Following the manufacturers instructions for flow rates chiller can be plumbed inline between a return pump and the display tank, placed between a canister filter and the display tank on the return line or using a dedicated pump a closed loop from sump to sump through the chiller can be used. After installation it is advised to check that actual flow rate achieved matches the manufactures specifications. It is advised to pass filtered water through a chiller as chillers can become blocked by passing unfiltered water through them.
