Has anyone ever wrapped the heat exchanger with copper to heat water. Also, an old propane tank cleaned out makes a great thermal heat storage when filled with water. If the tank was lower then the floor, would it circulate a radiant system from the heat displacement?

Mark Masters : The tank needs to be higher than the heating source, to thermo-syphon and the diameter of the tubing needs to increase with distance,
3/4'' I.D. is a good place to start ! Hope this was useful and timely ! For the Good of the Crafts ! Big AL !
