mmaddock Posted November 19, 2007 Share Posted November 19, 2007 Just been investigating why our wood burning stove doesn't seem to be operating as it was, minus 6C outside is taking its toll and we need the stove back to roasting hot again!I bought an extension to the flu to extend it further up the chimney because I thought maybe it wasn't drawing properly, but on removing the 90deg bend in the flu before it goes up the chimney, the problem becomes immediately obvious - it was almost entirely blocked with ash and a horrid gooey tar.I've cleaned it out as best as possible, and it is working again - but obviously it is going to re-occur. Does anyone know if there is any sort of product that I can use on the flu - maybe some sort of internal coating that would stop this stuff sticking to the flu? Or is there something you can burn in the stove to clean the flu out now and again?Cheers,Matt Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
