Clay Chimney Pot Sizing Guide - How to Pick the Correct Size Clay Pot

This chart displays guidelines based on typical dimensions of flue liners. There is no guarantee that the information is accurate and that the item will definitely fit the flue size listed. All flue liner sizes listed are NOMINAL dimensions and do not accurately represent the true measurements of a flue liner. Flue dimensions will vary depending upon manufacturer and age of flue liner. Be sure to accurately measure the flue liner before ordering a chimney pot to insure that the pot will fit properly.

Please note that the chimney pot base should not impinge upon the inside surface of the flue liner. One exception to this is that round based pots may impinge at the corners of a square flue but not by more than 3/4 in.

Square flue liners are nominally sized using OUTSIDE dimensions. Round flue liners are nominally sized using the INSIDE dimensions.

Warning! Do not use decorative chimney tops on any pre-engineered or prefabricated fireplace/chimney system (sometimes referred to as zero-clearance fireplaces) without written consent from the manufacturer. Improper installation of these products in conjunction with these various metal flue systems could result in fire and/or carbon monoxide buildup resulting in property damage and/or death.

† Chimney pot should fit over the flue liner and cement directly to the cap without contacting the flue.
• Chimney pot should fit flue provided the flue is cut flush with the cap.
