Hmm . . . another aspect that would be intriguing for me. We have a pool, but swimming can be limited in the Spring/Fall or even in the Summer after a few days of weather like we had last week and the temps just aren't quite warm enough to go swimming. If I could get a boiler plumbed for heat in the winter and possibly to heat up the pool just a tad in the shoulder swimming months. . . . intriguing . . . very intriguing.

I assume there must be a way to plumb such a system so that in the winter the wood fired boiler could heat the house and excess heat would dump into the aforementioned garage or a storage container in the crawl space and not dump into the pool . . . and then in the fall/spring the excess heat could be dumped into the pool rather than the garage/crawl space????
