I need to upgrade my Chiller HC-500A. It can not handle my 2meter tank (1000L) since I put 3 x 400W MH over it. Before that it was perfect. It is 8 months old. Asking R3800.00

I have posted this on behalf of Mad German

Please PM him regarding the chiller

Thanks

Leigh

Have you worked out how much it cost to run? My aircon in my room rund from 9pm to 7am every morning as I like sleeping with it, my electrician told me it costs R7 per night to run. I have one where my tank is and it also runs on off and room temp is 20. I bet it costs around the same to run.. R14/ day so lets say it runs 1/2 the time R200 per month over 12 months = R2400.... 24 months....R4800 see where it's going?

everything costs something to run your pumps lights metal high lights anyway i suppose it is a personal thing i think for myself why should the fish be cool if we all can be cool i am sure you can make the same kind of sums for the ruuning of your metal hilights or whatever some people smoke a pak a day i dont smoke so maybe i use that lol

True... I'm unfortunatly not home very often so I found running the aircon 100% of the time a huge wast of energy...

I started to work everything out and stopped when I realised I did not want to know how much my tank chews...
