True. The bathroom idea is probably unworkable. But I can think of a few such applications which might work. It could be a wintertime heater for the main living space. It might work in a sauna, in some fashion. It might help temper the cold of incoming well water before it runs into the hot water tank, in the non-heating season, and also provide a small amount of copper in the line for a small amount of anti-microbial benefit.
We counter-offered at $200. We'll see if he bites.
Thanks, Corwyn! And Nick!
