Good idea, but that thick walls soft PVC tube is the worst election. <br> <br>If you change it with aluminum tube, you win a lot of efficiency.
Rimar2000; <br> <br>I had thought of this many times before but I am lacking the knowledge on how to bend tubing,( I have Two speeds,Bend and Break) unfortunately the thin line between i seem to skip some how. <br> <br>I had thought of going with a copper( 3/8 Id X 20 ) But came up with the same issue of bending until it formed a pinch . <br>I am still reading how to do this .I hear if you cap it full of water/sand it would work . <br>As time allows I will fix this issue and report back .
Thin walls tube breaks, but thick walls not so easy. Sand is better than water to do that.
Thanks for your input . <br>If I have the time this weekend ill give it a go ! <br><br><br>
Glad you had enhanced the device. Maybe it deserves a new instructable. Next summer I will do something so, but using a little water flow. Luckily, here there are not water use restrictions.
Rimar2000 ; <br> <br> Just some notes on this project. it was super simple and super fun but we have issues with the ice melting too fast. (at the same time I am begining to wonder of using block ice instead of bagged. <br> <br>Here in Midland Texas Water is in real short supply so using a &quot;open system &quot; is not a option for me . <br>my sons A/c went out in his apartment a few weeks ago . He &quot;Stole&quot; my fan and said I may not get it back . lol <br>HH
5/26/12 <br> <br>* Edit * <br> <br>I went and bought a roll of Aluminum Tube(25X3/8) <br> <br>Using the Zip ties I left the tube in the original &quot;Coil&quot; Just spread it out a bit more. <br>seems to be working well . <br>total cost for the tubing was around $45.00 <br>This project was a tab bit more then i wanted to spend , However if you have the stuff laying around ( I had at one time had all this in the garage already) it is a fairly cheap and fun thing to do with the kids. My nephew was amazed t how fast it cooled the room off.
