    One poster asked a plumber buddy about double wall heat exchangers--Only install one when required by code--and only then.

    The bigger issue is the Wood Stove water heater... Some folks here can probably give you some good ideas/sources--Wood Stove's with heater jackets can be real dangerous (steam explosions) if not done correctly.

    PS: Also heat exchangers can make the stove/fire/stack run cool too (soot forming, poor draft, etc.).

    Put the tank higher than the stove and let it thermosiphon.
