Is that my imagination, or is that flu pipe going DOWN??? .. .. .. ..
No your absolutely correct - it is indeed going down. Not ideal, for sure, but was my only choice - had no other options due to it's location. I would've had to punch a 3rd hole in the chimney, plus try to reach said hole through tree trunks, and endless plumbing. Just wasn't happening. So far it's working, although I get flue gas out the hopper. I'm either going to install a custom hopper lid, or make a metal air cutoff for the combustion blower ... or both. I stuck some paper in there before - just a small piece - and the smell was 100% gone.
Thanks for that info McGiever! I'll bet it is off an Alaska - Jim used their doors alot on his stoves. Mine is no exception.
Just by looking at it, I couldn't see how it would work well ... but work well it does!!
