Has anyone designed a system that uses hot water produced by and rocket stove with thermal electricity to run the pumps?

I am curious if anyone has successfully built something like this.

Sure, but why use pumps? Build your water heater to utilize natural circulation.

Nathan Lewis : You are not the 1st fellow member of Permies dot com to think along the exact same lines you are following,

Please understand that a properly functioning Rocket Mass Heater works only because of the Freaky high temperatures that it 'Fires' at ! - 1000 º F

Note that 212 º ƒ is the temperature at which Water Flashes to Steam !!! As such there is an inherent danger close to the Historical event of the
" Boston Marathon Bombing" - only with more fatalities, and more full thickness, full body burns !

Below is a link to one of the very few generally safe Rocket Mass Heater RMH fired hot water heaters !

Please examine this working model, carefully read the comments that follow, and ask your questions at that Thread !

For the Good of the Craft ! Big AL
