The length needed for my oil furnace's chimney is 22 ft. Can the liner be cut or do I need to add a solid piece? How would I extend the liner down for a longer clean out?

Answer:Yes, this liner can indeed be cut to suit your needs. Unfortunately, the tee cannot be extended any lower, nor can anything connect to it to lengthen the clean out.

I have a wood burning stove I want to hook up to an existing masonry chimney. How do I hook my 6-inch single wall stove pipe into the T connector? Do I fit it in with lots of pressure, or do I need to screw it in somehow?
What parts/accessories do you have available that would help me make an up to code clean-out for this chimney liner? More flex pipe and a door?

Answer:In order to make the connection to the single wall piping passed through the thimble, you must crimp the end of the tee takeoff and insert it into the stovepipe. In most cases, it is impossible to actually screw the takeoff to the piping, unless you have a removable takeoff and the room to reattach the takeoff to the tee body after the fact.
Typically, you can attach an additional length of flexible pipe, using a band clamp, to the bottom of the tee. The pipe can be routed to the base of the chimney and capped to prevent pressure issues. A top support plate should be able to take the full weight of the chimney liner and the extension.
