The funny thing about codes is that I find they are enforced by the whim of the inspector signing off on the job.
Where I live I had to have a "liner".... The 9x13 tile liner was not good enough according to the fire chief and building inspector!
The fire chief thought that the flue would be too large and not supply sufficient draft under the right conditions.
You only "need" to have common sense and what the building inspector requires
Doesn't matter 'cause after spending time reading this forum I knew I had to become a coalie at any cost!
I'll keep everyone posted on the condition of my AL29 liner after every cleaning/inspection so all can benefit
