    I just don't see it shedding enough heat from the exhaust to be a huge advantage being the exhaust is still going to be extremely hot, but yes I guess it all helps lol. Guess I'm more about safety and approvals and shit when it comes to gas, call me paranoid but here it comes down to owning the liability when bad shit happens with co poisoning :(. And your right about using the heat produced and using it elsewhere, a condensing heater would be great to do that, using storage tanks to store and use that heat as needed is a great ideal, we do that all the time with tankless combo units for both heat and domestic water, just think of all the stuff you could keep warm like your grow room floor and bathroom towel rack, always wanted one of them lol.

    There would not have been any in-fighting if he had not insulted me for having an idea. I still don't think it was a bad idea, just go and check out the price of a standard co2 gen. Mine has arrived anyway so we will soon find out what the co levels will be....

    wih couple of pics of latest ladies without co2...

    hmmmmm...... a guy called budley doright wrote "Did my latest WC co2 with a 100 dollar ebay burner and a 60 dollar harbor freight pump. Been working like a champ for a year., 30 gallon rez no chiller." on another well known forum. Just a coincidence?

    Lets say this about portable water heaters.
    I looked at a NEXT GEN III.
    I bought a Chinese built portable water heater for 1/4 the cost. I changed the battery ignition system to the proper Volted DC converter and never looked back.
    BTW. The portable is the same fucking insides as the NG3, simply a different ignition system..

    I don't gas any more. Don't really see the need...Still have a second back up unit in the box....Same for a chiller....Be sure to cover or seal the cooling water tank.....

    I own one of those. really expensive to run the sump pump, very safe though with half a dozen redundant go/no go's.
    it hangs on the wall now, replaced with a pilot cap 4 burner 6 yrs ago. no complaints on either.
    I hosed the water to the other side of the wall(outside grow room, inside barn) to a barrel filled with antifreeze and capped. but...
    Controlling the little extra heat from the un cooled cap unit is cheaper for me than pumping water to cool the other.
    for sale

    Hey chem, I am going to use run to waste for now, my 220v solonoid valve has turned up today, I was thinking about the same sort of idea but instead of capping it maybe using a heat pump and hooking it up to a radiator in my workshop for the wintertime lol just not sure how hot it would get (if at all). I have been and got teh 10m of copper that i am going to use to run a new gas line from outside my kitchen into workshop, I am also going to run a fixed copped waterline at the same time. I am ready to get cracking on the piping, plaster boarding and insulating my room now. I have moved my tents indoors for now so i can get on with sorting out a proper room hehe! Cant wait to see the difference added co2 is going to make.

    is a great idea. my discharge got steaming hot for thought. I capped my drum to contain the humidity.
    you'll know exactly what benefit you may have by getting your meter first and studying it in the room without c02 augmentation.
    place it all over the place to check but the most important place is around the plant canopy. If your air exchange/circulation is able to keep that point between 300-400ppm while lights are on you are golden, no need for more c02. Idid and found less than ideal c02, if my gen died today I'd have another by the weekend. no way would I grow without one in my space.
    when I grew in my office in tents I needed no additional c02. I chose it over outside air exchange and love it.
    but if below 300 ppm your plants are starving. even starving kids can survive for long periods of time, doesnt mean they're as sharp as they could be right...
