I'm really impressed that you already have thought out the whole fermentation temperature control! That is usually the one thing that's overlooked and the cause of so many...."why......" Questions!
Thanks! The cause of so many "why" questions I came across sealed the deal that I should get something setup. Figured I can record everything I do but if my ferment temps are all over the place it would be so much harder to solve/ improve on. Plus I like building stuff

Welcome to the forums!
A pressure reverse would be caused by the fermenting liquid somehow becoming colder than the ambient temp outside the carboy correct? If so I guess I could see where this has a slight chance of happening in my chiller/heater. The reason I went with a 3 piece was I thought it would be easier to clean. Maybe a s shape is the way to go.
