Great stuff, Jeff !

Congratulations on the maxing scenarios - it sure looks like it is proving SOMETHING, even if we don't know WHAT
Can't wait to see the water heater application !

Best wishes to you,

Yea actually pumping water thru a manifold will answer some questions on their abilities for practical use.
Tonight I finished making 2 more short heat tubes. The test panel will have 4 heat tubes connected to the manifold. I stopped picked up the remaining copper fittings to make the manifold. I'm not sure I will get the panel done so I can test it this weekend though. I have a birthday party to attend saturday which will kill most of the day.
