I was so unhappy with this chiller. Why? It lasted 16 months before the fan when out. When the fan went out, the chiller stopped cooling and I lost a lot of livestock as a result. In addition, I felt it was noisy in comparison to other chillers I have used. Overall, I wasn't happy at all with this chiller.

I got this for a 15g tank that hes been running at 86 degrees in the last month. Within 10 minutes the temp had dropped to 78- and within 30 it had dropped to 74! I was shocked at how fast it worked! I was also surprised when I saw that it had a spot to plug my heater in- it controls the heater as well to ensure they aren't fighting each other. The controls are simple and easy to read and understand. It was very easy to set up once I had the 1/2 inch tube and a pump. I'm not usually good at plumbing tasks- so that's important. It is quieter than a window unit air conditioner and in a totally silent room can be heard as white noise that periodically turns on and off but in no way is distracting. When my room sir gonditioner is turned on i csnt hesr the chiller at all. I would certainly say it's quiet. In the week ive had it running ive been worry free regarding my tank's temperature! I'm so glad I got thus chiller!
