I am new to welding and I'm interested in it as a hobby. Why do the coolers cost so much. If it just needs to circulate water?

The Procon style pump is pretty normal in the commercial TIG torch coolers. They're not actually that expensive to build your own cooler.

I have used a cheap Ebay pump with a bypass, an old pc watercooling radiator and 2 120mm fans and a 230v ac to 12dc power supply for years. Works the same as a professional unit only way cheaper. You do need the bypass as the pump puts out too much flow for the small bore hoses in a torch. This will give cavitation, noise and premature pump failure.

Cool stuff, thanks! I would totally do this. but I'd probably use a coupon and get a pump from Harbor Freight! They're actually pretty decent if you don't get the cheapest ones (I have one that's been working for over 3 years)! The flow rate is always super exaggerated but just pay close attention to the H-Max, Max Head, Lift, etc. more is better!

the problem is without a radiator the water is going to get hotter and hotter the longer you weld, you can hook up a line to your sink in your house and just let it flow outside and it would work better, no pump needed or anything

not to say that is a good way to do it either though, haha tap water will corrode brass and copper over time, but if your welding with some $20 ebay torch who cares, right?

$450 or $12??? Realistically, if the $12 set up gets the job done, and continues to work, why spend the $450??? Add a few bucks to the 12 and put a fan and radiator in the line.
Ed Gosselin 14 days ago
Ya. I know that's the idea, but. Wouldn't take much to make it a very inexpensive and viable piece of equipment. I've seen similar, intended for temporary fix. 35 years later, still being used with no issues 😎 Sometimes, the best way to get the expensive name brand box, is to look in the neighbors garbage. Seriously though, you're using a 100% duty cycle pump. it's cheap, but also intended to run for years. and a bucket. I saw someone else say to use a cooler. That would work better, could even put some ice in. I'm just an old farm boy/truck driver/heavy equipment operator/diesel mechanic/metal fabricator. Quite honestly, I've done some pretty sketchy emergency repairs on some things. sometimes the simplest, cheapest thing can turn out to be the best option. Oh ya. I like your $450 cooler, that's way better than the $2,000-$2,500+ that the real ones used to be!!! Probably because someone found a cheap pump and tank, put it in a box with their name on it.. And sold them.. I see the cheap pump as being kinda like the fix on the air intake on a $560k Case IH Steiger tractor. The position of the air intake sucked up too much dust, an engine air filter wouldn't make it one day. Silly farmers in eastern Oregon bent a piece of old irrigation pipe and added to it. problem solved! 6 month later, and Case IH had a contract with a private company to retrofit new tractors, for $2,500 each. Looked like same and worked the same as the farmers $25 fix.. Just saying 😎

Ed Gosselin Very realistically- it's a temporary solution that has not been tested against a cooler. I'd use it only as a temp solution or emergency thing to get a real TIG cooler.

This is pretty much the way our ancient Miller has been keeping cooler for the past few years. The warmer the water gets, the faster the bucket starts to evaporate. It's not amazing, but it definitely works fine.

Michael Vargo 15 days ago
This is pretty much the set up I've been using for a while now. I used to have the water running through a small heat exchanger harvested from an old air conditioner but the pump I was using didn't have the power to push through some 60 feet of tubing in the exchanger.
Robert Dinicola 15 days ago

Keith Jurena 15 days ago
You need more flow and that pump lacks pressure to get flow. 10 feet of leads means 20 foot path of 1/8 hose. This is why coolers use gear pumps, positive displacement types which push 50+ psi. You can try a diaphragm type pump which are polymer construction so they won't have issues with high frequency emission during AC GTAW
Magnus 15 days ago
What was the ambient temp in the shop Justin? Using a 'bucket' that dissipate heat would improve the 'system'. Larger volume of water also would help. Main problem is when you got the water to warm to be efficient it will take a long time to let it cool.

would like to see a comparison to the Everlast cooler, saying one heat exchanger is more ghetto than another heat exchanger without numbers is just opinion. if the bucket had a lid and a better pump and was plugged into the welder instead of the outlet..less ghetto ?? heat exchange is heat exchange.imho.

This is a great video. I picked up a lot of good info. Just something to be aware of, those IR thermometers are very inaccurate on shiny materials. Anybody interested can google the reasons why, and some even have a setting to adjust to the emissivity of the material. But in my experimentation they always read low on even semi-shiny aluminum. My bet is your work pieces were much hotter than you measured there. Would love to see the weave vid!

cec4video 15 days ago
if you use a cheap car fuel pump and a shower head on the return end a bit in the air it would work very well and the water would cool down due to evaporative cooling. depending on how much you spend on a psu a rig like that would cost about 50$ and be very reliable since car fuel pumps are pretty dependable.

