A good news story this week! Here is a Clearview 750 Stove that I swept in Steeple Bumpstead not too long ago. Its an impressive stove, the largest on in the Clearview range. It has a phenomenal heat output of 14Kw. As you can see from the photograph, I used my large Viper to sweep it; a piece of equipment specially designed by the Germans for sweeping lined appliances. It is basically old-style sweeping rods, but on a continuous real, so no time is wasted fitting rods together. A very fast, efficient and clean method for sweeping a chimney. This Clearview stove worked so efficiently over the last burning season it produced only a very fine soot when it was swept. This shows to the sweep that the stove is working well and has been burnt efficiently, i.e. nice and hot with plenty of oxygen being allowed into the stove.
