Video: Cold Climate Direct SDHW system with Recirculation Freeze Protection

I've mentioned this system before, and I finally made a video.  Please remember this is the first prototype system, and is intended to be temporary.  (It's ugly.)  Our current thinking is that the system isn't developed enough for general public consumption, but I definitely recommend it for do-it-yourself types in milder climates. It is literally the least expensive and most efficient system with freeze protection possible with off-the-shelf parts.

We've instrumented the prototype system, and are checking all the failure modes this winter and measuring the amount of heat lost due to freeze protection.  The video still raises many questions, so don't hesitate to ask them in the comments section here, or preferably at Youtube.
