Love the improvised chiller thread, keep it going :)
I found this 'Bait Chiller' on fleabay: its new, 1hp and chills up to 1000 gallons to 35 degrees.
Item number: 120536160621
Here is the description:
Unit are new and have been in storage Unit sits on top of tank. Unit has been test and is in good working condition. Chill water from 35 to 70 degree F
Aerates water from the bottom
Heavy duty construction
Unit made for chilling water for bait ships. it's made to sit on top of a tank. Unit works in Hydroponics, Aquariums, Industrial, bait ship, lab, etc. Pulls water from the bottom, in the process the water is chills and aerated. It's construction is of non-corrosive materials. It can be used in salt water. Unit made in 1996 , but never used, Has been storage. Unit original cost over $4,000 1in 1996. Power by 120 VAC, very quite unit.
It's called a workhorse, chilling up to 1,000 gallon.
It has a built in thermostat
Whats cool with a chiller like this is the large volume of water you could chill in one tank, pump all your hot water to a separate tank that sits and cools until your 12 hour light cycle is over. Then its pumped in to top off your chilled tank.
The bad part of a chiller like this is you have to live close to Harrah, Oklahoma to pick it up or have it shipped :) Thought I'd share the find as it also aerates and might be perfect for one of you guys. He has a couple of them btw and I don't know him from adam so make sure to check it out thoroughly.
They were $4k in 1996.. whats the ticket on them today? Can it be converted to 240v?:character0053:
