Was wondering about being able to tie two stoves into one chimney stack? Anyone ever tried that? 64 Lat, zone 2, Julie

How many stoves will be operating at the same time? How big of a chimney stack do you have?

Basically, you need 6" round chimney for each 6" rocket heater which is being operated. You can't run 2 of them into the same 6" round chimney.

you mean a burn chamber in two different rooms or ends of a room? i can see where that would be beneficial in a large building. im a beginner, so i cant advise anyone sorry. lol i wonder if you could do multiple levels on the same exhaust too? like one in basement and one on main floor.
