Hi, 5 years ago I had professionally installed a new stainless steel chimney & a Hitzer 30-95 Stove. Every year but this year I took down my stove pipe over the non-heating season .. thinking I'd replace it this year. I took down the pipe and found a rotted out stove pipe adapter.
I have the 6'' Selkirk Flat Ceiling Support Kit - 6T-FCK - and about 11 feet of pipe thru the roof.
The actual part I'm talking about is listed as : Stove Pipe Adapter DSAC and it says for NEW Installs.
They make a retro which is listed as a DSA ..
My question is .. has any one else experienced this problem? Should I go and order a DSA?? and cut out the old DSAC??
Or should the chimney be removed and looked at. .and have a NEW DSAC installed??
I'd like to do the work myself. I don't want to pay the labor change when I can physically do it.
Any advice would be appreciated..
