Yep. The AquaEuroUSA 1/13hp chiller is on my build list. And +1 for the tupalware idea, I currently keep my canister filter in a bucket in fear of leaks.

I think I will make an attempt at a build thread when the time comes.

As i mentioned in my post above, i will be getting AquaEuroUSA 1/13hp chiller. I am however running into a problem with finding the proper external pump. I looked at the Lifegard Aquatics Quiet One Aquarium 1200 Pump that i also decided on getting for my phosphate reactor but it seems like it might be to powerful. Is this true?

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Could be yes. You just want your reactor to tumble water through its media, the faster the flow the more less the media picks out of the water, the slower.....you get it. Usually reactors are only running like 80-120, depending on the media.

Sry reef, but I think you misread my question. I'm looking for a pump to use with my chiller. Can I use the 1200 that you recommended for the phosphate record?

Wholly crap, my bad. Lets see if I can get this right. Your chiller calls for 160-290gph flow, so I think your safe with that one. Not much of a real pump though, don't really know how well it will run with headloss. You should probably try to get a water pump and not a power head.
