It's a commodity product. Good or bad will be determined by how long it lasts. My last one from HD was the other (better) version from the same brand, and it only lasted two seasons, much worse than others I've had. I'm giving this one the benefit of the doubt and scoring it in the middle.
I don't like that this brand lacks the built-in tee to connect your 1/4" bypass/drain line. With our desert's mineral-saturated water, it's the only way to reduce massive incrustation of the pads. I had to go back and buy an in-line 1/2" x 1/4" tee to make that connection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AW1887 Bigger pump!
I have been a refrigeration technician for 18 years and I know how to get the most out of a cooler. The window 5000 CFM cooler I bought at Home Depot comes with a 7,500 pump. I was able to get a third more cooling out of the cooler by 1) opening up the water trough opening with a flat tip screwdriver by one half more on each one. 2) buying this 11,000 water pump. Now ALL three cooler pads are completely covered with water. Now when it's 105 degrees outside, it's 77 degrees inside!

I purchased this product and was easy to install, thought it was great until it wasn't. It only lasted for 13+months and only used about 30 percent of that time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandeleh Best money I've spent on my cooler!
The last pump in my evap cooler was a 7,500 cfm model and my house was unbearably hot and the servicemen told me I'd just have to put up with it. This year I put in a new 11,000 cfm pump and once more my house is Cool and Comfortable, even in 102 deg heat!! It soon will be even hotter here in Fresno, but with this new pump and its higher capacity, I'll be cooler and happier.
