Stove pipe as chimney?

PostBy: Harrygunz On: Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:51 pm

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and have a few questions.

I'm sure this question has been answered on the forum somewhere but I couldn't find it. It may sound dumb to some but is it possible to use regular single wall black stove pipe as a chimney for my harman mag stoker?? I currently live in town and not expecting to be here longer than another year or so , so a masonry chimney is out of the question. The stove was used and at a price I couldn't pass up (500 bucks), but now just looking for a cheap install to help with heating costs.

Also pondered on the idea of a power vent but don't know how that would work with the fumes and next house being only a couple feet away.

Any input would be great.

No,No and a less than Casual "Hell No" ! Not even worth the risk My Friend! I want to see you make that year at your present place without burning it down or CO'n yourself out of existence. That pipe's only for getting to a thimble in a Masonry Chimney or Approved Insulated and Collared on Structure Pass-Through Metal Pipe Chimney or Power Venter Set Up. With the Neighbors so close in an Urban Setting,it sounds like a No Go. Be patient,find your new place and install that 500 Dollar Beauty into a Proper Chimney,My Friend! Thanx for Asking,and Welcome to the Coal Board! :up:

Im afraid Bob is right... thats a 100% NO! Im not sure it would even draft (even if you did wish to take that kind of crazy risk :cry: )

I would keep your eyes on your local creigs list and search for a proper double walled stainless, i have a house in pembroke with a large run of it that has to come down (stuff is like new).
If you post your location id know if you were nearby.

I used a stove pipe chimney for the first year I burned.. It was a nuisance to deal with. I took it down at least twice to flip it upside down, and then again to seal joints. It hardly lasted one winter and the following summer destroyed it :lol: ... I DO NOT recommend doing this. It was a good lesson learned. I had about $400.00 into it. Then realized my block chimney just needed a little TLC for the following winter..

Here's my stove pipe chimney adventure..

Thanks for the advice guys, I was afraid that would be the answer.

dcrane : I'm in Schuylkill county, about 20 minutes north of Pottsville.

Only other question I have is with the power vent system. Does one have to worry about the fumes being that it isn't traveling up a chimney and out into the open air. I talked to a guy at work that uses a direct vent on his reading and has it between his and the next house which is only 8 feet away, which is about the same as my scenario.

Do it properly!! I've seen some very scary chimney set-ups, that worked. People in this one particular town are dirt poor. Not even going to describe any chimney set-ups. The residents lived in old run down houses, campers, busses, sheds, tar-paper shacks, you name it. Very poor........The only building in the whole town that looked great, was the high school. All marble front, well manicured landscaping, etc.. A school you would see in an upper middle class neighborhood. It looked like a palace. It wasn't long after doing some work in this town, the same town made the local news at my place (1-1/2 hours away). Said school wanted to raise taxes. :shock:
