I vacuum my fire tubes once per week now - I found that if I keep this ritual up, I have no CO issues whatsoever. I gave it a complete cleaning back at the end of January.

I throw a curved piece of galvy I had here over the fire with pliers, unplug the stoker, then vac all the tubes out thoroughly. Remove the galvy and toss it in the sump for an instant cool-down (after making sure the frog isn't nearby), and I'm off and running again. :D

I take it to the scrap yard and have a new one built every spring. :)



















Just kidding. Am I too late for April fools? :D :P
