Tom Brewster emailed to report that the second aquarium chiller has just come back from the manufacturer. That means that the TIC program at Owen Middle School can get back in action again and all 4 of our TIC projects will be up and running in time for the kids to raise and release their fish this spring. I really want to thank Tom for swinging into action and getting both of our defective chillers fixed under warranty–although it did cost us about $200 for shipping charges. Based on my contacts with the TIC program rep at TU we should expect to have continuing issues like this with these particular chillers, which are no longer recommended by the program. So we’re going to need to set aside some funds for repairs and replacements in the future.
