    I'm looking to get a chiller and when i went in to order one at LFS they had a used 1/4 HP Pacific coast imports (CL-650) chiller thats only about 6 months old. anyone use this type of chiller? or have any experience with them?. I believe its made by Gen-X.

    I have owned a Resun CL - 650 chiller and if you google that you will find its almost identical in terms of looks

    My experience with the Resun model was very good
    Im assuming these are made in same factory using common components
    with only the branding and logos being different

    I've never used their smaller chillers. I had 4 of their industrial heater/chiller combos. I can say this about their customer service. I had a problem with a circuit board/sensor. Even though it was out of warranty, they sent me a replacement for free and even called me at the shop to talk me through how to replace it.

    went ahead and picked it up, brought the tank from 83 to 80 in 30ish minutes so I'm pretty happy. its not super quiet but it is not bad about the same as my dishwasher.
