Rick :

Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you solve your problem

Rick :

what is this pipe for?

Customer:

stove to burn wood

Customer:

hello

Rick :

OK

Rick :

You need to run all fuel pipe which is typically stainless steel

Rick :

triplle wall

Rick :

The pipe size (inner most sleeve) is the same size as the take off on the back of the stove

Rick :

once you locate a supplier they can provide you with support brackets and fittings

Rick :

The top of the pipe must be at least 2' above anything within 10' feet horizontally

Customer:

wait one second

Rick :

ok

Customer:

ok Im back

Rick :

ok

Customer:

what should be in wall where pipe goes through

Rick :

A wall thimble is made for this purpose to maintain proper clearance to combustibles

Customer:

please list all material needs for this to work thanks

Rick :

I don't know all the materials you will need. I don't know what kind of a run you have. I can list all the materials commonly needed

Rick :

Assuming this goes up the side of a building and through no roof.

Rick :

You need a base tee at the bottom of the vertical run and a base support

Rick :

you need wall support brackets

Rick :

a Belmont top or other similar cap for the top

Rick :

a wall thimble

Rick :

pipe and possibly other elbows depending on the run

Customer:

do we need to seal pipe with anything

Rick :

no the pipe needs no sealant and sections will self lock together

Rick :

If the top extends more than 5' above the top wall support you may need a roof support bracket as well

Customer:

is it best to run pipe higher than roof

Rick :

I already covered this, It must extend at least 2' above anything within 10' horizontally

Customer:

sorry i am new with this , will the thimble be enough protection between wall surface to provent from getting hot

Rick :

yes

Customer:

thank you very much for your help
