problems are due to wet perlite, If due to the way the Rocket Mass Heaters are Laid out- Water first from the Cob, and then running back down hill from the 'mostly' horizontal
run of our RMHs could be delivering even more condensed water vapors (produced from liberating the % of water water by weight in our fire wood, and of course the water
produced in burning the Hydrocarbons !) and there soaking some section of Cob located above our supposed to be insulating Perlite!
Like a fellow member once said in these Threads ''I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around Thinking like Fire'', ''and flowing like a gas'' second opinions please !
I expect that this is a possible source of some of the problems people are having, but is it possible this is way more common than we think ! For the craft Big AL !
