What makes this chimney setup special? I'm just trying to educate myself.
Because you have a 3 flu chimney, lead flashed, insulated, with large terra cotta liners. You should do a lil' bit of 20 year maintenance to the top of it though when you can (get some chalking tubes of mortar and fill those crakes that water can penetrate).[/quote]
I knew it needed some work on top. I'll have to figure something out as I don't do well with heights.
I'm happy the chimney has 3 flues. I wasn't sure at first. I also didn't know what terra cotta liners were.
Here's the old stove, there was nothing holding the stove pipe together. I was able to remove all of the stove pipe by hand. I don't think this stove was used much and if so, probably a long time ago. This is all good information for me. I've never dealt with burning any type of solid fuel before. Thanks all
