*We are currently working on water temperature controllers, for the fan forced spa pool heaters & pool heaters, which cut the fire right back to a glow, when in a spa pool has reaches your desired temperature it works by cutting the oil flow to a pulse. When the pool temp drops it starts up again heating. So now the oil flow can be managed via a small pump and controller.
This will save the spa pool owners approximately $50.00 in power a week, and beable to heat your spar pool for next to nothing, enabling you to actually use your spa pool once again.
So clean the leaves out of your spa pool, get rid of the green water, and get ready for this exciting new product to arrive here soon.
Watch this space for updates and video's.

Safety with waste oil heating is a must, and now we offer this to all our customers past and present.
The process of the waste oil heater.
After the heater has been sandblasted, we set it up ready to test.
Test flues are attached, oil lines fitted, storage tank filled, and connected, fan connected, and plugged in..
Then we light it up as in the video below.
Testing begins. We test that the heater gets up to 250c and the smoke level remains at nil throughout this temperature range.
We test every fifth heater we make. Last tested 26 August
We then email the video to the customer to show them their heater in action.
Filtering of the waste oil, the minimum requirement.
This sieve was cleaned before I poured in 40 litres of waste oil, look at the rubbish it collected. A very cheap basic filtering system that works amazingly well, and this is our only filtering we do, before the oil is burnt, apart from removing the water from the oil.
Make sure you filter your oil before you burn it, as this stuff will block most taps and needle valves, up all day long.
The 19KG gas cylinder heater, running from a 4 watt computer fan, reaching 900F.
Clean, No smoke, and little ash build up, therefore easy cleaning.
Ash content in the pot after 6 hours burning at around 350C equaled 1 cup full..

These heaters only put out a heatwave, out the exhaust.
These fan forced heaters we build, I have checked that these are absolutely smokeless from all angles and that includes above, when in operation, and am quite over the top about making sure they are, before leaving here. There is nothing worse than a waste oil heater smoking all day long.
The only difference between a smoking waste oil heater, and a clean burning waste oil heater is the airflow.
I do think we are the only people that make use of the heat that these heaters produce, to heat homes, and water.

The heater above, in the video, this guy Clive Severinsen from Dannevirke on Trademe brought, and is now saying it's a lemon.
Basically he is wanting his money back after 7 months, that's what this is about.
It's odd because we heard nothing from him for 6 months then everything went wrong in his book.
32 pages of emails to and fro, of what's gone wrong. However never tried to changed anything we suggested which I found odd..
If something needs attention it's normally within the first week.
This idiot, and there's always one, has no idea how to control it, has blown two radiators, by heating them passed the manufactures recommended heating 110c rating.
He's been running it without the fan running, hence burnt out the alumium fan inside.
It sit outside without protection from the weather.
These have 240volts running the fan.
We have offered to repair it, should he return it, but he doesn't want to do that, so harassment is his way of dealing with it.
His Auction on trademe.
This is not extremely clean burning, fan forced waste oil heater. It burns waste engine oil so cleanly there is nothing, except a bit of smoke and a little bit of smell what else do you except from a lemon This is a fan forced waste oil heater, we are testing for it's heats output & smoke levels. it will run for about 3 to 5 hours before it will stop then you have to clean it out what else do you except from a lemon
If you got all day to monitor this heater to keep running by turning it up, cleaning the bowl, then this is just for you what else do you except from a lemon
If you don’t want it to running when it is windy or when it is raining and if you don’t mind getting wet when you have to relight it after a poor down of rain, then this is just for you what else do you except from a lemon
If you want a heater with not much technical support that is fine because I did not either, then this is just for you what else do you except from a lemon
Comes complete ready to light and smokes a bit , with 2 x lengths galv flue 1200 x 150mm.
1 x cowling/ rain cover for the flue that does not work
Brass Needle valve, and tube fittings to connect to a 20 litre container that is not the right size (to small ) you will have to buy your own that’s what I had to
Lights up quickly and reaches 500-600F within 5 minutes with no emissions at all, as you can see in this video.
Temperature over 800 Fahrenheit 400 C in places like where the old paint is flaking off.
Very happy with this unit although, I did have a bit of smoke when I turned it off, not over the top amount, will be firing it up again today to check it out.
It shut down very quickly and only smoked a little for a couple of minutes and white smoke only.
We had it going for the last 5 hours running 550F no smoke at all.
It's burning 2 litres an hour but that's neither here nor there, as we can't burn enough oil to keep up with the flow coming in.
So at 2 litres an hour, the 20 litre plastic container at this rate will last 10 hours burning.
At 2 litres an hour I have been heating the radiator in our lounge at 65-75 degrees c for the last 10 hours
all for free, except the price of operating the 85 watt fan= $0.07 for two hours.
The top level of our home is 23-24 degrees C.
In the ten hours running I went downstairs once to turn it up quarter of a turn on the needle valve.
We have fitted two lengths of flue on it, and it is going beautifully.
I started it with a couple of pieces of firewood for a change, they didn't last long even the ash disappeared.
There is nothing left in the burning pot at all.
With the wood it got to 800F but you would need a forest to feed it, as they burn that quick.
The heat output, i could feel the heat easy 3 metres away, and that was on a very cold day.
This fan forced heater comes complete

