Suplemental hot water heater
I have a Slant fin hydroponic heating system that currently supplies our hot water. It is not very efficient in supplying a continuous supply of hot water. I believe it is considered a tank less system as it holds no more than 2-3 gallons of water plus what is in the lines. I was thinking of adding a Marathon 50 gallon 240 Volt electric hot water heater (foam insulated with resin tank). My Question is, do i isolate this from my current hot water supply? OR can i leave it in line and help reduce fuel costs??
