So what would be more efficient, a 25' foot IC with a pump, or a 50' IC and then use my smaller IC in a bucket of ice hooked up to my water supply? Decisions, decisions.
This is what i have been doing. I really like. Gets 11 gals down in 15 mins sometimes quick. Recirculating with a march pump helps too.
Plus i started using the hot water to clear kegs, hlt and mash tun.
