So my water is probably lower than ambient but not as cold as typical ground water.
I had similar problems with an immersion chiller, took forever to get it down. I then invested in a counterflow chiller and dramaticly decreased my chilling time. I then invested even more money in a plate chiller and found that I should have bought one a long time ago. Well worth the money.
