hot water system - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    A copper coil incorporated in the oven running to your hot water tank inlet would work.

      It seems that if you were at all in a sunny climate, a solar collector would be a better and safer choice for point of use hot water.

      A coil in or near your oven could boil dry and melt

        the water would get to hot for your house. so you wood need a heat exchanger . and plenty pressure valve.s . because you could flash boil the water there.s a chance of a very big bang. so a good pump to move the water must be on even when fire is only starting. if you had room over top of oven maybe a heather tank to take expansion .. there are people who have put video.s on utube about this some very good jobs some not so good but still work ., i was thinking of using my wfo to heat a hillbilly hot-tub. also on utube. if you have any plumbing know how you could do it your self.. because you will not get a craftsman to do this , because of danger of explosion .. hope this is a bit of help .

          We had this discussion about a year ago I and can't find it. The problem is that the oven is so hot you will produce super-heated steam which is very dangerous. If you don't know how to handle the steam, it can be very dangerous.
