T-piece with cleaning hatch and cond. (ST06)
Chimney tees are different, but each one has several useful functions.
Types of chimney tee:
With condensate drain
If the first option is designed to check and connect the inclined sections of the chimney, then the second is designed to collect condensate, respectively, it should be installed at the beginning of the horizontal pipe.
Do not forget that there are only two sizes, they are determined by the angle of inclination of 45 and 90 degrees.
This provides additional important information that you should know. In addition to standard parts, there are also:
Single wall tees
Whichever option you choose, it is very important that the part is made of stainless steel, or the inner contour of the pipe is made of stainless steel, and the outer one is made of galvanized steel, between which the insulating material must necessarily pass.
When should a tee with a condensate drain be installed?
In fact, everything is very simple. If the chimney rests on the floor, then a condensate drain is necessary.
