Hello everyone. I'm looking into the possibility of installing a power vented stoker in my finished basement. Can anyone tell me what the longest run of vent pipe is that I can use? The stove I'm leaning towards is the Leasure Line Pioneer LE with the SWG power vent system. My problem is that I can't vent it directly on an ouside wall. Where I will be putting the stove, there is an interior wall then a "utility closet" of about 6 ft. width, then the concrete block foundation wall. Does this sound do-able?

Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks

Nothing is impossible for people who don't have to do it themselves.

I saw a page similar to that link earlier. But the don't mention venting a coal stove - just oil or gas. Do you know if the lengths they give apply to coal as well? When I was first looking at stokers, a dealer mentioned that I could only go with about 8 ft of pipe if I was power venting. This seems way shorter than the max that is posted on the link.
