Are you sure that running fans over the tank will not do enough for you in the way of cooling.

If you put like 100ft of hose in the fridge you should be able to get it cooler than it was before it went into the fridge but you would also need to make sure the flow was slow enough.

One thing I have heard is that chillers unless they are vented will heat the room's air up as they cool the water. As the air temp increases the need to cool the water goes up. Kind of a catch22.

yeah if i was to get a chiller i would have ouside but covered with a small extension at the back of the garage, which is basically a little ally with roof of granate.

i would love to get that chiller but being over the 'pond' is a slight problem
