Flue pipe and foil tape on oil fired boiler
What is the correct type/kind of flue vent pipe for a residential oil fired boiler? New Yorker S-AP, 6" flue , 1.15 GPH.
Reason I ask..... 2 days ago, I began to smell an acrid odor of flue gas in the boiler room. Just a hint. CO detector did not go off, nor did the smoke detector. I even tried a second CO detector in the room to be sure.
So I notice some soot marks around the "ribs" of the flue vent pipe (in the elbow where you twist to get a different angle). The joints of the vent pipe pieces have foil tape on them. So I get some foil tape and tape up the "ribs". 4 hours later the smoke detector goes off and there is a smell of melting plastic. No CO readings on either CO detector. I sniff around and find the sticky glue is melting on the foil tape and THAT is the smell.
OK, (1) what is the correct type/kind of flue vent pipe and (2) do you use foil tape on the seams? If so, I figure there must be a special foil tape where the sticky glue doesnt melt off and smell bad?
