gallon boiler a 1000 watt element may be necessary to compensate for
heat loss at the boiler? I realize there are a bunch of variables in
this game but I want to make sure i am understanding the basics as I
make the Hobby more technical.
To add to this, what would be a good insulation to use for the boiler?
I know a couple of beach towels and some duct tape would help but
there has to be a "Good and Reasonable" solution.
