    Wow. Quite the setup. I assume since it says during the learning stages, you have since lifted your electric off of the ground? Nice job man.

    Those coolers are a great idea! I see them all the time at the thrift store for cheap! Subbed!

    20170915_145153.jpg Those coolers in part make this whole operation run like clockwork. Each "unit, as a whole" is on a chiller set at 60° there would be Hella condensation issues if I didn't use coolers. Currently in the process of upgrading to all 10 gallon. Thank you for your interest.

    Damn, that's a very slick looking operation you have.....you must have been a plumber or pipe fitter at one time.

    How are the pipes secured to the coolers? Silicone or PVC sealant?

    Only with 1/2" male screw and female fittings(threaded coupling) and tape. No glue. There's no pressure on that line. I'll be building two 5 gal coolers tomorrow. Just unscrew the spigot and reuse the white washer/o ring,washer combo if you can. Dont screw it too tight or the white washer will crack. The only leaks i ever had was when i didnt use tape on the threads. I can snag some pics for ya.

    Interesting. Ya, pics or another entry when you're really bored would be great. I'm surely not the only one who finds different set-ups fascinating.

    I'm also curious as to how the pvc attaches to the cooler. I've been looking to converting a cooler I have into a reservoir for my nutes.
