    I bought stainless steel mesh sheet off eBay.
    I also bought stainless metal ties.
    Easy enough to bend to shape.

    Why not compression fittings? They work for gas.

    I happen to have a 2m length of 25mm od stainless tube, and was wondering if this would make a more robust exhaust option for at least part of the run. The other option would be to do it in copper, but I'd need to make sure that any fittings were capable of handling the heat involved.
    If you use solid tube, you'll still need a flexible section at each end, so you'll be doubling the number of joints with the potential to leak gases. Far more reliable to stick with a properly insulated flexible exhaust. I don't think good quality flexible tubing needs replacing "every few years" either!

    I installed a fully insulated flexible exhaust with a coil drain for condensate from Mellor Online. It never gets more than warm to touch and can be secured up under the deck he’d to be out of the way. It can also be cut short as required.

    Thanks. I never knew it had a trade name.

    I don't think it does; I reckon "Uber" was a simple misprint.

    Thanks, that looks like the bee's knees. Not cheap! But I don't think the exhaust system is somewhere that I want to skimp.
