is there a coil or something I can set on top of my unit to help preheat the water? Thanks Dave

This is the recommended method: http://www.hilkoil.com/

Do a search on the forum for DHW, or Hilkoil or preheat. There are at least a dozen threads on this topic.

Or search on HOT WATER COIL too. Yes, you can add a coil inside your stove, depending on how far away it is, you may need a pump, aquastat, and all the safety devices needed.
