its the 1/2" hose lah, its restricting the flowrate. I changed mine from 1/2" to 1" that made all the changes.

Some chillers have a restrictor built-in so no matter how much pressure the pump exert, only XXXL/hr will go in & out. In this case, there is nothing you can do.

However, if your chiller comes with a screw-in hose adapter, you can change it to a larger diameter to accomodate higher flow.
thanx...i/m using Resun CL450. will try using a higher flowrate PH 2000l/hr....info u when the chiller explode

Barra,

Recommended flowrate for Hailea 1/4hp chiller is max at 2000LPH.
Can I use a 3000LPH pump to run the chiller?
