I have a stainless steel pipe/liner (with an elbow) running from my wood stove to the chimney opening. The pipe has been cleaned of loose creosote, but there remains glazed creosote inside the pipe. I have a chimney brush and pole. My stove is air tight.
Will the chains dent or damage the pipe? What configuration is the drill and extension cord if the chains are to be lowered 20 feet on the pole? (that is, does the drill with chains dangle?) The pole will bend at the elbow. Your picture appears to have a threaded end. I guess the chains attach here. How is the drill attached?
I'm a 70 year old woman and have been cleaning this wood stove for 20 years myself. Now my family won't let me go up to the roof. After all this time, I probably know more than most people I would hire to do this.

This particular creosote removal system uses button lok rods, which snap into the female end of this tool and have corresponding locking buttons to attach to one another. The starting rod will have one that that has hexagonal flats machined onto it. This allows the chuck of a standard 1/2" drill to grab onto the rod and spin the assembly. It is recommended to clean from the top down and let the entire assembly dangle, however the system can be cleaned from the bottom as well.
The rods are manufactured of steel and are only slightly flexible, as this system is designed primarily to clean a masonry flue. Unless you are using a heavy gauge liner, I would not recommend this system as it can damage the liner over time, causing the seams to unravel.

What size drill does it take? Does it come in a kit?

This item can be used with an electric drill that has a 1/2 inch, 3 or 4 jaw chuck. The item is sold separately from the prokleen chimney rods that it must be used with.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
The Creosote Removal Chains did a very good job to remove the creosote in our chimney.
When we tried to order this item and the correct rods, we were unable to get a sales rep. so we ordered the wrong rods. Also after a hour, my husband told me I had order the wrong length, so I call back and was told the shipment had already been packed. Upon receiving the order, I found the items were on back order, of course I felt very disappointed in the fact, I had been given a untruth, knowing that the order could not have been packed when the rods were not in stock. All this problem could have been erased had I been able to actually talk with a customer service rep. I am sure you are very happy with having lots of business, but with the high volume of orders, it would serve your company well to have more lines to accommodate your customer. We were pleased we finally did a young man by the name of Tyler who helped us get the correct rods, we were sorry that it still cost us $30 plus to have to return items, and I have not gotten a credit to our account as of yet either. I do hope that you will have time to read this email. Your products are very good, but your service may need to be looked into, This is to help not to be such a complaint.
