A ring at the top and the bottom - copper tube bent in a circle, soldered together with a coupling. The air runs up both the outside and the inside.

But I like your design. I like one of a kind stuff, experiments ftw Especially when they work well

Ok, got it! Very ingenious actually. The only thing I could think of was a ring at the bottom, but I was thinking pvc.....but that would also require good vertical alignment (plumb). With what I did it will keep itself off the walls except for maybe one contact spot if the plumb is off.

Cool, very cool....

Ok, messed up the bong mod a bit and it took me a minute to figure out a simple way to fix what I screwed up! Once it dawned on me....it was like: well, yeah, DUH! Too many holes and some that are just too big. Here's the fix:

Cut some pieces of pvc pipe of workable length and then split them:




Add some pvc glue to the pipe and DIY "Collars".....and attach collars:




Drill fewer and/or smaller holes:




Cut a few zip ties in order to get the terry cloth back up over the collars and then re-zip-tie:




Get everything set back up and check the functionality:



So I wound up with 3 rows of 4x 1/16" holes....12x 1/16" holes total...per tube.


Ok. I'm Happy now.

Edit: Amazing. Truly Amazing. The Bongs are virtually silent now. Almost zero water noise and the only sound left is the fans. At 13w or 8w....they are not very loud at all. Very Cool.

Outside ambient is ~83F. Out-building ambient is 95F. Res temp is 85F and HVC temp is 83.5F. I just turned on the car rad fans after having them off for 8hrs. Looking to see what effect that has on the out-building temps and all the others....

That is looking really good there sir! Props to you for a clever fix for a unique set up
You should come visit us over in the water cooling section... we have a little thread called the bong lovers club

He has both, on the same loop. The 'volenti' cooler cooling the water in his bong coolers reservoir. The towels and vertical tube in the bong tower is a experiment/change to see how it will affect performance of the bong cooler.

They work by evaporation. As some of the water evaporates, it takes some heat from the surrounding area.
This is the same way that sweat evaporating on your skin lowers your body temperature.

Auto: Water changes, lights, C02, Fert dosing, etc, etc, etc.....don't even need to feed the fish. Anyway, Appliance timers really help out on that. I have some extras that I'm not currently using, so I decided to hook up a double appliance timer:





This timer controls 2 appliances which is perfect for my car rad fans:



I should have done this sooner. The day time highs and the night time lows--during spring and fall-- are a real pita, because during the day I have to watch my cpu high temps and at night I have to watch out for condensation when temps outside get somewhere below 48F/9C. During the winter the setup is switched over to the indoor rad to help provide winter heat, so that's not a problem. But spring and fall are murder.....

Right now the fans are set to come on at 9am and go off at 11pm. That will save 10hrs of wear-n-tear and a little juice (90w on high). I will probably run the fans 24/7 once summer temps get here, but we'll see what happens there.

The Bongs and Horizontal Volenti Cooler handle the load very well. The only issue may be the high humidity at night and during the early morning. So, for now, between 11pm and 9am the system will run on the Bongs and HVC. Adjustments will be made as temps/issues rise....
Just quoting this over here, since turning off the car rad fans will leave the system cooling to the bongs....

Just wanted to toss this up here:



i7 @3.4 (and 2 other quads) running on the Bongs and HVC only. Ambient outside is 52F/11C. Last 160hrs the max is 68C--that's bongs/HVC only at night, and bongs/HVC + Rad Fans from 9am until 11pm. Highs outside in the low 80'sF/ ~28C.

Not too bad really. It's about 90% humidity.

The i7 will do a whole lot more, of course, but the ApogeeGT block just can't handle it, so I've turned it down probably for the summer.
