This podcast explores the idea of getting hot water out of a rocket mass heater setup, and the dangers that come with that design (explosion). Paul, Caleb, and Krista discuss pressure release valves, and Jean Pain's compost heated water system. Paul talks about his video on Brian Kerkvliet's compost pile shower. Solar hot water, and the risk of legionella bacteria comes up, and Paul discusses CFLs and how he lowered his power bill.
