The web-address for warmwatersource does not work. Is there another address ? or a brand name so I can do a further search.

I have been experimenting with building one myself. So-far I have had fair results. I am getting about a 25-30 degree at about 10 GPM, but with a 24' X 15' pool the temp didn't rise as fast as I would like. I have a few modifications to try (bigger chimney, an adjustable vent door to adjust draft (better combustion), brick lining to retain heat, and more copper in the firebox). Anyother ideas would be appreciated. I have all winter for modifications.

I am thinking of building a pool heater like you described. It sounds great! I would love to see some pictures to see how you did it. My e-mail is [email protected] Thanks!

peter1, check this link for the wood burning heater you can buy;

http://extendaswim.com

no price listed on the web, I emailed them to find out.

I can't quite picture what the homemade one looks like either. I can picture something in my head that might work though.

Now that it is winter, The 'build' has slowed, and I just got a digital camera, so if I can find out how to get a picture to you I will.

It is not pretty, a 55gal. drum on its side, a 5in dia. chimney pipe out the end, and a metal door on the front.

Hopefully this weekend I'll take the pictures.
