PSA::: Clean your flue pipes.

PostBy: Flyer5 On: Fri Feb 21, 2014 8:07 pm

Just want to remind everyone to clean the pipes in the coal appliances. Tomorrow looks to be a good day for a change.
The past 2 yrs I was able to go the whole season without cleaning the flue pipes on my boiler. I had to clean mine this week. They have been running hard with this weather. I cheated with my electric leaf blower I wish I put a camera outside. looking at the chimney.

That gave me the idea. But I did it from the inside and blew it out. I have a 5' horizontal run that is after 2 90* elbows and a 2' vertical rise I should have put a T but I didn't. I did not feel like taking the pipe apart so I figured what the heck. Why not? And here hold my beer and watch this. Worked like a charm.

I posted this on here because I have been hearing about blocked systems a lot more this year including mine.

Good reminder Flyer...
We need to remember to schedule our cleanings by the tonnage burned, not by the months it has been lit.
