 Hello  Friends,  can  someone  suggest  me  what  are  the  various  companies  making  Chillers  for  Pond...  The  Pond  I'm  constructing  is  7m  x  6m  (LxB)  and  hieght  is  only  1.5  feet  ,  can  be  made  2  feet...  I  cant  afford  to  have  a  heavy  shelter  over  it,  and  it  will  be  on  terrace..  
 
 Thanks  a  lot,
 Vivek

 Have  a  shade  net  over  the  entire  pond  preferably  double  layered  with  good  circulation  in  the  pond.  You  wouldn't  need  a  chiller.  Finding  a  chiller  to  cool  that  size  would  make  you  poorer  by  a  few  lakhs.  
 
 Instead,  have  a  lot  of  plants  around  the  pond  and  some  in  pots  (lillies)  inside.  That  will  help.

 What  is  the  purpose  for  a  chiller  in  the  pond?
 
 make  the  pond  deeper  to  get  good  chill  water  at  the  bottom.  have  layers  of  projected  areas  in  the  pond  to  keep  your  plants.  just  a  suggestion.

 As  he  said  its  on  a  terace  so  no  deep  no  cover.
 When  you  say  you  cant  afford  a  cover  are  you  talking  about  costs  ?  or  something  else.
 Because  cost  of  fabing  a  cheap  cover  will  be  way  less  than  a  chiller  and  running  costs.
 
 Start  by  doing  some  tests  i.e.  what  is  the  temp  of  water  left  out  in  the  open.
 What  is  the  temp  of  water  under  shade  same  place.
 What  is  your  target  temps.
 
 Then  people  can  give  you  ideas.
 Ps:  You  don't  need  a  heavy  shelter.  A  simple  light  weight  shelter  would  do.  All  you  need  to  achieve  is  prevent  direct  sunlight  from  hitting  it

 Vivek,  
 
 If  i  got  your  dimensions  right  (7  metres  X  6  Metres  X  1.5  feet),  your  pond  would  be  weighing  5000  +  gallons.  Would  your  terrace  be  strong  enough  to  take  such  weight?

 Dont  see  any  issues.  Many  of  my  friends  have  Jacuzzi  that  size  on  their  penthouse  terraces.  With  no  issues.
 I  would  still  consult  with  the  builder  and  a  Structural  engineer.

 Well  you  could  make  a  simple  Shade  and  Use  thermocol  layers  inbetween  /  below  them,
 
 My  father  has  used  such  a  option  in  one  of  his  Industrial  plants.  That  area  water  stays  at  around  28deg.  The  plant  however  is  in  the  middle  of  no  where  and  does  have  open  grounds  around  it  with  lots  of  wind  blowing  most  of  the  time.  If  you  terrace  is  pretty  much  the  same  and  has  a  good  wind  blowing  across  it.  Dont  think  you  need  any  such  chiller.
 
 One  method  that  you  could  use  is  the  recent  one  designed  by  PK  using  A/c  outdoor  unit.  You  can  get  about  3  A/c  Outdoor  units  and  have  a  AI  Heatexchanger  coils  placed  around  the  pond.  This  could  work.
 
 Alternately  if  you  want  something  commercial  then  some  industrial  water  cooling  plants  can  help
 check  with  these  guys.

 Make  a  fiber  glass  shelter  and  use  a  large  AC.  BUt  really  this  is  just  wasting  money,  you  cant  keep  any  thing  in  the  open  cooler  than  the  surroundings.  Even  if  you  manage,  the  temperature  difference  will  fatigue  the  structure   cause  cracks  in  the  concrete  and  bring  the  roof  down.  You  are  talking  of  roughly  25  tons  here.  If  the  building  wasnt  designed  for  it  from  the  start,  there  is  now  way  you  can  construct  one  now.
