    I am building a tank in tank. I am pulling water from directly above the firebox. I am returning it on the side about half way up the tank at the back. I am adding an elbow to the inside of my return that will direct the return water to the back bottom corner.

    I was wondering about adding a pipe inside the tank that would run next to the firebox and go from one end of the tank to the other. My thinking being that the water heating up in that pipe would then push out the ends and help circulation.

    Ideas?

    I'd run either the supply or return all the way through to the other side to force complete circulation if possible.

    I had heard that some brands used a perforated tube that ran across the bottom for the return and I thought about doing that as well.
