Hello All,

I'm in a position where I need to start with a wood stove and hope to move to a RMH later. However I cannot find any where that clearly describes the requirements for installing stove pipe. I've gathered with the triple wall stove pipe that it only needs 2" of clearance, but I'm having trouble finding out the options for going through the roof and floor. Can someone direct me to a web site that explains this or run down the options for me? I need to go through a SIP roof and one floor (wood stove is going in the basement).

Thanks,
Jerry

A typical code for that is to be triple walled. maybe stop into a fire station and ask

You say you have the triple wall pipe for your stove, so I'm guessing it's used. A reputable dealer would have alerted you to the need for the appropriate pass-throughs to complete your project. If your pipe is in fact used, inspect each section for any damage...any damage whatsoever. Even the smallest dents deform and reduce the interior clearances inside the pipe, which can affect the heat transfer to surrounding combustible materials. Inspect the innermost liner of the pipe, looking for ripples, dents or perforation of any kind...especially separated joints. Use appropriate connectors and terminators and NEVER mix brands or make-shift parts in one chimney system. Proper installation with appropriate parts are the only thing between your solid-fuel heating system and healthy living. Don't scrimp.
