I've read that article. Also, I have a marine friend who has done a lot
research and such on thw subject. He uses an old air conditioner with the
coil hanging in a bucket and coils of tubing that contain water being
pumped to and from the tank. I've seen it, and it works very well. Almost
as efficient as a chiller.
