    my water distribution tubes are filled with what feels to be sand and it's not allowing to wet the pads so it's just warm air coming out of the vents.. how do I clean them out?

    I know this is an old Video. But maybe I could get some advice. I have the exact same unit but its my understanding that those pads are close to $90 in my area. Can they be scrapped and cleaned and reused? Mine do have what looks like some calcium deposits but it's not rock hard. I can break them off with my hands. Again I ask. Can they be scrapped and re-used? Plz help

    Is there a video for adjusting if water goes in the cooler or not. My swamp cooler's water is connected by my hose. And i'm sure i turn the water of so my cooler is just pushing hot air.

    Opening windows to exhaust some air outdoors on an evaporative cooler is not an option. It needs to be done for proper operation and best results. I know of two air balancing methods. 1. Window Area/CFM Method. 2. Tissue Suction Method. Refer to the manual for your unit for proper air balancing steps.

    I'm considering changing out my four panel swamp cooler for one of these Mastercool models. I'm looking on the price of the replacement pads and had sticker shock. How many years do you get out of the pads? I have hard water and usually change them out every year. Thanks in advance..
