Yeah it is stainless steel, I have a scrap piece a few feet long sitting in the barn. If it was aluminum, I'd be about ready to sue those guys and reline it myself :D

Thanks for your help guys, I knew one of you a whole bunch of you would have some good knowledge on the subject :)

  I haven't been with this thread the whole time, just read through some of it yesterday, but reminded me of building my house. I built the house, but hired a mason to lay brick and build my chimney, for wood stove.  I told the guy while he was doing the chimney, I'd like to have the gap between the liner and the block and bricks filled in solid, and he said what with?, so I just started carrying 5 gallon buckets of fill sand over, and putting the bucket on the scaffold.  Well, he just dumped them in, and my chimney is filled right to the top with sand.  Wouldn't have to worry about a chimney fire if you had it filled with sand, would you?  Wonder why you couldn't just knock a hole in the top of the chimney where it is sealed up with concrete and dump sand down into it till you get  it filled in? And of course, fill the top in with concrete.  Then you could just take that nasty restricting pipe out.

I don't think I would want the weight and the pressure of a chimney filled with sand (around the liner).
I think there would be too much outward load on the chimney brick and block. In time, I think it will settle and seek a way out.

But hopefully didn't happen and never will. :)

If I'm following the OP's description correctly, that sand would just flow down and fill up his cleanout as well. Might be OK on a chimney & installation designed with that in mind, but I'm not sure how well that would work here.

  My chimney has a cleanout at the basement floor, the flue liner is sitting on 4" block up to where the stove hooks onto the liner, and always thought I'd get a bit of sand leaking into it, but never have. It's 30 years old now.
