Questions on 8'' Diameter Sweepsall Brushes with Torque Lock Connector

- I am looking to use this brush for a pellet stove insert. My setup is as follows. 10 feet of 4 " S\S pipe and the remainder 8" pipe to the roof. I would like to use this brush on the inside of the house and be able to get threw the 4" pipe and then clean the 8" pipe also. Question 1 is will the brush bristles fold to fit threw the 4" and will this brush clean the 8" pipe? Question 2 is do you have a adaptor that will allow this brush to fit on rods that are not made by this company. I see that the brush is equipped with a special fitting that will not fit on 3/8 npt. Thanks.
- Dan, I wouldn't recommend this for your purpose. 1) the 8" brush is flexible but may get stuck in the 4" pipe. 2) There are rod adapters to go to a 1/4 npt rod; http://www.northlineexpress.com/1-4-npt-female-to-tlc-female-adapter-14ftf.html Here are some other options; Option 1: 8" Brush http://www.northlineexpress.com/chimney/chimney-brushes/chimney-brushes-round/8-round-pro-sweep-medium-duty-poly-chimney-brush-34608-34608.html 4" Brush http://www.northlineexpress.com/chimney/chimney-brushes/chimney-brushes-round/4-round-pellet-stove-and-dryer-vent-brush.html Adapter for 8" Brush http://www.northlineexpress.com/1-4-to-3-8-npt-adapter.html Rods http://www.northlineexpress.com/48-fiberglass-chimney-brush-rod-1-4-npt-30624.html Option 2: 8" Kit http://www.northlineexpress.com/sooteater-rotary-chimney-cleaning-system-rch205.html 4" Kit http://www.northlineexpress.com/sooteater-rotary-pellet-stove-cleaning-system-rps204.html Extra 4" Rods if needed. http://www.northlineexpress.com/sooteater-pellet-rods-2-pack.html Hope that helps...Robert
