Ok, I understand that electric heat is only so-so, and many have said that propane is the way to go.

But, I thought that I also read that high heat (140 degrees?) can shorten life pump life.

So I guess I'm trying to understand how this set up looks.

The PSI pump pushes it out to the propane heater, heats the water and then to the wand?

OR

The water is pushed from the propane heater (how) to the machine, into the tank, and out to the wand?

Thanks in advance.

I prefer fresh water tank, to filter, to pump, to Lil' Giant heater, to regulator(bypass back to tank,)To wand filter, to wand.

Waste water back to 165 gal tank.

High heat never goes through the pump.

All electric!!

Right the first time. Pumped from machine, through heater, out to wand.
