    Can anyone tell me where I can get my Hailea chiller 'serviced' it is not cooling down the water enough in this heat. I have had it about a year, and I think the guy I bought the tank from had it about eighteen months. I have cleaned out the front filter panel.

    Have you checked that the flow is not to strong through the chiller. As it won't get enough exchange time. Otherwise the gas might be finished. If so you can try a refrigeration repair shop to re gas for you.

    I am sure it is the gas, it was working well when I first set the tank up. Thanks, I will take it to a fridge mechanic.

    We picked up we had a problem with the pump, so that problem is resolved, however I am still trying to find out where I can get spare parts as the pipe fitting has been cross threaded.
