It's true, I'd no idea what stove he has, he didn't say but I've designed thermosyphon heating systems and installed a lot of woodstoves and back boilers and thought I'd help - I've been worried all evening !
Our latest system, a Rayburn, heats 400 litres of water and six radiators. I installed a pressure release valve in the water tank but the installation manual also recommends an open expansion tank for a thermosyphon system and of course with the output of this particular stove, I'd never run the water heating without having a small radiator open to act as a dump load if the water overheats.
It's difficult to give advice without knowing much about Troy's stove and his pipe runs and so on - but I'm relieved to hear that you consider that his system's safe, so I can go to bed now - it's 1am here !

Yeast devil! Back to the oven that baked you! And take this tiny ad too:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 carshttp://woodheat.net
