Do you really need to pre chill your water?
I've only used the counter-flow chiller twice. The first time without a pre-chiller my wort went into the fermentor at 75°F. The 2nd time WITH the pre-chiller, my wort came out at 70°F.
I figure I might as well use the pre-chiller, since it's simple enough to use.
