tm, screw everything together & if you feel more comfortable, cement the connectors--ya can't over-do safety. You're the only one standing there looking at your set up, do what you feel should be done!
Me, zoning regs, insurance req's, and who knows who else.
We once had smoke from food burning on the gas range and the alarm system went off. Central station notified the fire department. They went over the house from top to bottom looking for violations. They said they were required to by law. (Maybe, but I think it had more to do with legal issues in case a problem arose later that resulted from something they didn't see it when they responded).
Anyway, I should have been clearer in my question. It seems that when I move to a place with fewer intrusions, regulations follow a few years behind.
I'd much rather not cement the adaptor because I clean the chimney from the bottom up. I would like to unscrew everything from the liner so the eight inch brush will go right in.
Thanks for the replies.
The aluminum tape sounds good for the connection from adaptor to liner. Cement for the reset. Everything screwed together.
