I have a 275 ft of Rehau 1Ē going to a 80 plate heat exchanger. What speed should my Grundfos 26-99 run? I guess I need to measure return temps??

General Discussion / Fan issue
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:10:06 PM »
I have my old 325G back up and running. I removed the old 5 wrap and put in 275 feet of Rehau. So far, it seems to have made a big difference.
Only problem since the start up was a threaded pipe leak which caused the blower to get wet and trip the circuit breaker. I replaced it with an old fan I had on hand. It worked fine over night and is now tripping the breaker again. No sign of moisture, but not sure fan didnít have problems before I installed it. Is there any the solonoid could cause this problem. Just want to be sure before I go buy a new fan tomorrow.
Is anyone else burning a conventional own?

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / what happened???
« on: March 14, 2018, 09:04:32 PM »
What the hell happened to this site...it has no traffic, only a few experts and mostly Heatmaster discussions.
It used to be fun to read every day.

Advanced Electronics / what type of wire
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:05:40 AM »
I'm interested in burying some type of cable for monitoring purposes. Haven't decided what I'll use to monitor, but OWB is about 250ft from house. CAT 5 or 6? thanks.

An interesting overview of basement insulation...the physics applies elsewhere. Felt like 30 minutes well spent.

I had always wondered what exactly to do if I needed to leave the stove unattended while away during the heating season. Well, for the past four days I have been away in Florida (70's, by the way!) and I hadn't gathered enough small wood for my wife to load, so I thought I'd see if I could maintain the temps above freezing without having a fire while someone was home to monitor.
 
My indoor system is an oil fired boiler that I connect to my owb via a 80 plate heat exchanger. I closed the valves at the exchanger so heat was not exchanged and turned on the money-burning oil furnace.  The stove temperature bottomed out at 50F after 5 days of no heat with near 5F temps in the evening and 20's during the day. I now feel liberated knowing I don't need to have the stove babysat if I want to go out of town in the winter.

After seeing how much oil I used during those 5 days, I'm thankful to have the owb.

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / boil-over
« on: December 28, 2012, 09:11:03 AM »
Had my NC 325G overheat last night.  Lost about 20 gallons and can't seem to find where the air is entering the firebox.  We re-tighten the door.  Any other ideas?

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / age
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:55:58 PM »
Curious as to the average age of OWB owners.  I'm 51 and starting to think about how long I'll be able to feed the machine! 70 yrs old?
