I bought mine from coppertubingsales. 50 feet of 1/2 for like $75 with shipping. They have immersion chiller kits too, but I opted to just push silicone hose over the ends of the copper tubing...no need for fancy fittings.

Yea I went with compression fittings, for two reasons:

  1. I didn't want to purchase soldering stuff.
  2. I have heard that having the solder in the water can degrade over time, but I don't know how true that is.
  3. Also compression fittings just look good!
