I guess.. Just some pics i thought would be interesting.
Around here we don't use nor are clean outs required on chimney liners. if a bird makes a nest than we just unscrew the connector from the liner thimble
and snake out the nest.
LOLOLOL:laughing:... had one recently the customer had let go for too long. I pulled my electrical snake threw it and it fell apart.
As i am holding a deteriorated length of liner in my arms customer says, "Guess it kinda rotten , ey? I got some Molson's in the frig, eY?" I think the guy was a Newfy, but who cares. The beer was good and the company was a riot! I staggered to my truck four hours later.
First time a good rainstorm pours down that chimney after the cap flies off it will wash out the furnace nicely. Newfies drink Moosehead and are hilarious. Interesting to hear about the different acceptable installation requirements across North America. Canada is very strict about everything being done to one code (CGA) and I like the idea of no shortcuts or lesser standards from one area to another (not that the US has a lack of standards, I would think that AGA would have standardized venting requirements?).
Been using one for years ....... sure beats using a hammer on fittings.
Before we bought a tri-plex with snap lock all our ductwork was pittsburg ......... my hearing sucks now
Those electric hammer are pretty industructable ....... even had one that was in a jobsite toolbox that accidentally got filled with water being there was a burst pipe that was over it. A lot of stuff was destoyed but we just opened it up and cleaned it ........ that was a good 20 years ago and its still running fine.
