When searching for proper chimney pots, you may realize that it’s harder than you first thought. A chimney pot must be selected depending on the size of the top and fireplace opening and the size of the chimney flue that it will cover.
- Usually, for square flues, the area is 1/10th of the fireplace opening.
- Chimney pots represent about 1/15th to 1/20th the size of the fireplace opening.
- For chimney pots, the inside base must be at least as large as the largest dimension of the chimney flue it will stay on, if not larger.
