I've gotten hold of a used Nova Tec Iceprobe chiller, but the paint/coating on the probe itself is flaking and the exposed probe is oxidized. It appears to be a simple aluminum rod, so I assume it could just be repainted. I know this isn't uncommon for these units, so I'm curious what others have done to coat the aluminum without insulating it too much. Since it's already oxidizing, do you need to use special primers and paints? And how do we know which are reef safe? Alternatively, would it be OK to simply use the naked aluminum probe unpainted? Will it just augment my phosguard?
