Maximum SAFE temperature for domestic hot water tank
The problem with having hot water heated by a wood burner is that a GOOD fire raises the hot water temperature pretty quickly. In cold weather, I'd like to have a good fire all night (radiators don't do too much) but my OH says that over 65 degrees is 'dangerous' (fo the tank - rather than us. I have NO idea why he thinks this except that we have a 'dump' radiator to take water over that temperature which is currently disconnected (because he's rewiring everything in bits and pieces while putting in a new control unit.) What WOULD be a dangerous temperature from the tanks point of view.
