It has been too warm in MO lately to run my rocket stove heater, but I still want to cash in on heating my water with it. To do this, I turned the central heat blower off and left the pump running. By using a small fire fueled with brush from trees I cut down, I can keep the water nice and hot without boiling. Here's a quick video I did on it:

It also enables me to use nearly all of a tree, the large wood in the cold weather to heat the house and water. The brush is used in the warm weather to heat just the water.
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
