I have an old chimney that will not pass inspection. The chimney runs from the basement through the first and second floors and then out of the roof of an old farm house. I have a US stove wood/coal furnace in the basement with a six inch rear pipe. The chimney has a roughly 6" terracotta liner. Will this product fit inside the liner? And will this product pass the inspection?

Answer:We do not currently offer any 6" chimney liner that will fit inside an existing 6" terracotta liner. If you plan to remove the existing 6" liner with a tile breaker, you will likely be able to use this product.

I am almost done breaking up the tile in my flue and looking forward to the next step. You recommended i get the Duraliner relining pipe- which sounds good but a few questions-
1. the flue collar and first few feet of flue heading out and up towards the main flue (in my basement) makes a couple of slight turns before reaching the main flue, which is then vertically all the way to the top. I'm envisioning that i could use a flexible section first, and then build on the rigid pieces afterwards until i reach the top. Will in need to do any extra insulation in the first section since it would be flexible pipe there?
2. installation- how to i get it all in place? is there something that can be attached to the first section or pipe and then lowered through the flue into the open end on the bottom at the collar so we can pull it through into place?

Answer:While it is recommended that any flexible portion of Dura-liner be insulated, it is not always necessary. In your case, if the flexible section is located in an area below the flue tiles you have been removing, it would not be needed. However, the liner would need insulation if it is going to be in a part of the chimney that previously had flue tiles.
As far as the installation goes, it is most common to attach the components at the top of the chimney and feed them down gradually. Tying a rope to the first piece of liner and dropping it down the chimney is a good way to guide the assembly down into place, especially if someone can pull on the rope from the bottom to assist in getting the liner through any tight places.
