Hi Dave,

I can't recommend a business in San Diego, but this part is commonly available at masonry supply businesses, in various shapes and sizes. If you don't get a local with a specific response to your question, to the phone book and look at the masonry supply businesses.

Good luck with your search,

JED

Hey david,

I am surprised to hear this. I guess the masonry fire place has been replaced by the modular fire place: buy it at Walmart, and plug it in...

Yeah, it's the old problem of fireplace supplies in hot climates. Drain tile won't withstand heat, and four inches isn't nearly big enough. You could look for a cast iron pipe, that would be a good, if pricey substitute. Ask at a big plumbing supply. Or, you could get flue tile shipped in. Any masonry supply or brickyard should be able to do a special order.

This was one of the reasons I ended up going with the Dura$ chimney. I have to say I am amazed by how cool the outside of the chimney stays during burns. The cost on the other hand... OUCH.

Dave,
If you want to consider ordering from RCP special order, we can both order and split the shipping, probably will be less than Duravent even with pricey shipping charges.

As far as I know, clay flue liners are not allowed in new construction in CA --earthquake code-- anyway, ever since the SC-AQMD banned wood-burning fireplaces in new construction, wood-burning fireplace supplies have been hard to find.

I went with the duravent -- no complaints, except that 2, 2' sections arrived dented -- the vendor replaced them free of charge.

BTW: wood-fired ovens are still legal in LA/OC, but not outdoor fireplaces.

Also forgot to mention, I've seen two clay liners split on a temporary pizza oven -- we figured they must have had some internal moisture as they were dry stacked.
