Thanks all for weighing in. Good tips about draining the crud out of the bottom of the tank and

It occurred to me a few years back that taking cold tap water to 170ish degrees takes a lot
more time and uses a lot more propane than taking hot water from the tap at roughly 125 degrees
to 170. So s...

I used to love Widmer's Snowplow. So much so that I contacted them and ask them to start making

This has all been very helpful. Sounds like there are two pretty big changes here - the first

pot), so I'll ...
Posted in thread: Low Efficiency - Troubleshooting w/ No Luck on 08-20-2012 at 02:44 AM
Thanks for the feedback. Still a little confused. I ran off just about 5 gallons exactly -
