I need about 20 feet of cleaning rod for my brush with a 5/8 inch thread. Do you have rods or an adapter?

Answer:While we do offer a large variety of chimney rods, they are available only in 1/4, 3/8, 3/4, and 7/8 inch sizes. The 5/8 inch rods are definitely not a common size and I currently do not have adapters available for them. Just to be certain, I would double check the thread size of the brush. The 3/8 brushes are by far the most common size.

Should a chimney cleaning brush be the same size as the flue pipe or should it be oversized for cleaning friction?

Answer:It is best to match a brush to your pipe diameter. A 6" round flue takes a 6" brush. Over-sizing the brush results in the brush bristles folding over which reduces their cleaning ability.

I have a wood stove with a 6" stainless steel chimney pipe. From the cap it is straight down towards the stove and measures 12 ft. It then does a 45 degree bend, goes approx 18-24 inches, and then does an opposite 45 degree bend and then is straight for 4 ft to the stove.
What would you recommend for a cleaning rod(s) connected together that would reach the entire length and be flexible enough to get through the bends? Also, what would you recommend to brush the stainless chimney pipe?
