A wood stove is conventionally connected to a chimney by utilizing a round pipe. Oftentimes, this pipe shape matches the round outlet that is standard for most stoves. In the case of an oval outlet, however, a special connector is necessary in order to link the two components together seamlessly.
To begin, take a ruler and record the measurements of the oval outlet. Pay special attention to the width and height for use in purchasing an appropriately-sized connector.
In order to create the desired results, your round pipe requires trimming to an appropriate length. Each part of the connector needs to be integrated into the pipe. One side of the connector is larger than the other, and should fit securely into the broader-diameter opening of the oval outlet. The round pipe is where you will fit the second end of the connector.
For a complete, secure connection, use screws that will penetrate both the pipe and connector. These screws must be long enough to do so and must fit the material of the connector; otherwise, the connection will not be strong.
In order to join the stove and the chimney, the connection must be secured. Then, the right length of the round pipe needs to be determined, requiring a measurement from the upper part of the stove, all the way down to the lower part of the chimney.
After measuring it properly, the next step is to make a mark on the desired length for the pipe. Having determined the cut-off point, you can then secure it to the chimney with screws or brackets.
To keep your chimney safe from creatures and dirt, adding a cap is the way to go. Time to securely attach it to the top and you’ll be good to go.
You have made an impeccable connection between a round wood stove pipe and an oval stove outlet.
