    Hi All

    I have this idea about a chiller i started taking apart a smaill water cooler the other day and l discoved is has a resavar were the water is chilled how i under stand how it the water is the room temp ,water flows down from the the main water filter in this resavar then it is chilled with a fan and a hest sink with one of thoes electronic devies the the one side gets extemly hot and the other verry cold and but the looks of things there is no metal to water contact

    I was thinking that u could have a verry small pump the pass the water though the chiller resaver and it whoud drop but a few deg's

    let me know what you guys think

    Sounds like an interesting idea I know one of the problems with most coolers is copper. Im tagging along to see how this goes. Do you know if its pvc? what cooler is it?
