wood-burning range water heaters

All you needed is one of us old folks. The two side tappings go to the water jacket on the range. One top tapping for cold would have a dip tube. The other top tapping should have a bushing,tee long stem PRESSURE&TEMP RELIEF VALVE piped to drain. Those tanks used to make all sorts of strange noises when they got too hot.Anymore questions. e-mail me


  • Wood-burning Range Water Heaters

    Any real, real, real old timers out there? We're building a Bed & Breakfast at 10,000 feet in St. Elmo, Colorado (Ghost Town Guest House). Ambience item #1 in the dining room is a 1906 Monarch Range (wood/coal, w/water jacket around the fire box) in great condition. In the back, high and low, are two 1" mipt nipples. Behind the range stands a 6'-high hot water tank with five taps as follows: two 1" fipt on top (one of these has a proprietary male-union/90-degree brass elbow screwed into it); Two 1" fipt on the side, (one high and one low); and one 1.25" fipt on the branch of a proprietary tee/union coming out of the bottom of the tank. (This tee has one blind run which attaches to a base plate (via an 1.25" nipple) that sits on the floor. My cold water supply comes down from the ceiling. Waddyathink? How does it pipe?

    Have you tried a range restorer?




    I have an '03 Glenwood, but without the water jacket. My grandparents had a tank behind the stove, but they passed on, so I can't check theirs.

    Thanks for the memories, today.
