    this unit [​IMG]has four industrial 240volt cooling fans so there is problem with power.

    [​IMG]
    the plugs are in series so were one cable goes in there can be another cable coming out for anything else that needs power.

    they do make a bit of noise but according to me its perfect for warm summer months.

    Your bet bet would be to start looking at computer shops, and places that do servers, thats were they use them the most these days, bt be warned they dont make a litle noise the do make a bit of noise

    Just be carefull to keep the setup dry. Fans generally get wet in a humid environment like a big tank. Personally I think it would be better to go the (silent) 12v route. I use the big diameter computer fans, and they work great.

    Yeah... a 1A transformer(about R130), can run 3 x 0.33A(large) fans(about R80 each).

    Clearly you not in Cape Town at this stage, Warr! We have had temps of up to 27 degrees celsius in the past week or so.....

    I nearly thought of switching off the heaters in my tank....
