I built my metal chimney from Lowes. It is 14' high 6" inside diameter. Although my house is only 1 story high, it gets plenty of draft. I must keep the damper completely closed or else the coal will burn up too fast.

I installed one for a customer last year that is only about 10 ft above the top of the stove connected to a TLC-2000. I had reservations that there would not be enough draft but the customer didn't want to spend any more money. Single story manufactured house, pipe is about 3 ft above the roof line. Stove worked great last winter

Steve,
I was wondering if I would have enough height. I have stove pipe that is only 17'' above collar of the stove and then it elbows and a couple ft section to the wall thimble. I was planning on putting up 15' of DWP above the tee and just wondering if that would be enough. I see from your posting that I probably will be O.K. Just would like to know what height everbody is running ? Thanks

I have 15ft of prefab chimney and 5ft of stove pipe that go straight up from my stove and through the ceiling and roof. I have always had a very good draft. In the winter time my baro is always open, many times almost fully open. Even in the warm weather if my stove comes off idle the baro will open some.
