Log Lighter Connection

Recommended Posts

Came across these fittings on a log lighter that I haven't seen before. Appears to be copper tubing. Need a little advice on this one.

Also, on older clay lined brick chimneys with unparged smoke chambers, what is the general recommendation among inspectors? Current NFPA requirements are to parge the smoke chamber but never see it on older chimneys. Thanks.

NFPA descriptions pretty much condemn any chimney that's not brand new. Think how many chimneys we see with exposed brick cores, or minor hairline cracks or gaps in tiles.

They're all screwed according to NFPA. The only way to know for sure is to do a Level II camera inspection, so that's what I tell folks.
