There is a hole in the chimney that the HVAC repairman used as a clean out. He taped up the hole, but I have noticed that the tape is coming loose. Could you tell me if there is a chimney plug that is the appropriate part to cover the hole? Please note that it is 5 inches in diameter. Please let me know what you would recommend. This chimney is used for both the boiler and the hot water heater (I have radiator heat.).

Answer:Unfortunately, we no longer carry a chimney plug that will fit a 5 inch diameter hole. However, a plug can usually be made fairly easily from a sheet of metal and can be fastened in place with masonry anchors.
