steel channel welded to the bottom on each side. I thought that all stoves had some sort of legs to keep the bottom of the stove up off of the floor.

I thought so as well. I guess I was wrong, Alaska Channings list legs as optional equipment. My dealer orders all his with the LEGS option already attached so it wasn't an issue when I decided on my brand/model and what dealer to go with.

I placed my stove on ceramic tile 12" squares (5/16 thick) , picked up a box at HD for $10.....couldn't go wrong.

Tiles are a great idea! I can get a little decorative, though it's still an open unfinished basement... no intentions of ever finishing it.

I welded 1" round stock in the corners . The manual says to just put small pieces of 1/4 metal in the corners just for a airgap . Dave
