You know the zombie apocalypse might be just around the corner so I wanted to show you More
Okay, now it’s time to get our cold water redirected to an old water tank and the pipes connected to the stove, make sure that the check and shut off valves are sound and I would do all of this before lighting the stove btw, so your process should go in this order:
- Copper coils placed into stove pipe
- Water tank heater pipes connected to the coils inside of the stove pipe
- Chopped firewood placed inside of the stove pipe and fire stoked (to blazing hot), have enough firewood since you want this to be a continuous effort
Please protect your hands and body, the water and the steam that comes out will be very hot (180 degrees), don’t even touch the water tank since that will also burn you very badly. I tested out how hot it was by removing the pipe from the tank (see picture) and there was no electricity pushing this water out, pure water pressure and it was so very hot that it melted a plastic bottle that I had placed in front of the spout. This diy science project is useful and a good piece of know-how knowledge to possess, (solar power and gas energy for what huh?) it only requires some caution because (yes, I will reiterate) you are dealing with water pressure and extremely hot water. I hope that this Youtube video has been helpful and you can use it when the time calls for some out of the box thinking!
10. This is a copper coil that will be integral for the water heater | diy smart home
I made this copper coil for the non-electric heater, it’s a real DIY smart home project!
