DIY Steampunk Woodfired Rocket Stove Hot Tub



An innovation on my original idea that was cool but way too far out there. This is the refined, more reasonable approach to the problem. The benefits of the featured design:
-Less particulate pollution
-More efficient
-Less likelihood for quick fluctuations in water temperature
-Water can still be heated long after the fire goes out
-Self pumping (In theory the laws of convection should force the water to pump but that is yet to be seen)
-Simple Materials
-Could be fired with alternative fuels such as
a) Coal
b) Garbage
c) Small newspaper logs
d) Alcohol
e) Propane

Disadvantages:
-Large
-Very Heavy
-Difficult to dismantle
-Harder to clean out
-No way to quickly stop it
