Well.I'll be damned....I'm hoping your old American Ingenuity wins the day ! If you ever get the cash to convert to a stoker fed boiler operation,your network's already in. Good Luck !

An ex girlfriend wanted a hot tub party in February. She didn't have a hot tub. I got a large inflatable pool and filled it in her garage. She had a modine heater in the garage. I tapped into the supply and return with some strategically placed valves and fittings. I ran this to a hundred feet of 1/2 inch copper pipe I sweated together and submersed in the pool. I turned the high limit up to 200 and set the low limit at 180. The pool became a "zone" for the oil fired boiler! Lol! Got the pool up to 105 degrees in several hours. Fog formed in the garage. It actually worked pretty well. We used it a couple of times. Gotta love a redneck hot tub :D
