The design I'm interested in has the fire going though the pipes.
So it's the pipes that get exposed to the fire.
Basically the fire passes through the water. Not water pipes in the flame.

The build-up of soot and scale is an issue.
This design DOES work.
Ive used it many times.
For the scale I'll need to seriously think about that one as it's bore water.
The pipes that carry the flame I used to clean with a metal pipe cleaner thing.
But down the road it may have had issues with the soott and creasote at the flue end.
So I'm thinking that an access panel would be needed.
As for the clean burn issue.
The exhaust gases were very clean.
Whoever built it got the dimensions correct.
It would use about a bucket of small sticks to fill a bath with hot water.
I'm starting to wonder if it's the only one in existence as I can't find any pics or info on the net. Yet.
Yeast devil! Back to the oven that baked you! And take this tiny ad too:
