Rated 5 out of 5Â by Clem Best pads for Swamp Coolers
Have used these in the original cooler that was on the house when it was new and all replacement Coolers since. I finally got a stainless Cooler about 10 years ago. Tried out the paper and blue replacement pads at different times, and they did not work well. The wood cellulose or aspen pads work 100% better. Well never give those supposed new fangled replacement pads another chance. Even during high humidity days my swamp cooler does an commendable job of keeping the house cool. Always use 2 pads per louver which works the best. Home Depot has these at an acceptable price.

I have had a swamp cooler in Blythe, CA and Yuma, AZ, and I have tried the "improved" synthetic medium. That stuff does not absorb water, it just runs over the surface. Aspen absorbes water and gives the best cooling! I use 2 pads on each frame. Soak them down real well with a hose, or run the pump for 10-15 minutes before turning on the fan. They last a lot longer if you use a bleed kit to drain off a little water as you use it, or use a drain pump. If they start smelling like an aquarium or they start getting a mineral build-up, change them. With Aspen pads, my small cooler works in inland San Diego which is much more humid than the desert. When the monsoon hits Arizona, swamp coolers don't work very well, but the Aspen pads give you the best cooling.

I used these pasd for the first time this season after reading good online reviews. But I would NOT recommend them and will never use them again. They were more difficult to install than other pads due to being thinner at the edges. Some people suggested doubling up on the pads, and I assume that's why. But the main problem is that after only a short time of use, comtaminants from these pads infiltrated the water, and sank to the bottom where they clogged the pump. The purge pump was aimilarly comtaminated. I'll go back to using the blue pads that I've used successfully for several years without a problem.
