    Basically what I am trying to do on the cheep is heat water for my orchids in winter.
    They are all in a greenhouse set at a minimum of 17C.
    ...need about 150 to 300 Lt per watering day.
    A stock tank with a stock tank heater. If you can find a used stock tank the whole setup should be under a $100.
    The stock tank will provide extra humidity to the green house if you leave it uncovered. I'd wrap the tank in insulation to keep the heat in the tank. Set it up on top of rigid Styrofoam type insulation as well.

    We use the floating stock tank's 1/2 way down the page.
    Many thanks will look at them
