Chimney & Fireplaces/Preway Type 8 Chimney pipe
I had a 2' section of Preway Type 8 chimney pipe damaged (above the roof) from a falling tree. I understand that I must use Preway pipe which is no longer manufactured. I found someone selling a section of Preway 8-A on the Internet but I have not been able to find Preway Type A. I am wondering if Preway type 8-A will connect properly to Preway type 8? If not can I bring the bent section to a good sheet metal shop and have it replicated - or is that a problem waiting to happen? Thank you for your advice.
Hello Al, you can not mix and match the pipes but an A might fit a B if that is all you can find I would get that pipe and I would have a local Certified Chimney Sweep www.csia.org, (there you can look up by zip code to find one near you) take a first hand look at what you have, they should be able to help and be sure the pipes will work properly together.
Hope this helps
