Top Cap Says: This cowl is for standard chimney pots, its the most basic requirement for any chimney to prevent rain and bird entry. A damp chimney in its self will cause problems from getting more dirty as the fumes will stick to the lining of the pots creating Tar and Creosote. Preventing water entering is also highly recommended for solid fuel stoves and fire – backs. The cowl is also certified safe for gas appliances.

Tip 1: It is advised to replace any crow guards with this cowl, as crow guards still allow small birds and nesting while giving no rain protection.

Tip 3: Fits pots up to 10 inches.
