That looks almost like my chiller, but I have short garden hose attaches on the water side.

The garden hose attaches to the immersion chiller and acts as a pre chiller if I add ice right now it just runs through cause it's nice and cold here in Boston. And I can lager in a garbage can that I fill with snow.

Whoa, nice.

How hard is that to clean? Do you just pump hot oxy through it?

Not the best pics in the world but this is what I ended up making for a friend of mine. It was somewhat of a shame to cover up that stainless steel head on the chugger, but at least it is balanced in the toolbox.

Very nice! Does it get hot in there? Did you go with RTD's to account for this? I really dig your layout....can you show pics of it closed?

Where did you get the new magnet from? I bought one of these chugger pumps and for some reason the impeller wouldn't spin. I took the stainless steel housing off and the motor spun just fine. I'm thinking there's something wrong with the magnet or impeller. Any thoughts??

I didn't get a new magnet, just make sure the magnet isn't touching the housing. I had to adjust mine when I put the space between the housing. Once you have the housing off you can adjust the set scree holding the magnet and adjust as necessary. Hope that helps. But if not ask away.
