    When the power cuts started a few years ago I changed my chiller setting to 23 degrees in an attempt to prevent the water temp go higher than 28 degrees when the power is off. My tank temperature went up to 31 degrees once after a long power outage. The chiller can handle much more water than my system capacity so I am not worried that the chiller will be taking strain.

    The power is much more reliable lately and I now wonder if I should not up the temperature a bit. The tank gets a lot of condensation on the very hot and humid days and I suspect having the temp higher will limit the condensation.
