I would like to replace my single wall pipe with heat shield on my Lopi Liberty with DVL telescoping pipe and wanted to know if it would fit my existing Class A Chimney. Do you think it will? It's Metalbestos(Selkirk) from 1993. I have the drip-less stove pipe adapter that is 15 inches long coming from the ceiling support box and wanted to make sure this DVL pipe would slide up over the adapter. What are your thoughts?

I want to repair an old 6-inch stove pipe with your double wall telescoping pipe, but it says it's for use with Dura Tech Chimney Systems and woodburning stoves. I have no idea what my existing system is, since it's so old. Can I use this part on a different pipe system or do I need to purchase something else to fit inside of my 6 inch pipe?

Answer:In reality, it may indeed be possible to utilize this stovepipe with other brands of Class A chimney piping. The DVL pipe is designed to connect to Class A chimney with a special adapter. Depending on how your current chimney end is designed, the adapter may be able to make the connection. However, we will need to verify that before you make a purchase.

I have a Lopi Patriot with a 6" pipe, but I want to upgrade to double wall pipe. I have ordered DuraVent telescoping pipe and an adaptor for the ceiling collar, but I don't know if I will need an adaptor for the stove or if I have bought the right adaptor for the ceiling.

Most stoves do indeed require an adapter for the double wall pipe to fit into the flue collar proper. The correct part for that purpose is the DVL stovepipe flue adapter
As far as the existing chimney pipe goes, it sounds as if there is a piece of Class A chimney protruding through the ceiling, rather than a ceiling support box or round ceiling support. The DVL chimney adapter may fit into the end of this pipe, but it is hard to say without knowing the manufacturer.
