This type of chimney cowl is only used to provide flue ventilation in an unused chimney and should NEVER be used on a live chimney. If you bought this on the advice of a builders merchant they should be shot!

I bought the ceramic one because it fitted the pot that I was buying and it was there. Cash flow problems may mean I can't afford to get another one.
