What you can do with it (ales, lagers, cold crashing,etc.) will depend upon the operating range of your setup. What is that range?

I have not had a chance to do any testing, but the Cool-Zone cooling jacket, in theory, can cool to lagering temperatures. I'm using a 5-gallon cooler to keep my cooling water cold and assuming I replenish the ice daily, I suspect I can reliably hit temps in the 50's F. I set it last night to 67 F and it held that temp overnight without problem. The heater will rarely come into play with my ambient temperatures of 68 to 70 in my basement. To get to lagering temperatures, I suspect I'd have to move the cooling water and pump into my kegerator.
