idea for old HTP Voyager

hot_rod Member Posts: 22,263
I was about ready to scrap out this leaker. Then I thought about turning it into a forced air heater. Tanks warms and an old Tjerlund power venter blows air through to former combustion chamber.

I need a small heater for my well house, I'll add solar for the tank, via the coil, DHW in the tank and a stat to maintain the well house at 45F with the fan.

If I can find and fix the leak.

    Was this a tank leak?

    Turn it on its side and float it down James River.
