Wood burning pool heater

I have heard of good results with a wood burning pool heater but have also been told that I would need to add wood or fuel every hour or two. This is totally impractical for me.

Is there any automatic feeder or hopper system I could look at (or a design) that I could use to automate the feeding and burning of a wood burning pool heater I am planning?

Look for a hopper feed pellet stove. You can buy the pellets in skids and just toss a bag or 2 into the hopper.

I built my own wood pool heater.
It works great, and is easy to use.
I only have to add wood to it twice in
24hour period.

It was built with $250 worth of material
and 8 hours of time.

I can send photos. This is our second year with it.
I raised our pool from 75 deg F to 85 deg F in 2 days.
Our pool is 30,000 gallons.
my email is [email protected].
