and I might add, three kilo's isn't much at all. I am really encouraging people to use the cleanout to heat the lower end of the furnace when turning it on, so it's nice to keep it clean. I have folks sticking their bench torches in the cleanout on a pilot flame. This has eliminated problems with thermal shocking pots or so it seems. It's really only an issue on the 28 and 34 inch furnaces.
