HVAC supply house. 4" is very common with gas appliances.

I think a man does what he can, untill his destiny is revealed. Right now that is trying to sell my EFM plate boilers in 520 and 700 sizes.

True, but Type B vent is neither coal, wood pellet or heating oil rated. Only rated for natural gas.

He's looking for "Direct Vent"...that will have positive pressure. Type B is a terrible recommendation for a solid fuel.:

I didn't recommend anything except a HVAC supply house (Who will have what he needs). The comment about 4" being used for gas was in response to the rarity of 4" comment. Sorry for any confusion.

Try using the same brand for all your fittings, Duravent is what I chose and got great discounts.
Good luck CS

I've got a direct vent stove (or really a power vent) using 4" .I have used black stove pipe and galvanized smoke pipe the past couple of years I really don't like those adjustable elbows so I was thinking of trying some 4" flexible stainless chimney liner and changing it out after a year or two. It probably isn"t up to code but I would like to eliminate all those joints screws etc. A chimney guy usually has a bunch of short cutoff pieces I could get. I hope someone might give me some idea on whether this is a good or bad solution. the snap together stove pipe just has too many chances and places to leak

Seen recently at rental outlet at a Home Depot that they carry the diamond core drill bits and drilling motor base. :idea:

These set up properly will drill a smooth hole through a thick concrete wall in short time...not much fuss invovled.

At this point I just want to use the recommended piping and not mess around. Its not worth skimping on material to me. They provided me with a few stainless steel vent piping when I purchased but I need more parts.
