Working on fireplace project, and I would like to have a fireplace on
main flor and basement. I also will install both fireplaces pointing
to same chimney, so big question is, can I use/share 1 set of pipes
with 2 fireplaces? I would never use both fireplaces at same time.
I'm also planning to use 2100C temperture heat tested pipes (double
Pleae let me know!
If I install 6" pipes all the way, I will make sure I sure fireplace
that has spec for 6" pipes only. Since this is a new project, I have
the flexibility of purchasing the right fireplace that fits.
If not, I will install 2 chimneys, what a waste of dollars! It will
cost be about an extra 1500$ for 2nd set of pipes wit 2100c heat
tested, and can be instlled within 2 inches of material.

I wanted to do something similar but was told it does not meet code.
The way it was explained to me is that the exhaust will flow to the
best vent. This could be the second fire place which means you could
be pumping smoke or carbon monoxide into your house instead of out the
top of the chimney. Although I haven't done it yet I'm going to run
two 4 inch aluminum vents inside one flew.
