Hey guys,

I have a three year old wood burning pool heater that I purchased from warmwatersolutions. Parts of it need to be sanded and repainted. We're moving and can't take it with us and it's not the kind of thing the next owner will want or understand...

Email for info!

Its been a couple years since I've used the heater. Being a prototype, it had some maintenance issues, and I'd build it differently the next time.

Instead of using PVC inlet and outlet headers I'd use 1 1/2" copper pipe and 45s instead. That way copper sleeve nipples could be drilled and soldered into the headers. No glue would be required. The Copper Bond was pretty good, but I spent too much time fixing up leaks.

The idea works great. Three to four degrees increase from the inlet to the outlet is pretty good. The pool was up to 30 degrees C in a couple days.

As for stainless steel, that would be a great idea. I'm not a welder, but I like to build stuff. The whole idea here is I am trying to save a couple thousand dollars, and still get a warm pool. This barrel/copper pipe prototype cost maybe $200.00. The water stayed crystal clear, and no, it didnt' turn green.

I'm opening the pool again this summer, (my kids are bugging me), and I'll hook up the old barrel heater and see if it has any leaks. If there is too many, I'm going to scrap it and maybe try and fabricate some copper headers.

I'll keep you all posted.

Heatyourpool.
