Thnaks for the info on the mixing valves Flyer. I'm gonna live with it the way it is now for the rest of the season. When the stove is shut down next summer I'm going to make some minor changes to the setup and add in a mixing valve.

I was also thinking of doing this and sometimes wish I had. One reason I didn't is because the NG tank is all the way on the other side of the basement and was just installed last spring. Also I want to shut the NG tank right off if possible. I can't stand to give NYSEG a nickle if I don't have to.
If I use all the water in the tank connected to the stove it takes approx. 12 hrs to fully recover. This is normally not an issue though. Now that we have been using it for a while I have only had the valve open up once. Now that I raised the tank up, I am getting a full tank of hot water now instead of 3/4. But when it does get fully up to temp. the water is much hotter than I would like coming out of the tap. As I said before, a mixing valve will be added. I just don't want to tear into it while the stove is in use. Good luck on your install choyt002 I expect you will be happy with it once you get it up and running.
