    Re: Chiller FAQ

    I need some help.

    I am keeping pinto shrimps, and red wine shrimps, I've failed many times due to the cooling capacity of the a peltier cooling, had the pump failing, hoses end melt and hose come off etc, my water is keep at 25 degree C, but the last 3 months temperature in my room is like 32-35 degree C, and water in my tank from 32-40 degree C if the chiller failes.

    I have a 3.4Gallon tank (16L) i'm considering the Resun mini-200

    I'm using a DIY Peltier setup with 3 peltier and double cooling, every thing is working fine, just too many hoses and high electric bill.

    Will the Resun mini-200 be OK, or is it too powerful for my tank, I have a sun sun canister filter at 1000L, but due to the size of the hose, the water output is greatly reduced.

    I have 5 shrimps in the tank, it's been living from 22nd October upto now.


    Thanks

    Does anyone know how many watts does the Hailea HC100A operate at.

    With all these chillers can the water reservoir be cleaned.

    I ran the chiller with dechlorinated water in a pail.
    Just to make sure no loose dirt or manufacturing contaminants inside.
    Then I was a little concerned with the water inside so i use mouth to blow one end of the chiller to squirt the remaining water out.
    But i think i am over cautious.
    Running the chiller outside doesn't mean anything. I just want to make sure the chiller works before i plumber it into my filter.

    Re: Chiller FAQ

    My chiller 1.1 amp
    Power = 260W
    Per day it runs 10 minutes twice every hour
    So 1 hour draws 85W
    One day = 2000W
    One month = 60kW
    Tuas power charge 18 cents per kWh
    Elect bill for chiller = $11-$12 extra

    In simple terms,
    1 Amp chiller cost $10
    2 Amp chiller cost $20
    Figures are simplified and round off for simplicity to read.
