Living it a hard water area, all cooler pads quickly get choked up with calcium that sets like concrete. These filters were purchased to replace the originals that had been in there for five years. The install was pretty simple, although it needed the included foam spacers from my model that was a little awkward due to the breeze. Overall, they work well and provide must needed coolness in the Nevada heat. They are a good generic replacement for the aerocool filters at half the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Donz0 Too Short for my cooler
For years I've been impressed with Mastercool and Mastercool parts. So I bought these pads at Home Depot with confidence for my 17 year old MC43 Mastercool. When I opened the box I was surprised to see instructions. The instructions explained that the pads may be too short for some coolers and there was styrofoam pieces included to boost the height.
Well the styrofoam was not enough to secure the pad cover (water distribution) firmly on the pads, so water sprayed out the back side and was sucked in by the blower wheel. I found a thicker piece of styrofoam to do the job.
When I replace these pads, I will remember this, Mastercool

Changed out the 2.5 year old, original media with this in a horizontal outlet Master Cool 4800 unit. The old media just wasn't producing much cooling effect. This media, depending on the RH, can add a good
30% RH, with the resulting air temp. drop. It can 'overhumdify' the outlet air, but that's still cooler than the outside ambient air.
This media set measures the same as the factory media. Installs without hassle, if one pays attention to the 'front' and 'up' direction marks on the media.
One tip for Master Cool owners--Currently I get the most even water distribution by placing 2 folds of
sunscreen cloth, directly on the media top, with the top plastic cover (that encloses the distribution pipe) fitting snugly down on the trimmed plastic cloth edges.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by watchmenofchrist Light and easy to install
I thought this was going to be something I would need help with, but the product is light and very easy to install. The instructions were easy to follow.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Swede Not as advertised
The manufacturer states these are good for FIVE years but after only TWO summers my pads became brittle and started to fall apart. That amounts to $45.00 per year for the pads. If there was an alternative I would seriously look into it.