Two holes in the refrigerator that you keep your lunch in- one gallon bucket and pump in the bottom of the fridge,  and use a small copper coil in the fridge to run from the torch return water to the bucket. Works great, weld all day.Note, run your compressed air through another  copper coil in the same fridge- with a water trap on the outside, and you also have totally dry air for the shop.

To make a long story not short, My first water cooler was when I got hold of a free water cooled head and hose, turned My sears colormatic stick welder over to TIG scratch start, (DC only of course) bought a radiator and electric fan from a new Aries K that had been wrecked (Aries K cars had just came out in 88/89 ?- I'm dating Myself here) and used a sump pump (the hose outlet/inlet size fit the radiator hoses) and two tanks (the second tank was where the hose was downsized to the head. Anyway - Worked great for years and sold the set up years later for $800.00. Cost Me around $200.00 to make and used for about 4 or 5 years and bought My first AC/DC TIG machine for $4,500.

Love your shows thank you. Just noted you didn’t trust the inferred thermometer which I agree is only good for a guide unless you have the exact Emissivity Value of the material surface you are measuring, otherwise you can be as far out as 30 to 100deg C. For example if the thermometer you were using has a fixed Emissivity calibration of.95 the black plastic handle would be pretty accurate but the metal could be miles off. Eg. Emissivity of the surface of a material is its effectiveness in emitting energy as thermal radiation. or Emissivity is a measure of a material's radiating efficiency. An emissivity of 1.00 implies that the material is 100% efficient at radiating energy. Do not confuse this with the ability to reflect light they do not relate at all, the shininess is not relevant at all. Items like paint, water, paper and plastics the efficiency is between.9 &.95 thus any variation only gives a minor temp reading difference. But if you look at metals it’s a totally different story, Aluminum for example is between.09 Just polished no oxidation or polishes on surface and.2 normal oxidation (you can’t see it) or.4 heavily oxidised (white) so any incorrect setting on the thermometer gives a huge variation 30 to 100degC difference and you can’t tell the correct setting by looking at it, & across the surface will vary even though you can’t see the difference. The best practical way in the shop is to just give the metal a quick spray of enamel paint and the temp is read as paint and reasonably accurate within a few degrees. Good chart for metals Good chart for other I hope this info helps.

Absolutely nuts man, this is amazing. Punk rock welding, gettin' it done DIY style on a budget. Ain't pretty, but it works! Might work better with a metal bucket with some fins welded to it to dissipate the heat a bit more, but with the water not getting too much higher than ambient temps, I doubt there would be much difference.

Great video Justin say the story on Instagram. Thought it was a pretty cool way also ghetto like you said but hey I guess if you didn’t have a water cooler it would definitely work. Only thing I would suggest is putting distilled water in it for longer uses. I seen someone selling some kind of pump thing like this that you put in a bucket on eBay for like $175 or something like that before I bought my water cooler. Definitely a cool interesting idea / video. Also liked the joint video with you and crummy on Instagram that was cool too. Sad part about that cooler idea is it’s probably quieter than my everlast cooler 🤣. I’m sure this idea will help some people getting started out. 🙏👊🏻🍻🔥

In 1974 my fellow welder and I want to try TIG welding with the P&H welder. We made wire machinery for processing wire, like spooling welding wire onto spools for use welders. He said all we needed was a cooler. We put a submersible pump in a 5 gallon bucket to weld a small run of parts and it worked great. We took turns welding the parts. What I enjoyed was I got to show my TIG welding skills for the first time earning me the respect of not only my fellow welder friend but the rest of the shop. Nice video guys.

Very cool, but I thought you are supposed to use distilled water?
Keith Jurena 15 days ago
Tap water can contain permanent dissolved ions like calcium and magnesium which will foul the torch water side, reducing the heat transfer. Distilled water does not leach out metal from copper and only leaches the zinc from the surface of brass. Most name brand torches use brass with arsenic which resists zinc ion leaching. Arsenic has been removed from potable water brass so use weld fittings only. And swap out cooling water monthly when using distilled.
patw52pb1 15 days ago
Kit Iwamatsu Don't confuse deionized (DI) water with distilled water. Distilled water does not cause ionic leaching. Most commercial TIG torch coolers recommend using distilled water. Using tap water will result in internal mineral deposits reducing thermal transfer efficiency.
Jesse Wright 15 days ago

Kit Iwamatsu 16 days ago
Most tig water coolers just cool to room temperature. Water has a pretty high thermal capacity, much more so than air. It's a much bigger problem to eliminate that heat over time, than to get the water to an initial low enough temperature. The less hoopty, but still hoopty, way to do this is to use a small radiator (like a car heater core) with a reservoir, a pump with an inlet and outlet, and a small PC fan, then make it a closed system. You could do that for maybe 50-100 bucks if you wanted all new parts. That said. most coolers are exactly what i just described, with a flow alarm in case you pinch the lines, and a nice case.
