The problem with doing it, unless you provide a means to circulate the water, is that when no water is being used, the temperature of the water in the coil, or whatever, is not being regulated and can get to a dangerous level. If you are fgoing to do it, you need to provide a circulator pump or a convection circulation system to keep the water moving. It will still be unregulated, but hopefully you would use enough water to keep the temperature at a safe level.

: does anyone have drawings or idea`s on running cold water
: thru a coil behind/above wood burning fire place
: insert and then to gas fired water tank input. The concept
: is to pre heat the water to cut gas costs. Any ideas??
