Good unit By Joseph on 7/22/2013Joseph would recommend this product to a friendExcellent chiller. Quiet, which is saying a lot for a chlller - they aren't by nature ever quiet, but this one is. Brings the temperature in my 120g down 1 degree in a good 20 minutes on a hot, humid day. Can't really beat that.

JBJ Chiller 1/5 HP By Joseph on 7/21/2011Joseph would recommend this product to a friendI use this for a 70 gal tank - no problem. Handles the load beautifully, running for less than 5 min per chill cycle.
Great value,great product By Daniel on 6/24/2011Daniel would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this here because of the great price, it was $100 dollars more on other sites that i looked on. it does what it says works great, very quiet. Other sites told me i needed a 1/10 unit but i used the calculater on this site and it told me i needed the 1/5 unit. Thanks Bulk Reef Supply for getting me the right size unit at a great price.

Do chillers heat the tank too? Lets say room temp is 70 and water is 70 will it heat the water up to 80?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Timothy,
They do not. They chill the water to a cool temperature but you would need a separate heater to heat the water if it is too cool.

Would it be possible to hard plumb this to my tank with PVC ? and if so what size fittings would screw on the 1/5hp model ?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Edgar,
The chiller uses proprietary unions on the chiller itself that attach to barbed elbow connections (they come with a variety of sizes). This is actually idea for a piece of equipment like this as you would want to run pipe to within a few inches of the chiller and then use a short piece of flexible tubing (ideally silicone) to bridge the last few inches. Chillers vibrate quiet a bit and this will reduce the transmission of those vibrations to the rest of the plumbing, which should keep things a lot quieter.

The JBJ Arctica Chillers incorporate some of the most advanced technological features to create a solution to stabilize water temperatures for your aquarium environment.
Titanium Heat Exchanger
Exclusive titanium coil design creates maximal contact exposure.
Condenser, which is located on the front side of the chiller, draws cool air from the front and exhausts the warm air out the back. This unique placement also allows direct access to clean the condenser grill without any tools to take the chiller apart.
Low energy consumption means lower cost. The highest BTU (British Thermal Units) heat removal capacity with the lowest AMPERAGE draw.
Fully Automated Digital Thermostat
Automatically control your temperature within +1/-1 Fahrenheit using the built-in thermostat. Includes a bright LCD that can easily be read day or night.
Least Noise and Smallest Vibration Level
You will be amazed at how uncommonly quiet this chiller is. Definitely an attractive quality for aquarists with tanks located in living rooms.
Many of the Arctica chillers are no larger than a standard desktop computer. Their compact size makes placement easy, even if you don't have a large designated area.
Lift and move your chiller easily using the ABS molded handles.
2 Year WarrantyArctica Chillers are covered by a 2 year warranty, direct from the manufacturer to you.
