How to Use

  1. Select an appropriate Hailea Chiller model based on the size of your aquarium or hydroponic system
  2. Ensure the chiller is properly positioned, providing adequate ventilation and stable support
  3. Connect the chiller to a compatible submersible pump, using suitable hosing and connectors
  4. Set the desired water temperature on the digital controller, allowing the chiller to maintain a stable environment
  5. Regularly check and clean filters, hosing, and connectors to ensure optimal performance and longevity of the chiller

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

Hailea Water Chillers are perfect for those who are looking to maintain a stable water temperature in their fish or coral aquarium, as well as those who utilise hydroponic or deep water culture gardening techniques for plant growth. They are particularly beneficial for temperature-sensitive species, such as coral, axolotls, and various fish, as they can help maintain a healthy balance in their ecosystems.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • Hailea Chillers do not come with a pump, hosing, or tank connectors; these must be purchased separately
  • For lower running temperature requirements, consider overcompensating for the size of your tank to achieve the desired temperature (e.g., a 100L tank may require a 250A model to maintain 18°C)
  • Ensure proper ventilation and support for the chiller to work efficiently and prolong its lifespan

How do Hailea Chillers help maintain temperature in aquariums and gardening?

Hailea Chillers help maintain a constant temperature for fish and plants by counteracting the heat generated by lights, pumps, and the surrounding room air. This ensures a stable environment for coral and fish with temperature sensitivities, as well as optimal water temperature for hydroponic gardening and deep water culture growing techniques.

Why are Hailea Chillers important for coral growth?

Hailea Chillers are crucial for proper coral growth in marine aquariums, as they help maintain the relatively constant temperature needed to ensure a stable level of oxygen in the water. This mimicry of a natural deep sea environment is essential for the health and growth of corals.

Can Hailea Chillers be used for hydroponic gardening?

Yes, Hailea Chillers are ideal for maintaining optimal water temperatures in hydroponic gardening. They ensure a steady 18-22C water temperature for the plants, promoting healthy growth and development.

Do Hailea Chillers come with a pump, hosing, and tank connectors?

No, Hailea Chillers don't come with a pump, hosing, or tank connectors. When using the chiller for an aquarium, it's recommended to run the chiller through an appropriately sized Aquarium Filter. Suitable pumps, hosing, and connectors can also be purchased separately.

What are the benefits of Hailea Chillers?

Hailea Chillers have a low noise design, a digital controller that ensures a selectable temperature is maintained, and they are perfect for hydroponics, aquariums, and aquaculture.

Should I overcompensate for the size of my tank if I want a lower temperature?

Yes, if using a Hailea Chiller to achieve temperatures lower than 25 degrees Celsius, it is recommended to overcompensate for the size of your tank. For example, a 100L tank would require a 150A model to maintain 18C.
