like to know if any body has a picture of the fire box set up with the brick's installed. Also he has a 1600 sqft.
house and is burning about a 100lbs a day. his baro is open most of the time and you can see fire in the pipe through the baro flapper opening. about 4' of flames are hitting the 90*. Do you guy's thing his draft is to strong. should he install a damper on the vertical stack. thanks.
Tell your buddy to move the baro off the stove flue and onto the stove pipe the baro will do nothing where it is at
it need to take in the cooler room air to work correctly being where it is at it is doing nothing . also it must be level
you need at lease 12" of stove pipe between the stove flue and baro tell him to look at the instructions that came with
the baro on Placement and setup or have him go to this link below and look at the Pics. http://fieldcontrols.com/draftcontrol.php
