How about a coil of plastic line in ice bath for incoming water to wort chiller ?

copper would be a better heat exchanger than plastic. but in my experience (and being in florida i've tried about every configuration conceivable) they don't work too well, and you waste ice. for a while I used a 50' coil in an ice bath as a prechiller and it didn't work nearly as well as Jamil Z's immersion chiller method as I described above.
I use 2 counterflow chillers now, but the general idea is the same - knock down first with hose water, then use recirculating ice water.
