    Quoting from Salamander Stoves

    ~~~~~~~~
    it is a system designed to provide an effective draw on a system of approx. 3.6m high. The flue size increases from 100mm diameter to 125mm diameter and an A?D Swedish cowl have also been utilised to negate the relatively short flue height.

    3.6 metre high = relatively short flue height

    There you go!, thanks for that Bernard and lostinm, very helpful. It’s what I call a teeny bit of pragmatism which is all that I was asking about. So much better to be helpful than send smart arse replies.
    Cheers

    Worth noting, however, that Bernard is a layman in this field, whereas others such as myself actually have the proper training and qualifications.

    This 'keyboard warrior' mends and services boilers during the day, and tries to pass on helpful information during leisure time. Your original post read " I know how it should be done, but don't want to do it". That is how "pragmatic" reads to me. In the final analysis, you can do what you please, many do who ignore 'smart arse' answers.

    Well get you! It’s a pity your training didn’t include ‘how to communicate in an effective and non patronising manner’

    ‘Question is should the flue which will go up through the roof and be circa 2m long be single rigid pipe or a twin walled flexi pipe’

    not quite sure how you interpret my original post in the way you have.

    Anyway, your help to others is to be applauded but if you want to give advise I suggest a more amenable style of communication would be appreciated. We can all be smart arses, it’s not a difficult skill

    Well apologies if I caused offence at any point. I thought my answers were clear, helpful, and to the point, but we shall have to agree to disagree on that
