Has anyone had good or bad experience with the "Solid/Flue" system for dealing with multiple hearth structures? (http://solidflue.com)
Our 1740 house was build around a massive stone chimney that received five interior hearths, one "furnace opening" in the basement, and an attic level meat-smoking chamber!
A single 6" or 8" flex pipe has been fitted to the main hearth on the first floor. A chimney sweep doubted that the smaller hearth "throat" openings would take standard flexible liners.
I haven't been up on the roof yet to measure the "modern" brick structure built on top of the stone base. It looks to be about four feet by three.
Should I be worried about lining the hearths where occasional fires would be laid? We anticipate running two wood stoves regularly, and occasional fires in some of the other hearths.
For high efficiency wood stoves, is an 8" flue a necessary part of the system?
