I have a natural gas fireplace with an inner 4" chimney and an outer 6" chimney. I have a birds nest at the lower more inaccessible end. Is there a way to remove the nest without dismantling the fireplace?

Answer:If you are able to verify that the nest is confined to only the 4 inch inner exhaust vent, the retrieval tool you are viewing now can be used in conjunction with the A.W. Perkins button lock rods. However, this is only the case if the vent is relatively straight and you can easily access the termination. If the nest is in the outer air intake section of the piping, I am afraid the vent piping will need to be disassembled in order to remove it.

What is the brush rod that I need to order to go with this chimney and vent retrieval tool and nest remover?

Answer:There are two different sets of rods for this tool, however one set is designed for dryer vents and the other is for a masonry chimney. The dryer rods are meant for applications when flexibility is needed most.
Please advise which rods would best fit your needs.
