To strengthen flue pipe connections use short metal to metal self tappers, available in our Useful Items collection.
As with all vitreous pipe the bottom end narrows to a lesser diameter to enable insertion into other pieces of pipe (male is always on top). Key reason is that any condensation that trickles down inside pipe cannot escape. Straight lengths can be cut using a grinder and 115mm cutting disc (available from this online store).Top tip: No fire cement or glue of any kind is used when connecting vitreous pipe to vitreous pipe - it is just push-fit. When to use fire cement on flue joints? Use the SEARCH function and type "sealing flue joints".
Great quality vitreous pipe, with a good finish to them. More so impressed with the great service yet again from Stovefitters. 1 of the 45 degree bends delivered was the wrong size and after a quick phone call the team couriered the replacement part the very next day. Thanks again.
I ordered a couple of 5” vitreous enamel bends. These are of a high quality and competitively priced. Dispatch and delivery was very quick. Very pleased with both the product and the service. Will definitely use this company again. Highly recommended.
Great product. Simple installation, thanks.
Great, perfect fit
With a bit of thought and a tape measure the installation went well. Never fitted a full installation before. Would not hesitate in the future. Good advice form the guys. Thank you.
