This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Rocket.

This BB requires you to build a j-tube unpressurized rocket hot water heater.


This is a video of what the rocket hot water heater should look and operate like.

rocket water heater and shower

These are some potentially useful resources:
  - Rocket Hot Water Heater the SAFE Way
  - Rocket Mass Heater Hot Water
  - Rocket Stove Hot Water for Hot Tub
  - Rocket Stove Heat Water

To get certified for this Badge Bit you must provide:
  - 5 pics of build in progress
  - pic of vertical exhaust going into the ceiling
  - pic of vertical exhaust coming out of the roof
  - 15 second long video of cold water going in and steaming hot water coming out
  - 2 minute video of starting the fire and proving there are no smoke leaks
Are we home yet? Wait, did we forget the tiny ad?
