Questions & Answers

Q:my cooler has two pumps?

Answer This Question

A:  Not familiar with any evaporative cooler with 2 pumps, though they all have 2 motors: one to recirculate the tank water, the other to turn the squirrel cage fan that blows the cooled and moistened air into the house.

A:  Some coolers will have a primary pump that circulates the water onto the cooler pads. The other pump is a purge pump. That pump only comes on after a certain amount of hours and only runs for 15 to 30 minutes. This changes the water in your cooler. Coolers that only have one pump when purchased will usually have the ability to add a purge pump. You can buy the purge pump at HomeDepot or on their website. The pump and installation kit is very easy to install. Make sure you use the mesh filter for it also. The mesh filter keeps garbage out of the impeller housing of the pump.

        My swamp cooler was mediocre until I bought this mesh pump basket. Wow! What a difference it makes. Nothing gets in and clogs up the pump and it pumps the water and it cools down my house so great. Would definitely buy it again.

        We are happy with our purchase. The unit works great. The only drawback I found was the overall care in making sure all the external casing parts were aligned during assembly. The shell was screwed together unevenly giving the visual appearance of the shell being crooked. The unit leveled out ok after mounting but someone in Beijing got happy with the company screw gone. I would still recommend this unit as the mechanical portion works as advertised.
