Is water supposed to constantly flow out the bypass hose? That seems to be very wasteful and costly for water conservation.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Buy and install the purge pump. This cycles the water on an 8 hour basis and is much less wasteful. Also put a utility hose on the water discharge fitting to direct water away from house / foundation.

Answer: 
Yes. Think about it: This unit cools through evaporation. That's going to leave behind the minerals that are currently in your water supply. Eventually, the mineral level will build up so high that the water can't contain it anymore, and it will precipitate out of the water, coating the cel-dek material. When that happens, it prevents easy evaporation, meaning no more cooling. So water is continually Read More

When that happens, it prevents easy evaporation, meaning no more cooling. So water is continually drained out to keep the mineral level in the cooler low. It's not a lot of water, but feel free to reuse it in lawns, gardens, etc. Read Less

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect! Wish I had bought this 2 years ago when the price was lower. But don't regret the purchase at today's price. Has dropped my garage temperature an average of 23 degrees. This combined with a ceiling attic duct has made the Arizona summer temperatures in my garage tolerable. Humidity levels hovering around 42% RH. Love the remote because it makes control adjustments so easy. The slim design works great outside the garage without impeding the walkway. Again, this is perfect, and at a fraction of the energy cost that air conditioning would have cost. August 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by REALLY!!! After waiting 10 days for it to be delivered to my local store ,I never even plugged the thing in .I took it home to put it together and after a quick inspection found that it had never been completely assbled at the factory. August 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Significant issues In actual functioning, this has fair effectiveness, but a few problems cause me to not recommend it. The pump, as usual, functions separately from the fan. About half the time, for no reason I can understand, the pump has to be turned on by the remote control separately from the main "on" switch. It's "on" is signaled by a tiny faint blue light, and I have to climb up on a chair right in front of the cooler to see if it is on or off, and then mess with the buttons on the remote, which doesn't work very well, squinting into the light of the window trying to detect whether the blue light is appearing or not. The same faint blue light signals the "hi" "medium" or "low" of the fan. The fan is very loud. When I use the remote to change the velocity of the fan, there is a several second delay, while I wait to see whether the remote worked. The light appears (faint, tiny) very briefly when the connection is received from the remote, and the sound changes. When I look at the cooler to see, "Man, that is really loud; what speed is it set on?" I can't tell which speed it is, I have to manually change the settings via remote and listen for the quietest setting, which is tedious since the remote doesn't work very well. I have had no problems with water or electrical, but it isn't a smooth operating cooler, and the poor quality of the remote in the first couple of months of use does not bode well. The window is rather high in my wall, and manual operation is not practical. Supposedly this can be installed in a sliding window, but there is no accordian space filler to allow for that. No gasket or other provision is offered to seal out bugs from the gaps all around the console. I'm sure a lot of people have sliders, not single-hung windows, in their homes; don't know why the manufacturer would not provide for easy installation in a slider. This cooler in no way can cool 1600 square feet. The roar of the fan on the high setting would preclude anyone trying to use it for that purpose. I literally cannot hear my spouse talking next to me in the same room when it's on high. On Low, it will cool my 300 sq. ft. bedroom reasonably. The huge advantage of this cooler is its plastic housing, so we don't have to watch it disintegrate in rust beginning in the first year. August 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works but noisy In-wall installation instruction includes "have installed by a contractor" and that's pretty much it. I installed it myself and it works good but it is very noisy, even on low speed. The remote only works if you stand or hold it higher than the units control panel and has a 15ft range limit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pennies per day to operate! $1 per day to operate vs $10 with air conditioner....my family lives in the Central Valley of California....humidity is non existence (rain is also pretty much non existent as we'll... the last few years anyway....unit runs best w/low humidity). Anyhow this unit is a beast, got it from Home Depot at a few days ago....2 hours later this baby was pumping cold air throughout our 1640 sq home....first night temp got down to 59 degrees, had to run on low speed (can run 3 speed fan w/without water pump) the rest of the night...I am looking forward to the savings per month...should have done this years ago...but it is never to late....The remote is a nice feature as we'll! Bonaire you rock!! April 19, 2014
