    Will I be able to clean the soot and creosote out of this when it gets full?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2012

    Answer:
    Yes. The internal baffle can be removed from this cap relatively easily, which helps to facilitate the cleaning of your flue and the cap itself.

    It is also possible to remove the entire cap from your chimney flue at the time of cleaning; it features a push-in design and can be readily taken out.

    Will this HomeSaver 8 inch round windbeater stainless steel chimney cap work as a rain guard as well?
    By Will M. on November 2, 2015

    Answer:
    Yes, the cap is designed to prevent rain from entering the chimney system.

    Does this have a spark arresting screen in it? We live in a seriously dangerous forest fire area.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 6, 2013

    Answer:
    This manufacturer offers a bird guard, but no spark arrestor for this product. A spark arrestor would need to be fabricated to surround the cap or a screen could be installed inline with the chimney flue beneath the cap.

    By Michael Lane from Chicago, IL on December 11, 2011
    I have a wood burning fireplace. When it is windy outside and we have a fire burning, we get puffs of spoke that come into our living room. The serial number in the fireplace is DESA WB056653. Our chimney is a dual-wall, cylindrical chimney with 8 inch diameter inner cylinder and a 12 inch diameter outer diameter. The current chimney cap is attached to the outer cylinder (the 12 inch one). It is a cylinder with mesh on the sides with a flat circular plate on top. This looks like the cap that we need. Can you please confirm that I'm picking the right one?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 12, 2011

    Answer:
    This cap should press right into your factory pipe with no problem. However, you'll want to confirm with your fireplace's installation manual that a cross-section of 50.3 square inches is an adequate vent opening.

    By Andrew from West Swanton, VT on November 24, 2012
    I have a masonry chimney with an 8-inch round flue. How would I mount this cap to my chimney?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012

    Answer:
    In order to make the connection to a masonry flue, the adapter (located in the Accessory tab above) must be used. The adapter has a drop-in design that will grasp the inside of the clay flue tile and hold the cap securely in position.

    By Steve from Fort Collins, CO on October 13, 2013
    I have a pipe that is 7 3/4" OD. Is that an odd size or would this 8" cap work for that?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 14, 2013

    Answer:
    The end of this cap is crimped down to allow it to fit into a 7 5/8 inch pipe or larger. As such, it should work for your application without an issue.
