Duct Tape

Can you use duct tape to fix a fireplace flue?

sure why not

No, it will simply burn off and possibly start a fire. There is metal foil tape available that may solve your problem depending on what you are trying to fix. You may need to replace pipe instead of trying to patch or fix what you have.

You need to be registered for working with gas appliances otherwise you may become liable in the event of an accident arising. If the fireplace flue is non gas then it would be ok to use duct tape to fix it yourself if it is not near any part that will be heated. Never use tape on any heated part.

You should not attempt to repair any gas appliances yourself unless you are a qualified and registered gas engineer.
