Here we go:

The valves and snap connectors are so I can disconnect it and move it in and out of the shed without having to drain and refill every time, which would be a pain :angry-banghead:
I've gotta sort out the kinks in the clear vinyl tubing, I'll get some elbows for it.
Both sets of pvc tubing are just sitting in place and so can be moved out from along the walls as need be. Everything packs back under my bench with enough room for my 60, 23 and 2 x 11 L fermenters.
Each fan of the radiator runs on its own 25 A 12 V DC transformer.

That's ripper set up!

I will benefit from close proximity to the pool for now, but will (at some stage) look into a radiator setup; be it car radiator or old AC radiator... power is the main concern running 2 x 2400W elements.

Yeah my elements are 2000 W, gives me some extra power to run pump (35 W), lights (Ikea LEDs) and transformers. I run all these on the circuit that is also for my power controlled element, so when I dial back my element (usually to 400 W, with the other on 2000 W), there's plenty to go round.
