Small Chest Freezer for a DWC grow
call me crazy but i had an idea, would it be possible to use a small chest freezer as a reservoir, my reasoning for thinking this was that if it was on low setting it could keep water temps just right, no frozen water bottles & no expensive chillers, good old walfart has a 3.5-cu. ft, l 24" x w 24" x h 34", i know i know its kinda tall, but if you have the height...... whats everyones thoughts
Sounds damn good.
Some models you can't adjust the temp, so make sure you have that option.
Some of these you have to unplug and let it thaw out a little.
I'd still add you to the cooler club too ! lol
oooo am i in the club now....lol
i think some one should try it out, but just how low can you set it?
now how about something like this .....
if its too deep then just add 3 or 4 gallon juggs of water in there & that will take up less gallons of water = less nutes
Keep your food fresh in this Haier 3.5 cu. ft. chest freezer. It holds approximately 105 lbs. of frozen food plus it has adjustable thermostat control and an easy-access defrost drain.

Some you can control, some you can't.
My 12gal cooler is 15" wide x 21" long.
So I'd guesstimate that freezer is about 28 - 30 gallons.
It would be perfect for a RDWC too !
Slap a insulated styrofoam lid, like mines, on there and go for it ! lol
The rez will/should stay hella stable too !
+REP Weedler, for that info !
Nice bro, real nice.
thanks for that info weedler, i'm still fixated on this chest freezer idea...lol, my theory is, if its a sealed 1 piece instert in the freezer, no seams, why wouldn't it hold water, & if the freezer has a thermostat, can i dial it in to hold the water at my desired temp, 65 approx, if those 2 concepts are possible then i got it licked, some further investigating to do, off to applience stores the weekend for a snoop, i'll report back....lol
