The fire has been getting lazy, draft low, and heat has been poor the last few days. I found few inches of fly ash in the horizontal pipe running over to the chimney tee. Problem solved! I need to get a tee with a cleanout cap installed instead of the elbow, it would have been a 10 minute job instead of 1+ hours. :mad:
