    This is a general view of the house's chimney family (all in all 3 chimneys):

    Sorry to be the guy to say it.. but you need a pro, and you probably will be putting in two
    liners. That chimney is really unsafe with it being unlined. Then you have the offset flue
    tiles on the insi...

    If you're referring to the pipe that your arrow is pointing to, it's a vent stack for your
    sewer lines.The arrow is not pointing to the stack protruding from the roof and close the

    I was thinking that if the sink drains into that vent and it drains good, that might tell us
    something.If the sink has a separate drain and vent you could maybe remove the whole pipe thru
    the attic or...

    I would suspect it's an old double chimney flue. You should have them inspected by a pro,
    especially if they're still being used.This is what goes over them. seems that they are being
    used by the fur...

    Looks like a chimney to me and yes it needs some work, if the furnace is venting thru this, I
    think it should have a steel liner.This should have been posted in masonary.There is nothing
    even close to...

    Hello, a recent acquired house has several plumbing stack vents going to the roof, a chaminey
    with cap, and it has something that seemingly is missing a cap: it may be an hvac vent (I am
