Questions & Answers

How much does a motor cost for this unit

Asked by: Mojo
$94,98 for the 3/4 hp motor at Home Depot.

What does the unit weigh?

Will I need a professional to install it and get it up on the roof?
Asked by: Debb
Sorry, my keyboard didn't get the 1 in 175. The unit weighs about 175 pounds, but it also splits into two pieces. I dragged mine up to the roof by splitting it, and removing the fan. Then reassembling it up on the roof. I would suspect that, at the very least, you will need to have it craned up to the roof. I installed mine by myself, it wasn't too complicated, but it was kind grueling physically.

What does 8" media mean

Asked by: Pete
Glad to be of assistance.... the 8-inch media, as it is called, is... instead of using that thin fuzzy stuff like on the other coolers, this is like a 8-inch cardbord that the water flows down. It is a much more longer lasting design. Thou it is much more expensive, the cooling is much better. You end result will be that you should have a cooler home.

5000 CFM Down-Draft Roof 8 in. Media Evaporative Cooler for 1650 sq. ft. (Motor Not Included) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The VERY BEST you can expect from your swamp cooler with low humidity (10%) is a 30 degree reduct... The VERY BEST you can expect from your swamp cooler with low humidity (10%) is a 30 degree reduction in the air it blows into your home. So if it is 115 outside, 10% humidity you get air blowing inside at about 85 degrees.. Also you get colder air on the SLOW speed, though not a lot of air... less cooling on high speed with more air being blown into the house. See below for a Swamp Cooler Air output chart: http://phlsystems.com/pages/cooleroutput.htm The nice thing about the Mastercool (I bought the ADA51) is that they come completely apart with a bunch of screws and 4 bolts (larger units may have more bolts). I replaced my old rusted Adobe swamp cooler 2 months ago - basically the old Adobe and Mastercool units are exactly the same - though the Mastercool has various improvements - no metal tab folds on the squirrel cage, no welding points, and of course a completely new plastic wet section inside the metal box and a metal bracket to hold the water pump. This will eliminate almost all rusting, which is great. But there is not a real design improvement here, so you will NOT get a better cooling ratio than with the really old same style units. Replace your units when they rust out, not before. You do NOT gain anything with the new units. Since I would be doing all the work myself, having the unit come completely apart made getting it on the roof easy.... though the squirrel fan weighs 37 pounds and is a bit awkward to climb up a ladder with, as it's some what large. It took me about 2 hours to put the pieces back together and ready to run.... easy since I was replacing a rusted out unit, so all power and water was ready to go with few changes. Always work Safe and Carefully !!! I did try and use a new Dial motor - but returned it as it ran excessively hot and made a loud hum throughout the house through the ducting. Once I put in the OLD motor there was no motor noise and the motor ran nice and cool. Tips: Mount the Wet section side panels to the wet bottom plate before mounting to the dry section - this makes installing it easier.... do frequent level checks - you want the unit to be as level as possible for best operation.... so check sideways and back and forth. I also put extra pieces of shingles under each of the Leg's feet.... - adjust the float (you bend the shaft) so the water is WELL BELOW the overflow - as there is run-off from the media when you turn the unit off.... Also the water feed needs to be set a bit HIGH so there is no chance of evaporation on a very hot day lowering your water tank level and possibly giving you poor dripage over your evaporation media or dry areas. AND important - as was the case with the Adobe unit, the front grill will fall out once you lift off the Wet Section's top.... so be careful here - the grill will bend if it falls out, which it always wants to do!!! I live in Palm Desert, California, and already this year we have had days of 120 degree temperatures.... where the Swamp Cooler is basically worthless.... you have to use the AC. But for temperatures under about 113 with low humidity, the Swamp Coolers works fine for me.

I just finished installing one of these on my roof, just in time for the Tucson monsoons! The quality and engineering are very good. I think it's gonna be fine. BUT The media system they use smells like urine when you start it up. I've read that this eventually goes away, it's the glue they use to manufacture the media. And that you can speed the break in by 'conditioning' it with a process of running the pump, dumping the water, and adding a half cup or so of Downy fabric softener. Rinse and repeat, after about 10 cycles the Downy overpowers the stinky glue and it's okay. Wish the manufacturer or Home Depot would have said something about this. AND If I had it to do over, I'd have bought the larger Mastercool. The smaller does okay but doesn't get the house as cool as I'd like.

Hard to tell how well it cools, just as I finished installing, the monsoon came rolling in and pushed the humidity up. Kinda wish I'd spent the extra hundred for the 7000 cfm cooler, tho.

We had it installed and I recommend that. A lot of my neighbors have this unit and it was recommended when we needed to replace our old rusted out swamp.
