Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoveSleep Keeps living room cold
The unit does keep the living room cool even with the windows open. It is a bit loud, but I can live with it. I can run the fan on the level 1 setting and the tank lasts about 9.5 hours. I don't keep it connected to a continual source of water, I just fill it up when it's running low. No alarm lets you know, you just have to keep your eye on the water level on the front. It's easy to fill with the opening being on the top of the unit. Although it has the honey comb panels on the side, cool air only comes out in the front, which is fine. Nothing beats central AC but this is the best next thing if you want to keep electricity costs down. It does have a plug on the bottom near the back to drain the water if you're going to store the unit. Make sure that's sealed tight before you start filling the unit with water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DVP Lots of cool air
The unit is easy to use and move. The water fill is in a very convenient location and it can be connected to an outside source for auto-fill. It hold lots of water. My only complaint is the location of the fill float. It's very low and is somewhat hard to read. Once you realize what it looks like and how to read it, it becomes a little easier. This product is not made in the USA.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CDW Swamp cooler for greenhouse.
Using the swamp cooler in an Orchid Greenhouse in NE Ga. Works well considering our normal humidity. Takes the edge off of the heat. Orchids seem to be doing better since we installed it. Good quality and very easy to set up.
Manufacturer Rep was very helpful in making decision on which one to purchase

This item is a waste of money. Two weeks after purchase it started leaking onto the floor. The leak was massive and wet the floor to the point that some of the floor tiltiles had to be replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Improve performance
Works much better with shredded aspen fill (6-8 degrees cooler) rather than the bargain-basement cardboard fill provided. You'll need a bit of ingenuity to change. I used double thickness aspen pads, 1/2X1/2 steel mesh, and electrical tie wraps to keep pads in place (tend to sag when wet). Keeps 350 sq. ft. workshop at 76 when outside temp is 100+.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LVNV Keeps the house cool
I bought 2 of these last year, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. We used it for most of the 100+ weather of last year. I live in Las Vegas and yes in a house. It is 107 outside right now and the only things I have going are both evap coolers and ceiling fans. My house is 81 and comfortable. I really like these coolers they seam to do a great job. The outer plastic is cheap but so are most cooler housings. On one of my coolers the inside screws that hold the filters on were all rusting, not too happy about that but I just purchased new non-rusting screws. I get about 8hrs on low with this cooler when it is full. It definitely makes a difference where you place these cooler that give you the best temperatures.

I love everything about this unit except the hose hook up. They need to beef ot up better..If honeywell improves that part of it then they knock it out of the park.
