          This 4500cfm (at single inlet pressure) does a consistently better job than my previous cooler. While it can only bring 95 degree air down to 65, that's all I need. I've now had the same unit on my daughter's 900 sf house for 2.5 years, son's 1500 sf house 1 year and mine (1600sf up, walkout basement down) now for 1 month. All of them seem to be working fine, but you do need to have a clamp on amp meter to check the current draw (at breaker box), my son's burned up a motor in about one year, when I checked it with the same Dial motor I found it needed a different pulley (sheave) to be adjusted into the right amp range.

          Our last one rusted out in 10 years. When it was time to replace, we knew MasterCool was the best. We got it installed right before the heat came to Tucson. This new unit works much better than the old one. I do wish it came with a plastic media instead of cardboard and was already either rust-proof or stainless.

          This cooler is a major upgrade from our old swamp cooler. It was also much less than converting to refrigerated air.

          I purchased at end of season using Affirm credit for interest free 6 mo loan. I will install in early spring. I can’t comment on how it works, but I’m confident it will be fine. It will sit in the barn this winter in the shipping box.

          Big step down from traditional evaporative cooler
          Mine came with my newly built house, it's never worked half as good as a traditional style evaporative cooler. The reason is simple, the water distribution system simply can't saturate the very expensive paper cooling pad. This year I installed a new water distribution PVC pipe, a new filter, and a new pump. The float was properly adjusted so the water pump had adequate water. In spite of this, the cooling pad never gets saturated. I'm going down to a sheet metal shop today and have a sheet metal water distribution reservoir made up. Then I will put in old school cooling pads

            The only problem I had with this cooler is the fasteners/screws. Many of them were stripped from the factory and I had to pry them to get them out, then when reinserting, the holes are clearly stripped. MasterCool used Clip-On sheet metal retainers and obviously don't have good quality control over their torque settings at the factory. Would have been much better to use PEM nuts or Clip-On Hex nuts rather than the absolute cheapest thing they can find. Definitely detracts from quality. I wound up having to swap all with Pro-Panel self tapping roofing screws, but I would recommend you look into purchasing your own bolts and matching Clip-On Hex nuts your self upon first install. It is not that expensive of an investment but will save you huge headaches. I would have rather paid an extra $20 from the store for this product than to have to go through the headache. If anyone from MasterCool reads this, please be pro-active to get this problem solved. Cooling works really well, even when the humidity goes up. Great efficiency. Lets just get the hardware issue solved please.
