This is just for infor on little Giants 3HT HP gas usage.

with the goliath and it so called heat exchanger. I would get 18 hrs on 9.2 gal of gas. (40 lb tank.) at 220-230 deg water temp
now with the EZ 25/45 TM using the HX to pre heat the water going into the LG on a 9.2gal Propane Tank which is a 40 LB Tank

WHOPING 50 HR AT 8.5 GAL OF PROPANE. WHOA WHAT A DIFFERENT.

I was told it would not make that much of a different. well is is a real world test. and if I had not used it on the goliath for 1 Year I would never know because there is no way for me to not used the HX on the EZ 25\45 I have no bypass.
this is real handy info for any body who is think of doing the same as I.
so it make a Hugh different. and that is also doing a lot of tile jobs and running a rv 360i with a quad Head full time
now if you used a wand you number will be way more better than what I am using. I can not tell you what it would be if you are 100% wand only. I can only tell you what I have found to be true.

How does that translate into dollars?? I haven't purchased propane in a long time... How much is it to fill your tank


Cost for propane varies a lot in the same area. When it comes to your prices in PA verses in So. Cal its going to be even more crazy. Suffice it to say that propane here in So. Cal varies from $5.oo a gallon to $3.00 a gallon with in a couple miles.

do half with it and half without it whoa what different it made for me. cut my time in half. hope it does the same for you. also keep in mind I am using the CRB with the black brushes to scrub the tile. so that might also help in time.

What kind of heat are you getting without the heater and just the heat exchanger?
this you may not want to hear. If I am doing tile running for a good clip without stopping 160 deg hold real steady at the mach. if I stop and start doing other thing it will climb up to 220 -240 deg and hold that temp for about 2 min or less. on carpet with the rotorvac and a quad head. 160-170 deg and somtime I see 180 deg depend how much dry passes I do. wand I can't tell you nothing.

So it does put out the heat but not at the pace your working at.

Where are you reading these temperatures .. At the Wand or at the EZ ?

50hrs/8.5 gal of propane = .116 gal per hrs. 32.20 per tank/50hrs of used=.64 cents per hr of used is this correct is the math right.

that wrong. 29.75 price per tank of 8.5 gal. sorry. so 29.75/50hrs =59.5 cents per hours of used. not too bad if this is right.
