If connected to a city watercourse , run it till it comes out warm/hot ( 50°C) into the drain.
running from the liebig condenser too the reflux down the drain.
now for a closed circuit. it doesn't really matter i guess. find a car radiator and let the warm water come out in there where it gets cooled back in to a tun. and pumped back trough the system with a submersible pump.
now the radiator is IN THE CLOSED CIRCUIT of the cooling water.
AND NOT IN CONTACT WITH THE CONDENST PRODUCT !!
there is an example on youtube.

So, I've got my 5' copper pipe for my reflux tower, and I'm waiting on my coiled copper condenser to show up, along with a few other things.
Something I'm not sure of, however, is how much water to run through the condenser, and how much of a reservoir I should have. My initial thought was to have one of those big Tupperware totes (the kind you fill full of junk and store in your garage) with water and, depending on the temperature, add ice.
What does everyone else use for their reflux tower condensing?
