Just started laying my first RMH. I was very confident going into this but I am starting to lose it haha. This is mostly due to the manifold/ash pit area.
Firebrick combustion chamber.
Firebrick heat riser insulated with an old water heater then stuffing with perlite and clay
about 10 feet of 8" hvac pipe....wish i could go longer.
55 gallon drum with removable lid.....this may be inverted so that the lid is stationary and the barrel is removable.
Does the horizontal pipe need to be higher than the bottom of the ash pit? If so, by how much?
How big should the ash pit be?
The flue on my old wood stove is 6" can i go from my 8" into the 6" vertical pipe?......im guessing no.
Her are some pics
