Hey guys, I have a coal stove base burner that Ill be installing in my basement. Since I am going through the wall in the basement, I will need to have both a vertical secion of pipe off the stove and it will need to transition to a horizontal section via an elbow to the wall thimble.
Does the horizontal section of pipe need to have a upward angle (like 1/8" per foot, or can it be perfectly level? It will be short section of horizontal pipe (approx. 1.5 ft)
Also, how does the stove pipe attach to the stove. I have a cast elbow that has no drilled holes in it to connect the pipe. Does furnace cement need to be used for that or should i just drill and use screw to secure the pipe?
Are there any critical dimensions for chimney and stove pipe installs that I need to know about? (Ie- does the vertical stove pipe coming off the stove need to be a certain length, etc..)
Thanks for the help guys.
