    Has anyone had any experience with these chillers? It says good up to 12 gallons:

      There's only one review and it's bad, I saw the thermal ice probe for 114 on eBay hint hint. And it actually works ☮️

      Mount it to a piece of Styrofoam and float it,🙃 just an afterthought.

        Id say insulate the litte grow box and if its only 2.5 gallons id say float about a cup of ice ever few hours and cool it down to about 58 and it should remain there for under 70 for about 5 to 6 hours give or take a few hours depending on how well the insulation is

        Graff420 I will look into insulation of reservoir, but it would have to be paper thin insulation because it's inside a small grow box.

      I've never tried this one ATU but looks good on paper . Might be about the same as the one you are looking at but smaller case .https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073VJJKXR..._s0bFzbPJ6NCSM
      This needs a small water pump but amazon has small ones for 7bucks too
      Take a look at it and you can put a hose down the middle of a piece of foam to stop intake from clogging .

        OK ATU no problem but the one you saw on eBay is a peltiier cooler too just in a bigger box . I will keep looking but there is a reg larger heat pump type on amazon but around $150

        Also ATU all chillers that I have seen needs to be hooked to a pump . When I had saltwater aquariums I had a big chiller 1/10 HP well small for big tank but they have a small compressor pump like a refrigerator. The pelltiers are just a heat transfer chip rated in watts not horse power .

        MedMan I am getting my terminology xonfused. I have a 1/10hp chiller for my big grow box and I know the one on wbay needs a pump. I am asking lots of questions. Out the ebay one to find out warranry, chiller life etc.
