What heats the water? DO you have an outdoor burner like kickstart is getting?

thought about a big buddy? also google blue flame heater. they work well. can burn propane, nat gas, also can give 5000 btu on electric.
works without electricity when on gas, perfect in a power outage. can be moved into the house in an emergency. vent free and safe for indoor use.
if your insulated it should work.
