I would like to connect a viper brush to a chimney cleaning rod, what is the size of the connection?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 29, 2012
Answer:IAll of the Viper products come standard with a M10 size connection. This is true also for the brushes. If your current rods have this type of connection, then this brush will work for you.

I have a wood stove that vents to an 8" pipe and a 90 degree elbow up the chimney to a 11" x 7" flue. What size Viper brush should I use?
By Kevin E. on November 25, 2014
Viper recommends that the size brush be oversized by two inches per the diameter of the flue. For your 8" application, a 10" brush
is recommended. Viper does not make a rectangular brush. So, the 11x7 brush
will require both the Wohler adapter
and the brush adapter

I already have cleaning rods that are 1/4 inch thread size. What connection size is the M10 that you mention? Do I need a converter to use these rods?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 9, 2012
Answer:The M10 connections refers to a metric, 10 millimeter thread size. However, this connector is designed to link the Viper chimney systems to the Viper specific rods. It sounds like you simply wish to use the existing 1/4 rods with a Viper brush, so this will only require a 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch adapter.

I have a metal pipe fireplace chimney, believe the lid is 8 inches. There are two 30 degree offsets and the overall height is about 22 feet. What type of brush and rods do you recommend to clean this pipe?
