I have installed a woodburner in a new house. I have fitted a clay pot adaptor into the chimney liner & cowled the chimney up top. As soon as the fire gets going tary water starts dripping down from the chimney and continues, complete with nasty smell and hissing until the fire goes out.

    i need to know more , are you burning wet and unseasoned timber?. is your flue lined from top to bottom (without any defects)?. WHY was a cowl put on top of the pot and what sort?. has the flue been swept lately?. do you have smoke belching back?. you say the house is new,newly built?,ask the builder what sort of liner has been fitted. if you can answer these questions then we can narrow the problem down. look forward to hearing back from you. paul
