hi ben, your compost heated bath on your site is not my first exposure to heating water with compost but the size of your pile got me thinking

Do you think it would be possible to have a swimming pool that has a pump that is pumping water from the pool, through a pile and then back into the pool and maintain a temperature above 100F or do you think that the cold, winter air would out compete the temperature from one pile?

im sure it would be possible with enough large piles but then the question becomes, is it practical without cutting a whole acre of compostable materials every year?
Whatever. Here's a tiny ad:
