Default Plate wort chiller to heat water in pot with running hot water

Hello guys.

I have this wort chiller: http://morebeer.com/view_product/624...ller_-_Shirron

I'm using biab and it's taking me about 30 minutes to get to mesh temperature. As I have a wort chiller and a pump I was wondering to circulate the water in the pot (while heating) through the wort chiller (and the pump) with hot water running in the other direction from the garden hose. Would this harm the machine or should it work?

Johann

as long as the hot water source you are using is hotter than the water you are trying to heat it should work just fine. I'm assuming you aren't just filling your HLT with hot water as you are worried about minerals from your water heater. Personally I have a tank-less water heater and plan on using hot water straight from it to start off my brew day.
