Chimney Liner-Fail

STEVEusaPASTEVEusaPA Member Posts: 4,416
Customer calls for PM on their boiler. Said she smelled oil burning. She tells me she had the chimney lined over the summer.
Took the flue pipe off and saw this...
I had her call the company and send these pictures. The owner came over in less than 1/2 hour, apologetic. Busted out the cemented in galvanized pipe, connected ss thru the wall and patched it.

    Not much worse than what mine was.

    Mine was a 6" stuffed in a 4" x 5" opening and then it was in 3 pieces where the chimney was offsets.   It looked ok at the boiler but they couldn't get a brush up it and terra cotta was falling down which obviously shouldn't happen with a SS liner.

    Either way..... The liner actually made the chimney far more dangerous just because of how bad it was done.
