DIY: How to Make Endless Hot Water Without Electricity [Video]

Hot Water Without Electricity

This is a very nice and inexpensive way to have hot water in a grid down situation. No electricity required and very easy to build. Using a thermal siphon pumping a rocket stove  and a reservoir. This technique uses a copper coil  to heat the water, so I will post the second DIY video about bending copper tubing without kinking it as well.
Anyway, this is a very useful way to have hot water in a grid down situation (and not only) but, an alternative and more reliable way to get hot water without electricity is using a Bio-gas Generator . Bio-gas is a gas composed of anaerobic micro-organisms through the process of anaerobic digestion. That means you can get any kind of organic waste, put it in a bio-gas digester  and turn it into bio-gas, that includes  even dead leaves, grass, human and animal waste and so on. Read more about this here

The obtained gas can be used to so many things like;

  • Fueling a heating water system
  • Power up an electricity generator
  • Heating your home
  • Fueling a cooking stove in your kitchen
  • And can be even transformed to fuel for your car
  • Power up an Aquaponic system for an 100% self sustained and organic way to grow your veggies.

Now, lets get back to our initial project. The first video show how this work and how you need to set it up, and the next video is about  bending the copper tubing, a very useful trick for many projects as well. Enjoy and please spreed this awesome techniques.

  1. Does anyone know what happened to Dime Piece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I seem to be unable to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Marie Claire that they were acquired by a UK-based hedge fund for $50m. I’ve just bought the Dimepiece I’m Trying Unisex Heavy Blend™ Hooded Sweatshirt from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

  3. Maybe you are using the sacrificial anode connection to connect the copper pipe will be possible using a diameter larger copper tube?

  4. Blessings for sharing this info!

    You mentioned getting a used water heater. What should I look out for when getting a used one, mainly parts missing/replaceable, and gallon size? I can look up recommended size for family of 4…What’s the height of your stove piping? When filling up the water tank with cold water, how full can you fill yours?

    I’m also a very visual learner. Do you have a sketch of what the stove piping looks like in inside with the coil? It looks like you have at 2-3 parts there. Are all those parts stove piping? Thank you for advise, single mama fearlessly going into those hardware and recycling stores! For a non-engineer-new prepper, any help would be appreciated!

    1. For water heater, you can use anything you can find. the bigger it is the better. of course make sure he doesn’t have any leaks. You can fill it up to 90%. This can be adapted to your needs and parts you have. All those parts are stove pipes and you make the coil to fit in the one you have. This is very simple and once you get started you can improve it for your needs.
