WITH ONLY 12 USES, THIS HEAVILY CLOGGED CHIMNEY IS SHOWING SIGNS OF RECOVERY
WHEN USED AS DIRECTED, KATHITE CHIMNEY CLEANER WILL SOFTEN CREOSOTE, CAUSING IT TO FALL BACK INTO YOUR FIREPLACE IN LARGE CHUNKS. YOU CAN EITHER BURN IT AGAIN, OR REMOVE IT WITH YOUR ASH.
Just a note to tell you that this stuff is amazing. Being a relatively new wood stove user I fell victim to the usual mistakes. Purchasing from unreputable wood dealers selling unseasoned wood as seasoned, poor burning habits such as improper draft control and low heat smoldering fires. Thankfully I have since learned from my mistakes but not before creosoting my chimney to dangerous levels.
I have had my chimney cleaned regularly but had a thick black tar creosote buildup and glaze covering about 60%-70% of my brick, clay tile lined flu. I was quoted hundreds of dollars to have this removed, with no guarantee to flu damage or results. Financially having this done would far outweigh the savings of burning wood, so I opted out, pending further research.
I timidly used the stove periodically on the colder days keeping my fingers crossed that I would not have a flu fire. I tried other brands of flu cleaners with little or no results.
While searching the Internet last spring I came across your product, and it's great reviews on wood burning websites, so I immediately rushed out to buy some. Being springtime, I never really got to use it much as the wood burning season was coming to a close.
I have burned approximately a dozen or so fires this fall and have used your product every time and I am simply astonished at the results.
Three times now I have went to the clean-out in my basement and removed about 6 cups of black tar creosote each time. It is falling off the chimney in big clumps. I inspected my chimney today and it is now 90% clear right down to the red clay liner. I am SO PLEASED, to say the least. I shall have a bottle of Kathite sitting by my stove from now on. I have even recommended it to a few friends who have also purchased it after I proudly showed off my bucket of tar creosote and told them my story.
Kudos to you for this product, and keeping it at a reasonable price. Every wood stove owner should know about this great product.
