Hi Guys,

what fans do you use on your sumps and where can i get some in JHB.... i have spoken to hardware shops, computer shops and builders warehouse, the closest thing i can find is a tiny pc fan (and i mean tiny)which would do no good and then the next thing is an extrctor fan from builders at a sweet R800 odd.......

Help please fellow JHB reefers !!!!

Go here www.fort777.co.za and in the search box at the top type in axial fan

They deliver door to door, I have ordered a few things from them and had no problems.

Andreas - that is the same type of fan that I have running over my sump. I also have 2 other fans - so I can switch them on as I require (or off as I require).
Cool. I'll be using them to cool my lighting hood.I was thinking of getting one of those block fans at Game etc to use in the sump.The cost about R150 and it's way bigger than these ones

So I can just hook these up to a cable and plug it in the main power? It might be my childhood ventures of plugging 12V devices into the mains that is making me feel a bit dodge...

Can also check Communica between Pretoria and Johannesburg. They got different sizes, from 40*40mm to 120*120mm. Also 12v and 240v.

Plastic or black anodized aluminium.

I just ordered 2x 120 mm 230V ones, for my diy canopy. I noticed that there are 2-pin connectors, anywhere that I can source these?