We now have the boiler unit built, and running extremely successfully, giving us ample free hotwater.
Now we need to look at using that hotwater to heat our homes, and radiators are the perfect way, to do this, although an old way but very effective way of heating houses.
With your boiler/waste oil heater setup in a fireproof area, outside the home, with only the hotwater entering the house.
It can now heat your home successfully.
Radiator heating is widely accepted as the most comfortable form of heating. Naturally silent it delivers consistent warmth, and as it doesn't rely on forced air, it provides a gentle ambient form of heat for the whole house. They come in all shapes and sizes to meet not only your needs, and your taste. Bringing back the old style radiator into your home, will look amazing. These operate around the 65-80 degree C, with most radiators having a heating rating of 110 degrees C.
Radiators provide radiant heating. That means a solid object (in this case, the radiator fins) are heated instead of the air itself – creating gentle, ambient warmth that evenly heats the room.
Central heating radiator design have come a long way since the institutional school heaters of old; today’s models come in a range of styles and sizes to suit all kinds of interiors. They can be linked to a variety of boiler or waste oil heaters, water heating systems.
Radiator heating is an excellent option for existing homes because they can be easily retrofitted to your existing heating system.
Not to forget with our heaters, all your heating needs will be free for years to come.

Here we are replacing the expensive diesel heater with a drip fed waste oil burner unit. On its way to Nelson. Only complaint it now produces too much hot water, nice problem to have.
Paul, brought his plans a couple of weeks ago, from this website, and I am delighted to show you his finished heater, he has built in only a few days.
It's running at 350 F and sitting in pride of place in his home in Aussie, really nice job Paul.
We have heaters scattered all around the world, great to see.
Thanks for your feedback excellent job.
Comes with everything, one length of 150 mm x 1200 mm Galv flue & cowling,
Excellent for a large shed, Garage or sitting in the corner of the workshop. The heat can be felt 3 metres away, so that's a 6 metre diameter, Ideally run, between 350 and 500 Degrees F.
Email from Nigel.
Winter is coming though so I got back into it, made a frame for the water cylinder and plumbed it into the floor heating cylinder. Got it fired up today and the water is thermosiphing through the system, no need for a pump which is great.
Still work to do, lag the pipes, make some heatshields,tidy it all up yahdeeyaydeeya.
And then see if it keeps us warm over winter.
The feedback from a customer, who purchased the plans, and built his own furnace.
Randy from Michigan USA, brought the plans only a few days ago, and now look what he has created from them.
Hi Randy, It looks hot. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Got to say you'll be needing it with all that snow on the ground.
What do you think the savings in the heating bill, for your shop, and house,
not forgetting he could make more that just one unit saving even more.
This is his email reply, interesting.
My house and my pole barn (shop) are each about 120 square meters (1300 square feet). For this winter season, I paid about $2450 US for 1300 gallons (4921 liters) of propane to heat both. So to heat two buildings totaling about 240 square meters, I am at roughly $2500US for one winter. If I set up your design to use for heating the house at least during the time I am home (when I can keep watch on it), I could easily save a third of that.($833.00US) Not bad for free heat. We have about 500US gallons of engine waste oil at our business right now - that should last a while.
So for the outlay of only $21.00USD for the plans and a little more for the building of the heater, he's going to be saving $833.00US a year that is a huge saving. If you look at the savings in NZD then it converts to $1124.54.
The verdict, those plans at $17.51USD are cheap.
I also sent Randy an email regarding the the oil feed line and how the smoke levels would change, once it is fitted to the heater. I also mentioned the great job he had done.
No need for me to take credit where credit is not due. It's your design, your testing, your hard work. All I did was follow a recipe and make a couple small changes just like any good cook will do.
I am getting ready to go 1200 miles away for a 6 week indoor project at a distribution facility so I am probably not going to have much time before I leave to do any further finalisation on this oil burner. The fact that it works and burns well is good enough for me. I have some ideas I want to try and by this time next year, I expect I will probably have made several with different modifications for different purposes (heating our pool, setting one up for a sauna, making one for my business partners garage). I am excited to install the drip line. It is ready and hanging in my shop but I am pressed for time so there it will sit for now.
As for the smoke, the video did show a little smoke but it was really a very small amount. I am confident that when I get the drip set up, I can reduce it even further but if not, the amount of smoke produced was what I would consider very minor for used engine oil.
Enjoy your summer. This morning it was -2F here and the high was +15F during the day. Kind of a "brisk" morning to be sure.
Report from another customer that picked up his new heater.
Just a quick note. Finally picked up the heater the other day. Was away with work which was a pain.
I am very impressed. It is well made and thought out. Instructions are great. Its taken the guesswork out of everything.
Good luck going forward.
Run your car on veggie oil straight from you restaurant in diesel cars only.
We love to save you money!!!

