Question about Flue and Keystoker 90

PostBy: jrn8265 On: Tue Jul 22, 2008 11:56 am

Hi all,

Real new but learning fast thanks to all of you!

I have a stainless steel, 5" 26 foot long flue chimney....the keystoker 90 has a 6 inch flue vent on it....does anyone know if I can still use the keystoker 90 with this size flue? If not, can I direct vent it up the chimney? Thanks!

I'd say yes, use the tall 5" flue, and install a barometric damper on it.. you will have way more draft than needed for the stove once it warms up.. and you don't want to have the excess draft pulling all your heat up the chimney.

Greg, not sure what you mean. Are you saying yes that a keystoker 90 with a 6" flue vent can be connected to a 5" chimney flue that is 26 feet long? I though you had to have a 6" match a 6"or you can get a backup of arbon monoxide? Or did you mean that I can direct vent up the chimney? Thanks much!

No don't direct vent it.. just use the 5" chimney,, the height of the chimney will help make up for the smaller diameter.. If you want to make sure, contact Keystoker and ask them,,
