Do you want to know how to get endless amounts of hot water without using any electricity? Knowing how to create hot water quickly and without electricity is very important for disaster survival. Hot water can be used for taking a shower, cleaning dishes, boiling food, and many other things.
Most preppers understand the value of being able to create hot water, but they usually rely on solar power methods to do so. While solar does work for creating hot water, you’re also entirely dependent on how much sunlight you get.

For this project, you will need:
- A rocket stove with a chimney
- Plenty of wood to fuel a fire
- A large container to hold your water (an old water heater would work for this purpose)
- Water pipes and valves
- Some copper coil
What you need to do is connect the bottom of your water container (which should be filled up with water) to your stove with the pipes and valves.
The pipes will need to run into your stove and connect to your copper coil, which will run through your stove before exiting out to provide you with flowing hot water. You can control the flow of the water with your valves.
With this set up, operation is simple. Just fill up your container with cold water, get a fire going in your stove until the temperature rises to around 500 degrees F. Then, permit the flow of water by twisting the valves.
The water will then travel down your pipes and enter into the copper coil in your stove to become heated, before exiting out for you to pour into another container.
It’s worth noting that if you are going to use any of this hot water for food preparation or cleaning purposes, it’s important to purify it before using it.
