Question of the week... How many gallons of hot water does the average family of four use each day?

Have you considered what you might do for hot water when SHTF?  How about saving some money on utilities by doing some of these things now?  We have talked about lots of things on this show and even touched on this topic here previously, see an expanded post on the blog. So let's give it a real look shall we?

There are multiple ways to get hot water that do not require a person to utilized the utilities. Some of them are basic, like on top of the woodstove or over an open flame.  Using your generator to power a heat source or even propane.  But generator fuel runs out and so does propane.  Over a flame limits the amount of water you can heat so now what?

Lets look at two other ways to get hot water.

  1. Solar Hot Water
    • Passive - Utilizes no pump
    • Active - Utilizes a pump
  2. Woodstove conversion
    • Copper coil (either passive or active)

An example of a passive solar hot water system can be found in my book.
