Default Stove pipe horizontal qn

Soon mn yurt will be set up.

I need some info about mn multi burner.

Qn 1 the horizontal double-walled pipe that goes from the stove through the yurt wall, how do I clean it from the shaft?

Qn 2 the chimney must necessarily be vertical or can it also be horizontal and then not a vertical pipe Does that possibly have to do with the flow of the stove or lack of flow of the gases?

Install a 'clean out' stovepipe fitting where the horizontal and vertical pipe meet on the outside of the yurt. That allows cleaning the horizontal run.

As for horizontal only, man I would NOT do that. Chimneys and stove pipes always exit vertically, after an ell or two. Hot gas needs to move vertically for a good draw. Even installs in camping hot tents have the pipe running up on about a 45 degree angle from the bendable pipe fitting.

Burn dry wood. Plus give your stove a good shot of air each firing with dampers wide open. That helps minimize the buildup of creosote in the pipe. I've 'never' swept our stovepipe in 22 years, because I burn dry wood, and with the flue wide open and a very hot fire at the start of the burn. But that's just me. Burn safe.

Good luck.

Another point. Not yurts, but...in new home construction, by code the top of a fireplace/woodstove chimney stack that's within 10 lineal feet of a ridgeline, needs to extend ABOVE that ridge by 2'.

Beats me if that applies to yurts or not, since they have a conic roof and no ridge. Just thought I'd mention it though.

Also, the stack on my yurt extended above the ring by a couple feet. Even at that height, and with a spark arrestor -not a rain cap- I still got ember burns in the cotton canvas.

I 'WOULD NOT' do a horizontal pipe. I'm thinking that wind could blow embers directly at the yurt. Just sayin'. Good luck.

Also, worse yet, I'm thinking under certain circumstances a horizontal pipe could allow lots of embers to get blown into the yurt when the door is opened. Muy malo.
