I have to admit that I haven’t built my own wood fired pool heater. I bought mine from ExtendaSwim. But I can control heat source by controlling the airflow in the burning chamber. I can open and close the air valve in the bottom of the heater and thereby control how fast the wood is burning. If I want to put out the fire I just close the valves all together.

The smoke problem is a combination of two things: How dry the wood is and the airflow in the burning chamber. If it was a homemade wood fired pool heater there might be a problem with the airflow. If there not enough air in the chamber the burning is incomplete and will generate a lot of smoke. The same thing will happen if the wood isn’t dry enough.
I have made a blog about my experience with my wood fired pool heater at bestwoodpoolheaters.com

Using charcoal on the top with wood on the bottom.

Convert a fire pit or old grill into a wood burning pool heater (water heater).

I bought a 16' x 4' pool, but found that a gas or electric heater would cost more than the price of the pool itself. I also had a lot of limbs and split wood from a fallen tree in my yard. This made for a very easy and effective combination. Now, when I burn wood in my fire pit, I also heat my pool.

Hi,

Wood burning stoves started out as a way to heat a home more effectively than with open fireplaces, which had traditionally been used. The first models were placed against the opening of the fireplace so that the fumes could escape through the chimney. They were essentially a metal box, but they heated a room more thoroughly than a traditional fireplace because they reached further into the room.

hey guys,

I hear alot about not using copper pipe in chloronated water and rather to use 316 stainless steel, it's just the price difference between copper and that grade steel is vast...

so is there anyone that tried copper in chloronated water?
And is their any other alternative tubing to copper and steel.

Another design i was thinking about was maybe using a barrol, fill the barrel with water, heat the barrol to get water to near boiling, have coiled polypipe in the barrol where the pool water will run through, what you guys think?

I would not be so concerned about copper being stripped into the pool any more, than with a regular gas heater.
In your design you will hardly deal with the temperatures and force in the tubing as high, as it is common in a regular Laars heater.
It is always recommended to maintain some level of pool magnet sequestrant to suspend possible copper or any other metals in your water.
Copper has many advantages against a stainless. Easier to work with, splice, heat pick-up from sun if outside, and corrosion stops after surface coats with oxide.
Remember, there is no stainless that does not corrode (except the most expensive kind) in warm chlorinated water. So you will be putting iron in a pool water anyway.

Hi...,

Pool heating through wood is the best way of heating. I bought a 16' x 4' pool, but found that a gas or electric heater would cost more than the price of the pool itself. So i have choosen wood for pool heating. Cold pool water is pumped from the pool via the submersible pump into a 50 foot coil of copper pipe mounted above the fire inside the pit or grill. By the time the water makes it out of the pipe, the fire has heated the water. This is similar to how a standard hot water heater works. The heated water exits the pipe back into the pool.
