Hi! You should put in the v-basket and it should turn down enough and yet keep drawing. If it doesn't want to keep drawing then add more pipe. The burn time is hard to determine, an extra two feet of pipe or a hill by the side of your house can affect the draw. I would go right through your 6" with the 4" pellet pipe.

Hi, I know this will heat up to 2000+sqf... but will it turn down low enough by opening the flue (and still burn correctly) for a house that is only approx 1000sqf? It does have high ceilings. Would the "low temp basket" be needed? What would the burn time be with the low temp basket? Also since we have a 6" double wall chimney, would this have to be adapted down to a...??
Planning to use my Wiseway for a hot tub (maybe 600 gal???). Not wild about the snorkel wood stoves, eager to try pellets for ease of use during heat up. 1. How much of the 40,000 BTU output goes to the jacket? 2. Can you use 2 or 3 water jackets (one on each zig zag of the stove)? 3. The reference to heating 100 gal of water to 160 degrees, is that with a pump or just thermal convection, and over what time period? 4. Should I consider creating a custom jacket to draw out the max amount of BTUs?
Sounds like it will work great! Go straight up off the top as high as you can. Then for every two horizontal feet, put eight vertical feet on top. 30 degree elbow would probably just count as part of the straight pipe.
Dear folks, I see the recommendations for having a straight vertical line for the whole venting system. Is this 100% necessary? I am looking at replacing our old single walled Warner wood stove with a Wiseway. We have a 3 story masonry and cinder block chimney that extends 4 ft above the roof and has a really really good draw. Looks to me like the wiseway flue would need 2 30 degree bends over less than 2 ft of pipe to get to the thimble. Does this sound OK?
The initial burning torch will induce a draft to go up the pipe. Smoke will follow the easiest way up and so as long as pellets are blocking the hopper run then the smoke will continue going up the flue and out. Combustion needs air and fuel so the burning pellets won't travel up into the hopper since gaskets around the lids prevent air from seeping in from that direction.
