Water Tank Cooler:

The main features of this 12V water tank cooler are:

  • Uses minimal grow space by installing directly into the side of the tank.
  • Low noise for discreet growing.
  • Includes a power supply (driver/power converter) for plug and play operation.

The ideal temperature of hydroponic nutrient solutions is somewhere between 18°C and 22°C for truly optimal plant growth and a water tank cooler (or water chiller) is the easiest way to get it right.

The water tank cooler operates with the Peltier effect (thermoelectric effect). The device has two sides and when DC current flows through the device it shifts heat from one side to the other. Therefore, one side gets cooler and the other gets hotter. The hot side is attached to the heat sink so that it remains at ambient temperature, while the cool side drops below room temperature.

This device is best suited for smaller reservoirs with a flat side to them – so that the unit can be installed to form a waterproof seal on the side of the reservoir. The device cooled 5 liters of  water from 30.7 degrees Celsius down to 22.6 degrees Celsius in 1 hour, and should help keep the temperatures of a reservoir of up to around 50lt cool.
