Customer Questions & Answers


Is water supposed to constantly flow out the bypass hose? That seems to be very wasteful and costly for water conservation.
Asked by: bj
If you do not care for the water to run out of the unit continuously you can reroute it by laying the tubing in the reservoir tray so the water will recirculate.

Customer Reviews

4000 CFM Slim Profile Window Evaporative Cooler for 1600 sq. ft. is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from More of a supplement versus a solution I installed this unit into a slider window which doesn't seem like most people do. I primed, painted and jammed a 3/4" board on top of the unit into window frame to block gap above the unit. The air blowing out of MCP44 is consistently 70 degrees which is ok. It uses between 250 and 350 watts of 120 volt electric depending on fan speed with the pump on. The unit doesn't cool more than a room or two away regardless of where you have a window cracked to direct cool air flow. Be prepared to adjust / bend the float so it actually cuts water supply off once pan is full. I removed the pads prior to installation and placed sun shade material to act as a filter. If you want to try that make sure the material has a low rate of sun blockage to not choke the cooler of air. I would suggest adding the purge pump that cycles pan water every 8 hours. Also add a utility / leader hose to water drain to keep water away from house and foundation. I would also suggest going with the 1/4" copper hose versus the polyurethane as it drips water consistently. At this point I would suggest trying another brand like the bonaire or a unit rated for more square feet and higher air output (CFM). If my opinion changes after the summer I will update this review.

It works fantastic and does not affect my utility bill at all (unlike A/C). The MasterCool has been an awesome product and is still going strong! If a pump should need to be replaced, it is an inexpensive and easy swap. I have only had to replace one so far. Will be replacing the media this season, but and easy! I recommend purchasing the exterior cover, as this keeps debris out of the media in the off season. Love this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ! We moved to Sun City CA last summer where SCE is giving away this unit including installation to qualified homeowners.We were approved for one. The wait is quite long.By the time it was installed,it was already winter.So we bought an outside cover for it and wait for summer to come.Once we started using it,we are very impressed.It is so powerful,so quiet that we think it is better than using a whole house ac unit.Our house is about 1200 sq ft.It cools the whole house in no time.Besides getting cool air,we get fresh air and moisture too.It is very comfortable. As for quality,we honestly don't know yet.Too soon to tell.Installation? The guys that installed it spent about half an hour. They told me that cleaning is not needed for 5 years.That is something I cannot trust.We'll clean it may be once a year, or when the air smells different,I hope. One more thing to remember,if the unit is not being used for sometime,it will smells but will be OK in a day or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Evap Cooler, Very poor assembly instructions Cooler seems very well built, works great and looks good at the same time. No rusty old gray or brown cooler hanging out of your window. Accordion window fillers are junk, too tight to stretch out, wouldn't stick. I had some sheet metal fillers made - $15. Purge pump is worth it, saves water. Installation instructions are really bad. Big problem is how does the exterior cover come off? Just unscrew the 4 screws, two on top and two up from the bottom, slide the exterior cover up having somebody hold the main body. Have fun. Maddog

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk from the Start I thought I would give a try over the traditional water coolers I've used in the past. I opened the box just to see it cracked everywhere. Cheap plastic that will never hold up for long period of time. I took it back one hour after buying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, poor support Finally a cooler made of rustproof plastic and does not require a hole in the roof! Good design with intelligence and thoughtfulness. I really like the cooler, but the instructions were incomplete, making the installation way more difficult that it should have been. I had to install it twice to learn that 3-4 inches of space is required behind the top of the cooler to assure the top of the outer case half is installed properly. Covers are supposed to be available. I could find nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from money saver! We have used a swamp cooler for 30 years in CALIF. Now living in SW Idaho, we are stuck with all electric heating/cooling unit that would cost $7-8K to replace. Being on a fixed income, we needed to save money. This slim-line unit uses 1/4 of the electricity and saves us $300 per month during the sultry summer months. It's light weight and much easier to install than the bulky units. Two screw on the bottom, and one bracket beneath the unit on the inside of the window tacks onto the sill. The three speed setting is awesome! Our home has vaulted ceilings and is 1,600 sq feet. By leaving bedroom windows cracked approximately 6 inches, it draws the cool air down the hallways, and keep the interior between 72 and 74 degrees all day long. We turn it on BEFORE 11 am when the sun hits hard on the roof...and we keep the living room ceiling fan on to distribute the breeze. We purchased the PURGE PUMP which dumps the circulated water via a drain hose every six hours to keep a clean fresh smell and bacteria to a bare minimum. A 1/4 cup of bleach added once a month insures no bacteria or stale smell. All swamp coolers are fairly noisy, but this one is far quieter than the bulky ones from the past. If placing the unit in a room where the TV Volume is an important factor (simply turn it onto LOW)....our unit is in the kitchen which opens via an archway into the living room.....therefore, the TV volume is not an issue.... We used foil coated Styrofoam insulation (easy to cut and keeps bugs out) to place in void spaces around the openings in the window, and THEN we hid the foil face with the accordion side pleats included in the box....the sticky tape provided works fine as long as the STRETCH factor to fit the void space does not need to expand too far...if so, simply tack into place with tiny screws or carpet tacks into the wooden window trim and tiny screws into the actual portion of the unit that enters the house. We're thrilled to have an attractive unit on the outside of the house, as opposed to the METAL MONSTERS of the past. Our electrician came to hook up our hot tub, walked into a cool house when it was 104 outside and ended up buying a unit for his home. It has paid for itself in the first 6 weeks of use; as opposed to giving the $500. to the electric company!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely a good alternative to AC We bought this to cool our 1800 sq. ft. home instead of our broken 1970's AC unit, and it has been a huge success. Construction is simple, robust, and durable. The only downside it took two people handy with tools 3 hours to securely install in a ground level window. The accordion shades for covering the sides of the window left exposed are not good for sealing of the window after the install is complete, but that was easily rectified by purchasing some blue insulation board, painting it, cutting it, and caulking it into the window side holes.
