Using an Outdoor Wood Burning Furnace
to heat your swimming pool
or hot tub
You can use an outdoor wood burning furnace to heat your swimming pool or hot tub.
The Shaver Outdoor Wood Furnace has a second set of ports, standard. You can either use the pump you are using for your home heating system to heat your pool, when you are not heating your home.
The easiest way to do this is to put a Y connector at the pump so that you can switch it to send water to the home the winter and to the pool in the spring. The alternative is to mount the second pump on the provided second set of ports that comes free with the furnace.
An extra set of ports, if needed, can be added for only $45.
