    Hi Everyone,

    I am appealing to the distributors of Hailea Chillers in South Africa to post on this forum regarding the current stock situation.

    I have been waiting for months to get a HC150A, and was told by various suppliers in KZN and Gauteng that the distributor is awaiting stock.

    As of recent, the common replies have been that the chillers are on a ship, and models being sent to SA include the new HS range which are smaller and quiter.

    Shipment was being delayed at the harbour, but was due to be ready this week.

    I have now been told that the HS range are not in fact available and will only be available in Feb?

    Surely the distributors of this product in South Africa are aware of their stock list they the manufacturer is sending down to SA, they did order these right?

    Can some of the petshops/suppliers here please question the distributor as to whats going on? Definate stock and model availabilities for SA?

    Feedback would be much appreciated. i am sure there are other users on the forum that may also be interested.

    Hi. Getting one tomorrow from the The Waterboy-Marco. No HS-28A available. Apparently they didn't bring these in this time round. Only HS-52A. Apparently the 28A compares to the the HC-150A but I can't for the life of me find a link to say which on the HS-52A compares to. I think it's too large for my tank but I don't want to end up stranded without a chiller. Give Waterboy a buzz and see if he can get you one.

    ive been speaking to Marco, he advised the same thing. No HS28. although last week the suppliers sent an email to him saying the HS28 was on its way. Argh, cant understand how importers forget what they put in their own container. Its like a lucky dip.

    what are u paying for ur HS-52A?

    it does sound like a large unit, the hailea website doesnt even feature the new HS range lol.

    Hi , i Just called Scot at AD and he says they have discontinued the HC range completely , and the new H s range has landed ( W e have recieved a chiller or two , but the moddle HS 28 is allready out of stock...

    The two sizes smaller are available though.
    they are landing another HS chiller range in the middle of Jan and a 2nd oneAt the end of feb.

    There may be a importer or two who have the HC chillers still comming in , but its not AD.


    P.S The chiller Louise bought hers from is Sams , but the 28 is more than likly sold out - a more piopular size the HS 52A is available from us and proberbly most retailers at the moment.

    Thanks
    D
