*We are currently working on water temperature controllers, for the fan forced spa pool heaters & pool heaters, which cut the fire right down to a glow, when in a spa pool, 38c has been reached, by cutting the oil flow. 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.

After buying $200.00 dollars worth of fans and adapters, a mate came around last night with a more powerful fan. This morning I ran the heater for four hours and at burnt clean.
For some slight reason all the computer fans we normally use all smoked and it was getting a little fustrating I tell you. So have ordered ten more of these fans. Yes the heater is going at 294c at the time of this image was taken.

Well today didn't go as planed, I brought 10 computer fans of a guy on trademe, which was good, but when I used them, the fire smoked.
Went to Jaycar today and purchad $200.00 worth of fans, and power adapters, they all made the heater smoke too. OK can't be the fans then. Did I change the burner head, No. Lifted the pot up closer to the burning tube still smoked not as much, Progress.
Went and checked the last video of the last heater couldn't work it out until i pulled the pot out.
I'm using the pot for the bigger 45 kg heaters.
So off to Mitre10 in the morn, to fetch some smaller pots, this should fix the smoke problem, talk about a fustrating day.
Have had the home fire burning since 8am going well house warm.

After 3 days of strong winds , heavy downpours of rain, the waste oil heater has survived the challenge, however water has managed to get into my 44 gallon drum, which is annoying to say the least.
I filled a 20 litre container only to find the fire wouldn't go correctly for 1/2 the day. Spitting and sparking the old bacon cooking sound.
So all i did was tilt the 20 litre container back onto a piece of 4x2 lifing the outlet up, so any water falls to the back of the container, heater is better after doing that. Radiator is now 70c and doing it's job of heating the house.
So we don't need all these water catching filters afterall.
Hope this helps you.

Well after three trips to Gasworkz today, one new regulator we now have the Co2 connected to the mig.
The welder works really well, I changed today from a welder/grinder with the arc welder, to a mig welder, if your've still using a stick, it's time to splash out and get a mig welder. Remeber the Co2 bottle can cost more than your welder itself and I also brought a nice big red cylinder which lasts alot longers than a couple of weeks werlding as this fire extinguisher does.
Oh the bandsaw new blade and coolent working really well. It cleans up the workshop as your not grinding so much cutting steel.
Bandsaw is just great cuts anything no need for loud drop saws making a bloody mess.

I have had trouble with the oil feed line, blocking at the needle valve or airlocks, so took the tubing off, and replaced with 12mm polybutylene that I had lying about in the garage, reduced it back down to the needle valve and have found it has fixed that little problem. I think we may supply this pipe or 12mm tubing with these heaters.

I have just spent this morning checking the waste oil heater and the storage tank. Why? Just last night I notice the heat at the radiator drop to 42c quite quickly, when it had been going at around 55c most of the night, so I popped downstairs to the heater that's outside, only to find it had almost gone out, and a small pool of oil was starting to form inside the pot. That's not the normal operation of this heater, so turned it off and left it for this morning.
The oil flow had slowed enough to lower the flame to almost a lit match . However the oil still dripped out the copper tube which form that small oil pool.
I have been having trouble with the needle valve blocking just recently. So, was thinking I haven't change the 20 litre container I filter into for the last 6 years, yeah problem found, about 1/2 inch of fine sludge formed on the bottom of the 20 litre plastic container.
So grabbed another newer container, and washed it out using petrol, to make sure it's clean. Cleaned the oil lines with petrol and air compressor. So should be good for another 6 years or there abouts.
Iv'e now had it running since 2 o'clock and it's going like a new one, two and a quarter turns on the needle valve, now gives 62 Cat the radiator in the lounge, bring that freezing cold weather on.
