Well its been over 1 1/2 years and still going strong. A few points.

During partys the door gets open too much and freezes over the condensation unit. So now i run the fans at full blast then turn them down after the party.
Also the door seals have started to leave quite a bit of condensation I may need to add a heater wire behind the seals.
The thermostat had allowed it to freeze over a few times need to change that out for a new one.

Everything else works great.

Made me laugh and imagine the following scene:

theguest: Whoa, dude! You have beer taps coming out of the wall!

thehost: Yup. Help yourself.

theguest: Awesome! Where do you keep the kegs?

thehost: Under the stairs.

theguest: No way! Can I check it out?

Repeat for every (male) guest.

Just so they don't scream like little girls on the Hien commercial with the walk in.

Haven't been back in a while started a bunch of new projects. Let me tell you this walk in has been a absolute joy to have. There has been no noticeable difference in the electric bill and I haven't had any problems once I removed the variable speed on the evaporator seems that was slowing down the fan and causing freeze overs. I also installed the heater in the door seal and now have zero condensation.

I keep the temperature at about 36-38 the unit doesn't cycle on often as long as the temp prob is in water. But i've never timed it Again no noticeable change in the electric bill so i'm not to worried how many times it comes on. I still need to try out that Goop stuff from a cold pack.
