Thank you for mentioning the pressure gauge and so on. I guess a hot water tank has it. Robably beyond my capabilities just yet. No war on don't want to blow anyone up.

I really appreciate the posts about plumbing/ loops. I guess as with everything at first what seems complicated becomes simple if studied enough. Lots of posts on the topic over the years, that's for sure.
First year in my life I look forward to winter. I hope to be basting a turkey by thanks giving to practice for Christmas. In one of those ovens I think as not so many around here and better take one.

Might as well add the last photo. The stoves are such extreme opposites in style. Lean towards blue and white for water reservoir and style I guess. The black one is very handsome and looks very well cared for but I'd be a little challenged by the water holes. If I could do it it would be great, but.

Of course, they may both be sold if I don't make up my mind.

I think you should get professional help, if you're gunna plumb up a hot water system Jen. It'll be worth it in the end. I like the idea tho. Good luck finding a worthy candidate.
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

That's the problem with Canada. I thought finding anthracite in B.C might loosen things up. But we just go by American safety standards.

But a friend's father was in marine construction and was in the navy. He says piece of cake. Lol! Prefer a reservoir perhaps.

I meant, if we use coal in Canada we look up codes and so on for the States but I'm sure there are people who don't. But we have regulations for wood stoves and at least once a year someone tells me that they are dangerous because: they were just watching the fire through the open door and the stove became red hot.
Eventually I would like to have hot water but I have only just started burning and still don't really burn efficiently yet. Should improve a lot this winter.
I know the ranges are more complicated but want to try anyway.
It is as hot outside today as my son's bedroom after the coal went in.

Summer is here and a third child has just gone out to Vancouver to live, so I am collecting coal children.
