    I'm about to install a new Morso Squirrel stove but have stalled as I thought I knew what I was doing until I asked a daft question - flue pipe diameter. The top collar on my stove has an inner diameter of 135mm which I expect is correct for using a 5" (125mm ) vitreous enamel pipe given the fire rope and fire cement/HT silicon packing. I need to offset the flue by about 12" so I'll be using two 15 degree joints with a 1 metre straight pipe taking me up to the roof. I then assumed that I'd need a 5" chimney collar to take a short length of 5" pipe out to the roof and top it all off with a double skin chimney. But then I visited a chandler (who had no chimney collars) just to price up the collar - the information I was getting was that a 5" collar is for a 4" pipe and a 6" collar is for a 5" pipe - I left confused as I struggled to see that a 1/2" radial clearance was needed and that would take quite some packing. Would some kind soul please clarify the pipe/collar size regime for vitreous enamel pipe installations as I may have misunderstood what I was being told. Thanks Martin

    Yep, you guessed correctly

    Thanks Alan, that is really interesting and significant and is the complete opposite of what an apparent expert told me. So it seems that as long as you don’t puff out offensive black smoke then, as far as the Clean Air Act is concerned, your stove doesn’t need to be DEFRA SE compliant.

    Point taken - that seems to make perfect sense, thanks

    It would make life much simpler to go with a single skin flue but the stove I'm going for is DEFRA SE and SIA Eco compliant and from what I understand, in order to achieve this the fire and flue gases must remain hot (I'm happy to be corrected) thus improving the level of combustion and reducing the particulate count. Mines a new build sailaway so I've got the opportunity to install what should be future proofed past 2022 which is when (I believe) the new regulations come in for new stove emissions.

    Thanks - just looked on their website and the prices for this standard flue are much cheaper than anything else I've seen. I'll get in touch with them as I do actually want a twin walled system for my particular install so hopefully they'll be able to quote me happy I did find them on through Google but got myself confused on their website - I was going to call as they seemed to have lots of different options, hence the confusion - thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks - I'll be up that way at the end of next month so I'll pop in and have a look

    That's a new one on me but I kind of get the drift - perhaps a poor choice

    Ha, no pun intended. I've done my research and read up everything I can find and I know where it can go wrong so I'm comfortable in doing the job and as you say it's not over complicated, all I need now are the bits - thanks

    Thanks Jen, I was starting to think that I'd have to shop around but was concerned that I'd have the trouble of getting bits to mate up, hence the desire for a full or kit system - I love the idea of the exotic coolie hats, I've got an old teapot that might come in useful

    Having chosen the multi-fuel stove for the boat my attention then turned to the flue system and I nearly fell off my chair - the kit price for the only kit I can find is almost as expensive as the stove itself. Midland Chandlers flue price is through the roof but I've found the same cheaper by £75 elsewhere. Any suggestions for where to buy flue systems, kits or parts at a reasonable prices ? Cheers Martin (looking for 5 inch to twin wall straight with stove and roof collar plus chimney and hat)
  13. Thanks Alan - interesting reading, the classification of internal refit as a major works is the closest approximation to my situation although the vessel that I will have comes fitted out to a sailaway lined with plumbing and electrics fitted as well as a full bathroom so the work I would be doing would be a partial fit-out but it's certainly a point I would need to clarify before undertaking any work.
  14. Thanks both for the tip off, I'm in the area over Christmas so I'll take a walk and explore the area.
