chimney liner installation: step-by-step guide

by:ChangZeng     2020-05-28
Installation of stainless steel chimney lining is an easy and economical way to repair a deteriorated, unsafe or inefficient chimney flue.
After reading this instruction, you will be able to install the chimney liner, which you can do with a normal household tool.
Chimney liners should be installed to reduce the possibility of carbon monoxide leakage, chimney fires and disorganized accumulation.
Chimney lining also improves the energy efficiency of the equipment, making it easier to maintain the fireplace.
Most stainless steel chimney liners are guaranteed for life.
First, you must determine the appropriate size of the chimney lining for your specific settings.
The diameter of the chimney lining you need is equal to the size of the vent holes on the device.
The length of the chimney lining you need will be equal to the height of the chimney.
I would suggest ordering a meal a little more than this amount to give room for error.

Only a few tools are needed for a successful chimney line installation.
You will need a razor, a flat head screwdriver, a caul gun, a pair of working gloves and safety glasses.
The picture shows a grinder with a cutting wheel.
The grinder will give you the best cut when cutting off the excess chimney lining.
Saw or Hacksaw can also work properly.
The project also needs a power drill, but it is not shown in the picture.
Each basic chimney lining kit will be equipped with four main components: stainless steel chimney lining, connector (
In this demo we will use two part tee connection)
Roof and rain cap.
This demo will show a basic installation, but a chimney lining kit can be converted to fit any particular chimney.
The top plate will be the main variable for the chimney lining kit.
For this app, terracotta roof will be used.
This top plate will only be used when the Terracotta Warriors reach out from the top of the chimney.
We have already introduced our basic knowledge, let\'s start now!
Starting with the use of a razor, remove the plastic wrap wrapped around the pad.
Once you get the liner out, start pulling the liner straight.
Make sure to do so on the grass or on a soft surface so you don\'t pierce it.
Straighten the liner as much as you can.
For this app, we will demonstrate the two-part tee connection.
The part of the tee connection and the part cut out from the side are called the vertical part of the tee.
The tee part with the cycle hose fixture is called the horizontal part of the tee.
First locate the vertical part of the tee and insert the padding into the top of the female end.
Tighten the fixture at the top of the vertical part of the tee around the liner with a flat head screwdriver.
This will give you a good, tight fit without having to drill the screws through the liner.
The first part of the chimney lining that will come down from the chimney is the vertical part of the tee connection connected to the lining.
Continue to drop the liner before reaching the thimble.
The thimble refers to the hole on the side of the chimney in the living space, which allows the tube to be attached to the chimney.
If you are caught or hung on a chimney wall, the twisted flexible lining will help you to install the lining.
Now, you need to enter the house and complete the connection of the three links.
Position the horizontal part of the tee connection.
First, insert the horizontal part of the tee and the hose clamping end into the thimble first.
The snake covers the vertical part of the tee through the horizontal hose, and the lips of the tee are within the horizontal part.
When you go through the interior of the horizontal part of the tee, you will find that there is a worm screw.
Use a flat head screwdriver, tighten the worm screw until the two parts of the tee are connected.
Take this step slowly.
As mentioned above, the lips of the vertical part of the tee should be inside the horizontal part.
Once the tee connection is installed correctly, it is time to connect the furnace pipe to the stove.
Most tubes have three screws at each connection point.
Using the drill bit, push the screw into the horizontal part of the tee and pass through the exhaust ring of the stove.
It\'s time to go back to the roof and finish the installation of the top plate and rain cap.
Once the chimney lining runs down along the flue to the thimble point, the next step is to connect the top plate to the top of the chimney.
The main function of the roof is to seal the existing flue from rain, wind, and creatures into the chimney.
It also has a clip on the inner ring of the top plate to support the weight of the liner.
First, use your caulking gun and a tube of weather-resistant silicone to run a lap of silicone along the top of the clay flue.
Next, pass the chimney lining through the circular collar of the top plate so that the top plate is located at the top edge of the clay flue.
Find the locking bolts on all sides of the roof.
Center the top plate on the clay flue and fix the top plate on the side of the clay flue using a flat head screwdriver.
Warning: please make sure not to tighten the locking bolt too much.
The clay chimney flue may break if it is tightened too much.
When you have successfully installed the top plate, the next step is to flush the excess padding with the top of the top plate collar.
The figure shows a grinder with a cutting wheel.
The grinder will give the best cut, but the saw or Hacksaw will work well.
Once you have cut the excess chimney lining, the next step is to connect the lining to the top plate.
The roof is designed to withstand the weight of the chimney lining inside the flue.
The underwear collar on the top board has a hose clip.
There is a worm screw outside the collar that will tighten the hose fixture.
Once the lining is flush with the top of the top plate collar, bring your flat head screwdriver and tighten the worm screw so that the hose clamp is tightened around the lining.
The next step is to fix the rain cap on the top plate.
The collar of the top plate will be inserted into the interior of the rain cap.
There is a hanging hose clip at the bottom of the chimney rain cap.
See bubbles-
Out flange on top collar?
The chimney rain cap will extend down on this bubbling flange.
To ensure a safe installation, the clip will hang directly below the bubble.
Tighten the rain hat clip with a flat head screwdriver.
Congratulate you on the successful installation of the stainless steel flexible chimney lining!
