Can a barometric damper in a tee be used as the clean out for your stove pipe? Can they be easily removed to vacuum out the stove pipe and be reinstalled without them having to be readjusted?

Yeah WnY like that where the height of the stove pipe is limited is how I would have to set it up. I just want to make sure it's going to be alright and it's going to work correctly without having to readjust it every time it's removed to be vacuumed out.


Is this one alright?

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
I found it in the store for 22 bucks and it says it's for coal stoves.

The pic is of a "bull head" TEE and it will be fine. Most of us run the RC model baro, about $10 more.

Why remove the baro?? just hold it open and use a vacuum with an extension tube to clean out the bottom of the horizontal section of the flue.. as long as you don't bend/twist or otherwise tramatize the flapper, the baro should stay in adjustment.

You can easlily chect to see if the flue needs cleaning, just hold open the flap and look inside with a flashlight,, if the fly ash is getting more than 1" deep, the vacuum it out..

most use the RC baro, a bit more sensative in adjustments. But the other may work just fine...

Thanks guys, I just saw that baro tee, it was black and it said for coal on it so I picked it up. Before this I was planning on getting the RC model in the black tee which so far I've seen it for about $75.

I'll just go with the RC tee. Thanks guys :)

Find your local heating and ventilation contractor supply house, a new RC is about $28 there.

Yep, $26.66 when I bought the 6" for the stoker on 01/26/08, but only the gray one, not the stylish black model.

Field Controls says specifically "With oil or solid fuels, the bull head tee is not recommended"

http://www.fieldcontrols.com/draftcontrol.php

Guessing it doesn't make much of a real-world difference?

The instructions for my RC show the "bullhead" position as OK for oil and solid fuel, that's why I installed it there. I noticed the instructions have changed. Having it in that position may be a little unsightly but it does make the horizontal run to the thimble easy to check and clean. It may have been changed because that position is neither horizontal or vertical and makes weight position difficult to set without a manometer.

The draft on the stove is well regulated and remains constant, though. That's all that matters.
