Hey folks,
like the tittle says.
looking to buy a water chiller/////heater...
the one i bought about 5 years ago from HTG was a chiller.. and had a 110 outlet for a external heater. ( i used a fish tank heater)...
that one sadly took a crap this spring, so bought another chiller. but to my surpise. it does not have that 110 heat option...
and cant seem to find a source to get another one.
the fish tank heaters i have dont seem to want to shut off even when turned down to 64 degrees.
the original one i had (have) the temp sensor is messed up......

any suggestions? I figure if i can find a heater/chiller.
i can use my current chiller for my veg. area for summer use...
Thanks for any leads.
my my

sorry I don't know anything about chillers other than knowing many fish-tank supply places sell them
http://www.marinedepot.com/ is the only place I go when I need that stuff (I do NOT have fish)

I don't need a chiller but I do use fish-tank heaters in both my totes (@70F) little 25w units off Amazon

a new tank heater (with working sensor) may be cheaper than a new chiller (just a thought)

good luck

I asked a buddy that has a couple different tanks (salt and fresh), he said go with a PINPOINT Temperature Controller they're around 200 and you just plug in your chiller to outlet #1 and heater to outlet #2 and set the temp you want.

HiGH folks,
figured i would update this thread.
my original chiller. was chilling only, that is why i needed to replace it..
so i did buy a new one, but like i had said, it didnt have a heater option. so i bought the one controller and it is working Great ....
my original chiller unit, chills only, so i ended up buying another controller.
about 2 weeks ago, i set up my veg area, to be a rdwc set up with the old chiller... Works Great, as temps here started to rise, an di was having the old problem of browning roots due to temps to high.
currently have 2 TCVG GG's f2's in veg. also have 1 of sickmedsseeds's Physco Crack, and also 1 of Ditchbanger's pre98 buba X Cleaner...
while i have 2 Physco Crack's under a !k flowering now... they will be ready soon... once they are finished, i will be switching over to LED's in flower room for the rest of the summer and Fall, intill i need the heat again...
