Question, How large a space does your heat exchanger occupy?

3 PE pipes inside a larger PE pipe is NOT very flexible.  Bend radius
for this configuration is measured in feet.

It not very thick, to be sure, but to collapse this into a practical
shape, (100 linear feet of tubing in the rafters of a basement will NOT
fit in most houses), you'll need to bend this into a coil of say about 5
or 6 feet in diameter, several feet high.   You quoted some figures for
the dimensions of the assembled unit, but now those dimensions as I
recall them don't make sense.

Either 1) 2' diam x 6' tall, or 2) 7' OD x 2' ID x 4" tall.

Nobody said it would, nitwit :-)

Wrong again. The drainpipe is about 4.25" OD.
