Re: [APD] Re: Chemists: Aluminum and the Freshwater Aquarium?
A power (hang on) filter filter can work instead of
drilling the tank. Set the Iceprobe into that and the
filter pump will recirculate the water.
I think you'll find that peltier devices generally will
cost more to purchase and more to operate than conventional
(compressor) types of chillers. The only rub is if you want
a very small chiller. The main advantage of peltier devices
is that that can be had in very small packages -- small
enough to cool PC CPUs.
The radiator leaking over the electricals shouldn't be a
big deal, at least as far as sparks go -- the GFCI should
trip immediately ;-)
