Really? I thought any hydronic system was called a boiler... You sure that's right? :)

They are actually "water Stoves"...............in other words, a large tea kettle. :P

200 gal.tea kettle without the whistle !! We enjoyed our short "vacation",we went 14 hrs.from loading Sat.P/M to Sun. A/M,that's a vacation after the 5-6hr. loading times during the bitter cold we had,tonight is forecast to drop to 13*, not much wind,we should get 8 hrs.from tonight's load. So much fun in this weather,digging wood from under snow covered tarp,slopping thru the snow to load the stove,we will absolutely be ready for coal boiler set-up when we get the $$ for that project.
