Works as advertised By LOUIS on 8/30/13LOUIS would recommend this product to a friendI plummed it in, let the water flow, checked for leaks, no leaks. Turned it on set the temperature, and let it go. Its been running for two days with out fluctuation in temperature. My return pump is louder than the actual cooler. I really like the video demos provided for the equipment that is sold on Bulk Reef Supply, I think that's what sold me on the actual system.
Excellent Chiller, low noise By gchap on 6/1/13gchap would recommend this product to a friendI have 125 Gallon display and 30 gallon sump, 8 T5's. Before I got the chiller, the display would get up to 82 - 83 Deg F. Since I installed The chiller, the display stays at 77.5 Deg.
excellent inline chiller By 241wrasse on 12/22/12241wrasse would recommend this product to a friend75g tank + 30g sump have been running on this chiller for 2-3 years now. Rock solid, easy to setup & use. Keeps the temp steady on the system, even when running the metal halides. Avoiding parboiled livestock is critical summertimes in the desert Southwest! Well thought-out design, comes with a variety of connectors, easy to read LED temp indicator - product picture shown is with the system off.
Great quality chiller! By TridentSSBN on 11/23/12TridentSSBN would recommend this product to a friendI primarily purchased this for a controller free 65 gallon setup and it worked flawlessly. Upgraded to a 150 and this thing still rocks! I have to say that I will purchase another in the future if the situation presents itself.
Works Great in 108 Degree Weather By Toby on 9/21/12Toby would recommend this product to a friendI'm running a 1/4 HP on a 110g tank w/ 30g sump at 77 degrees with a RKE and temp probe for the control with a +/- 0.2 degree range. It holds the temperature steady at 77 even with an outside temperature of 108, (90+ inside).
Each time the controller turns on the chiller, the chiller has a 3 mninute start up period before the chiller begins to chill the water which helps with power spikes.
Great chiller By jrsevy on 8/17/12jrsevy would recommend this product to a friendThis things works great. The only issue is the largest barb connector supplied with this is 0.75". I run a 1" line and had to use a 1.25" rubber coupling to a 1.25" to 1" barb to attach my 1" hose. Had to stretch a short piece of tubing over the chiller nipples after Teflon taping to keep it from leaking when adding the rubber coupling. The flow seems to have doubled now, as I run my sump return line for the main 140 gallon tank circulation with a Sicce Syncra 10 pump.
I have asked the manufacturer three times what size are the nipples so I can buy the correct size female socket to 1" barb and I've gotten no answer. It is metric and probably 30mm? It's hard to find metric PVC fittings here in the US. This would be a more permanent connection. A 1" barb connection should also be supplied in the box.
I like it By Keep with the program dori on 7/15/12Keep with the program dori would recommend this product to a friendWant with this one due to others recommendations. Wanted quiet. And it is!
My skimmer is defiantly louder and this is outside the cabinet. When it turns on it is audible but hardly. The jbj calculator seems to be accurate to my needs.
low noise good temp monitor By David on 4/29/12David would recommend this product to a friendI had an issue with high temps in Massachusetts - yes it does get warm - so I bought the JBJ to ensure no live stock loss. to try it out I cranked up the heater and turned down the temp - unit kicked on and did not shake rumble or hum enough to annoy the wife - this is a keeper
Running strong for three years By Steve on 3/17/12Steve would recommend this product to a friendHave this chiller on my 90 gallon. It's last me three years without a problem.
One Quiet Chiller By Evan on 2/20/12Evan would recommend this product to a friendI purchased a used version of this chiller. After taking it apart and cleaning it, I feel that this is a very well built chiller. When running the chiller is very quiet.
This is the best chiller By bobby on 1/23/12bobby would recommend this product to a friendI own this chiller for my 110 gal tank i did not buy this from BRS at the time i was looking i did not know about BRS. I should have done my research i over paid at foster& smith man was that really dum of me BRS is much cheaper.this chiller has been on my tank for 5 yrs works like a champ knock on wood it iis quiet you got to get it
