Not that I have ever build a DIY chiller -- but perhaps you could 
improve your fridge system by puting a large plastic container into 
the fridge instead of a length of pipes. Depending on the size of the 
fridge, some 25-50 litres could be more effective. That way, the 
volume of water being in the fridge at any time would be greater that 
with pipes.