James, Nice brand New hot tub heater, on it's way to Christchurch. Check out that finish.
These heaters are designed to thermosyphon, to give maximum hotwater output. 2 x 20mm wetbacks installed inside this unit.
To the right, looking down inside the heater at the two wetbacks which exit out he second burning tube. These are right in the fire path.
Two more drip fed pool and spa heaters on there way to their new owners.
Thankyou to everyone who has purchased heaters and plans, this little invention/hobby has taking flight.
An email from our customers:
Hopefully I get make one of these, I'm a bit tied up with a few things at
the moment though, and I can be a bit of a " gunna " lol )
I decided to buy your plans purely because it appears to me that you've done your homework, and that its a tried and proven design.
and I'm sure you wouldn't be selling if they weren't,....
I particularly like the fact that that there is very minimal smoke etc. that is a must these days..
I have one question please, I was hoping to make a slightly more compact
version, not so high overall about 300mm - 400mm shorter in height
Is this possible by shortening the legs slightly, and also the burn tube etc. without effecting its efficciency much....?
Thanks Drip Fed.
To run this hot tub in winter on electricity would be $70-$100 a week! No chance. I got the tub for free from a bloke who couldn't afford to run it anymore. I'm really thinking about if I extend my house one day I'll get another one for a house radiator, it's so good.

If solar hotwater is the thing your interested in, then we have also fitted a solar system on the roof, and if you want some information from someone that isn't out to sell it to you,, then check our solar website out. Pro's and cons on it. It shows how to build your own retro fitting to fit your existing hotwater cylinder and how solar controllers operate.
Like all solar units, when the sun don't shine don't waste time, buy a waste oil heater.
The Team at Drip fed waste oil has constructed another waste oil heater for you to view, soon after construction in testing mode. It reached 550 degrees F for one hour and ran at normal temp of 300 degrees F, turned it off after 9 hours. It went through approximately 8 litres of waste oil in that time. It a very safe and reliable heater, stays at the set temp and didn't alter at all. I did leave it for an hour while I went into town. The units smoke level is very little, and I think is acceptable and will improve with more than 1 length of flue on it and time.
An excellent heater, available to purchase through this website, and at the moment through www.trademe.co.nz.
The plans for this heater is now available through the Purchase your heater and Plans tab at the top of this page.
To My Overseas Customers Thankyou so much for checking us out.
I see a lot of people from around the world looking at this website, and I can see why, winter is approaching somewhere in the world, heating becomes a major money concern.
Firewood is a huge price nowadays to keep the family home warm and can be a lot of hard work in getting the stuff.
A twenty litre plastic container of waste oil will heat my home for two nights.
I have priced, to send a waste oil heaters over to USA, the freight price is for one unit is $800.00 NZ, just not worth it. So get out in that shed of yours today, and start making one for yourself. Stick some copper pipe in it and your've got free hotwater too. Purchase the plans first so you get it right from the start.
I'm prepared to help you make your own, and help throughout the build.
All that is required to build this heater, is a welder, an angle grinder and a drill and steel
It is all set out in the plans, each step with images to show you what yours should look like. I have had people copy it from the picture then ask me a couple of weeks later, why theirs smokes like a --------- and mine doesn't, well there are a few secrets.
Buy it once and get it right from the start. Don't try coping it from the images and ending in a smoking out your neighbourhood on a still day. It happened to me a couple of times a few years ago now when, I began building these, how embarrassing, It's not funny when this happens at all. Thank god those days are over for good.
