MUCKY OLD FLUES

Posted by hardy scot, 16 January 2012 · 221 views

I read with interest the article in q & a of canal boat mag on Mucky old flues ( FEB 2012 ),Page 85 & we have the same problem of condensation/tar sepping between outer joints on to the roof. Question is their any solutions or chemical i can purchase to remove this wet / runny tar sunstance from the roof. Would welcome members handy tips to get rid of this.

We have recently discovered the use of 'Bar Keepers Friend' stain remover purchased from Sainsburys and this is the only thing we have found to clear away all the tar from our roof/sides. It left the paintwork in great condition too.

you can buy flue cleaner,you put it on a smouldring fire,once burnt out the tar dries wich then makes it easy to brush the flue down,its called wizzard,

I've found liquid Turtle Wax does the trick. I guess any liquid car polish would work.
