Inlet and outlet temps stay around the temp of the water in the water heater. The whole system holds less than 4 gallons I'm guessing.

The pump is a three speed circulator pump set on the lowest setting. I'm guessing I could have put in more pipe in the firebox or need a smaller/slower pump. Some set ups use convection and I wanted that way but it just wouldn't work in this set-up.

Overall I am very happy with the results and it has more than paid for itself already.

Right now I have 3 extra people and 2 kids staying here and it doesn't keep up with the demand put on with the showers and dishwasher. But it is preheating the water going into the electric 40 gallon water heater to 90F to I need to get rid of the extra people. lol
