Do you think you need that big of an immersion chiller of do you think you could get away with 25' X 3/8"? Also, what are you using for your drain parts/valve under the conical if you don't mind me asking?
As requested. This what I believe I used. I'm on vacation, so its hard for to check it at the moment, but it was something like follows.
I replaced the one on the tank with this one. http://www.norwescotanks.net/p-535-2-standard-duty-double-threaded-polypropylene-fitting.aspx
Not sure if that size is correct as I'm on vacation right now and not at home to check to see if it is 2" or something smaller. Just be sure to check your diameter if yours needs to be replaced.
Then I needed a reducer to step it down to 1" for my ball valve, so I ordered something similar to this, can't remember where I got mine. http://www.etanks.com/products/details.aspx?productid=5156
Then I added this 1" x short nipple to attach my ball valve to my tank. http://www.etanks.com/products/details.aspx?productid=5079
I then added this 1" ball valve. http://www.agrisupply.com/Ball-Valve-Poly-Npt/p/10194/&sid=&eid=/
and then screwed this 1" hose barb into the bottom of the valve http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200336282_200336282
From the exit of the tank, it goes:
- 2" Standard duty double threaded polypropylene fitting
- 2" MPT x 1" FPT Reducing Bushing
- 1" x Short Poly Nipple
- 1" BALL VALVE
- Polypropylene Hose Barb — 1in. Dia.
I hope this helps.
