I have a problem with smoke seeping out the elbows of standard 6" black pipe. The elbows have to be turned from a true 90 as my wood burner is 20" away from chimney. Will these class A pipes and elbows cure this?

Our Answer:

Class A chimney will most likely not be an option for your installation. I suspect that your stove pipe vents up and turns 90 degrees into a brick chimney. If this is the case, you will need to continue using single walled black stovepipe in the house. If the pipe you are using now has crimped ends or has the male ends facing upwards, this could be causing the issue with smoke leakage. I highly recommend redoing the system with welded stovepipe, as it is less prone to leakage. Assembling the pipe with the male ends down will also help. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
