    I've discovered a decent amount of information online regarding the Canadian version of the GFX known as the Power-Pipe (www.renewability.com). If you're considering a drain heat recovery system,...

    I'm talking with Joel and Francois specifically at Power-Pipe. They seem to be good guys and eager to help people make this technology work for them.

    The major expense seems to be going with a...

    I've been speaking with the folks at Power Pipe too, in the hopes of getting a system from them just as effective for a little less money (or more effective for the same money.)

    I'll post how...
  4. The folks behind the GFX units I'm considering...

    The folks behind the GFX units I'm considering (www.gfxtechnology.com) don't publish a price list for the more customized units they make. I knew the pricing of their basic off-the-rack models from...

    I've had to re-design this system today, mostly because of one factor I hadn't taken into account: the potential for Legionnaire's disease.

    My original plan was to have a 119 gallon...

    I was just intrigued with the particular slide (the one entitled "tank-in-tank: the advantages") that showed how the tank-in-tank system preheated the same amount of water as the coil-based cylinder...

    I'll give it 10 minutes and this guy is going to start pulling someone's hair and calling him a doodyface.

    Bison:

    I've found a great woodburning boiler stove for the living room (here's a better photo) that will easily heat the whole house as well as provide a 50,000 BTU/hr boiler (as opposed to the...

    Bison:

    Maybe someone else in this Forum will have some constructive suggestions. I'm planning to give a call to the folks at Heat Transfer Products (SuperStor), TriangleTube and ESSE Wood Stoves...

    No worries. Bison understood what I needed. I appreciate you responding.



    For the record though, I do care about my net carbon footprint. That's why I'm building a house that only requires...

    Can I get a Hallelujah here?



    Bison:

    I'm glad you're on this list and not only understand what I'm trying to do, and how it all works, but why someone would want to do it. Your feedback is...

    I appreciate your 2-cents. Seriously. I've done my research though and am content with what I've learned and the technology I'll be utilizing. The water in this particular shower should hit...

    Poll: I'd definitely go tankless, because of the...

    I'd definitely go tankless, because of the maximum temp rise needed of around 30 degrees and because of the sheer volume of water my primary shower would blow through in a given day. Space is also...

    Here's an illustration of the shower set-up. I'm eliminating the transfer valve so that all six shower heads can work simultaneously, and setting the whole system up so custom showers can be...

    The funny thing about it is that the house into which this system is going will be so super-insulated, that in the dead of winter here in Maine, it'll take around 12,500 BTU/hr to keep the house at...
  17. Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad the numbers...

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad the numbers look to be closer to 2 gallons/day rather than 5!

    I lucked out with my well; it produces 20 gallons/minute. Pressure drop with the GFX I'll be...

    Jim:

    I forgot to point out one thing. Extrapolating from the chart on the Noritz site (see specifically the 841/842 series column) and factoring in the necessary rise in temperature, 400k...
  19. Jim: I'm still a little confused here. You...

    Jim:

    I'm still a little confused here. You say I'd be using roughly 5 gallons of propane per day if I used this shower for a full hour at full capacity, and allowed for other incidental hot...

    I hope there are some techies following this forum who may be able to help me do some basic calculations regarding anticipated propane usage.
