Where's the best place to find an immersion chiller? Are there any particular brands that are better than others

i used a length of copper pipe from the zircon suppliers and wrapped it around a keg. Only problem is that it was 10mm copper tubing and I am finding it hard to find compression fittings for it

Wouldn't sourcing copper piping be just as expensive as buying the chiller?

If you can split an 18 meter roll with another brewer it becomes pretty cost effective.

The big green shed has 3mtr x 12mm copper roles for around $15 . I used 9mtrs with a few joiners and elbows and total cost was around $50 . So if you have some ability to create stuff , this would be an easy project and a big cost saving if you don't charge for labour . ;)

I just checked eBay and there's one on there for $60, should be wary or is it not a big deal...
