woodstove chimney

In reply to When It Comes To Building A Chimney ... by Jay J on March 23rd, 2000 01:23 PM [Go to top of thread]

At my hunting cabin in new england I go through a new set of inside smoke pipe in less than 1 heating season, due to creasote and rust, making for a dangerous situation. Would i be better off with a block and tile outside or insulated pipe cost wise? I need about 16' from the ground or 14' from the stove up. This is a wood furnace w/8" flue and I think all the creasote problem arises from having 10' of single wall smoke pipe inside and cooling off too rapidly therefor allowing liquid creasote to form and run back down the pipe. Thanks for any ideas, Wayne
