Check your insurance agent; especially what anti freeze you use; and the types of pipes from the burner, seems to me there has to be 5 feet of metal pipe so a fire does not travel down the line.
All it took was one house burning down for them to cover their buttocks.
Wiring should be so you flip and switch and plug in a generator to run the pump.
Sale of property is a night mare with a outdoor stove especially with what anti freeze you use, so keep some records of purchases of the anti freeze.
You have to prove what went in comes out , it is all about ground water contamination of a leak.

Safest way is with antifreeze in lines. I have not gone that way yet.
One big freeze up and antifreeze would pay for itself easy.

I do this also stomper. If I get a running start and jam the stove full of good oak it will hold a fire for 48 hours if the indoor
Thermostat is set to 50 and the outside temp stays above zero.

The anti-freeze is also excellent corrosion prevention too.

Propylene glycol is the antifreeze used in boilers as long as it doesn’t have a aluminum heat exchanger . Aluminum requires a special antifreeze and additive. Another thing is you must test the strength of your boiler waters antifreeze ever year it weakens over time and must be added to. If not checking the antifreeze strength you will wish you had.

While your at it you might as well eat up all those Ontario walleye in the freezer , just wrap the packages back up with a block of same size ice cube after consumption.....with the real FREEZER BURN STRIKES on the label.

I never knew people ran outside boilers without antifreeze??? Not only does it keep pipes from freezing but it inhibits rust and lubricates the pump.

I had an outdoor wood boiler for over 30 years. I never ran anti-freeze in it or anti-rust chemicals. My stove was stainless steel, so rust wasn't a problem. We did have a forced air furnace as back up in the house that was fueled by propane. If we left for a longer period of time, we turned the furnace on. With the wood boiler's pump circulating the water, we never had a problem with freezing while we were gone.


If you think it's OK for Iran to have nukes, but not OK for law abiding Americans to have guns, you might be an idiot.

Check your insurance for extended periods when you are not home....most clauses require a 48 or 72 hour check......and the outdoor stove is high on that list.

black and tan just don't post any pictures of What's for Dinner, cause Zim knows where I live, those Surveyors can find a lot of things...sometimes
