Thanks ONEDOLLAR.. since I got you on the hook here, have a few questions about the single wall stove pipe to the stove.
Which direction should I have the reduced end going .... down?
In the operation manual (available online) there's an illustration showing the piping for a free standing, rear vented stove. Coming off the back of the stove, just past the turn damper, it shows a short horizontal section of pipe before the elbow that takes the pipe vertically toward the chimney thimble. Do i need that short horizontal section of pipe or can I come off the back of the stove right into a 90 degree elbow? In my case the stove will be vented to a 6" flue thimble 3'-4' above the stove.
Thanks for any insights.
