I installed a new wood stove and metalbestos stack this past summer. Yesterday I noticed small drips of water coming down on the woodstove off of the "lower bucket" of the ceiling support. I climbed to the top of the roof and checked for any icing, but didn't see any. I climbed in the attic and removed the insulation protection shield and didn't notice any moisture or water there either. I finally swept the chimney and it continues to drip. The water has a brown tint to it and smells like creosote, which makes me believe it's coming from inside the stack towards the outside and then dripping. The woodstove has been running pretty much non-stop for almost 2 months now. This drip just started yesterday and I'm trying to determine how to stop it because it drips on the stove and smells/stains the stove and house. My initial thought was to remove the single wall stovepipe from the stove up to the dripless adaptor and look up inside to see if the metalbestos inner overlap was damaged and letting moisture through. Other than that, I guess the next step would be to jack up the stack and pull out the dripless adaptor and reinstall/seal it. When I installed it I didn't put any high temp silicone or anything on that joint, but am thinking about trying to pump it full of high temp silicone this evening from the inside. Anybody have this happen to them or know of a fix? Thank you very much.
