    Hey not to get away from question but a simple search for heated wetsuits turned up a ton of options. I know the cost may be a factor but comfort and safety is important .

    The heater on my 4" appears to have been made similar to the ones shown in these instructions HOW_TO_BUILD_WET_SUIT_HEATER

    not listed in the literature is the plumping, I'll try to get a picture of mine, the water comes from the hose bib on the pump, first is an inline filter to get the fine sand n silt out of the mixing valve, following the filter is a T fitting, one line goes to the heater, the other goes as the cold water line to a thermostatic mixing valve, you roughly set the desired temperature and it mixes the hot water off the heater with cold water from the T accordingly, after that it goes to a steam tank which is a PVC pipe tank of about half a gallon volume that helps stop steam bursts should the mixing valve be clogged by fine particulates. From there it goes down a hose to your suit.

    Wear a polartec dive skin to lessen the chance of burns. Don't let the water hit your skin directly.
