Thinking ahead for my jump into hydro… I will most likely need a chiller. I have an old one left over from my reef tank days, but that’s been a 10-15 yrs at least. It probably won’t work anymore, cause that’s just my luck.
I think I found a solution that is feasible to incorporate into a DIY RDWC 10 gal tote build. I will be adding a $12 part to the controll reservoir.
It is temperature controlled and claims a 10F pull down. I think it could be a solution for my thrifty needs. Plus I have an old computer power supply that I could tap into the 12v line, further reducing build costs.
The plan is to use an small trash can with a flip up lid as the Control Rez and incorporate this into it. This is an evolving idea. I’m working the design aspects of my build, and I could use some input.
Let’s discuss the pros and cons here, folks.
