Next project my pump plus ice chest rig will be involved in is becoming my tig torch water source. I could go open loop tap water cooling like a lot of people because my barely alive crab grass could really use the water but there are no water hose faucets in the front yard.
Open loop torch coolers use tons of water and closed loop tig torch coolers cost several hundred up to $2,000.
So this thing is very economical.

The fan based seat cooler from page 7 actually works pretty good.
If you can get a little air moving under your butt it feels pretty nice.
$50 well spent.
