I was wondering if anyone have come across on this or have an IBC system running, how can it be protected from the sun or to keep the temp more stable... :idea:

The idea to wrap it with plastic sounds good 8-) ....I would buried mine but since I will be running a chop2 system I don't think I could.

I used bubble wrap on my pool. It worked well, but if you have exposured to bright light, over wrap with a reflective layer. Black paint on the IBC will protects from UV.
