      Not as described


      First of all, I live in California, a dry climate, so any problems were not due to living in an area of high humidity. Swamp coolers perform poorly in areas with high humidity. Right out of the box, mode/speed two didn't work. I called and asked if this was some kind of default because the padding needed time to become saturated with water. She said yes, and that once it was saturated, mode/speed two would work. It never did, even after 24 hours of use. The air never became cool. Yes, it was on cool mode. Yes, the water pump was working. Yes, the air was blowing out of it (on speeds 1 and 3 -- speed 2 never worked). All it did was blow tepid, humid air, filling up the place with stifling humidity and heat -- the opposite of what I wanted when I purchased a COOLING UNIT. I tried to message them to ask for help -- I was ignored. It is now on the UPS truck, going back for a refund.

      design issue

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I understand that Evap coolers use water to cool the air a few degrees. They do not have the same level of cooling as air conditioners. I felt this unit provided a little cooling if you are in front of it but the ambient temp in the room changed very little. I felt it should do better so while it was running I checked the back to see if water was dripping down the wet / evap pad. Only half the pad was getting wet. Half of the nipples were not dripping. If I tilted the cooler they would start dripping. This tells me the pump is not pumping the volume of water needed for all water nipples wold be dripping water. I confirmed they were not blocked. I will return in the morning...kind of disappointed. Will look into a different product

      A couple of reviews stated that it stoppped working almost right away. I thought they might have been the exceptions, but I liked the features of this cooler, so I got it anyway. It worked well at first, but then I noticed that the carpet was getting wet. I thought maybe I spilled the water, but then every day, the carpet was getting wetter and wetter until the carpet was so wet it was squishing. Well I had to admit the tank was leaking. I was unhappy because it worked well at first.

      Poor quality, started leaking.

      At first, it worked very well, so I was pleased. However, I kept having to fill the water tank. Then I noticed the carpet was damp. I thought perhaps I spilled some water when I was filling the tank. But after several days, the carpet was soaking wet! It was leaking. I should have read the reviews, but I thought my luck would be better. It wasn't.

      This machine leaks water. I have had this for nearly a year and it has started to leak water on the floor. I recommended this to a friend who bought it and his leaks too. The company asks you to purchase shipping to return a shoddy product back and they may or may not replace. I repeat, unless you want to pay for shipping for a product that is faulty after you buy it, DO NOT BUY THIS COOLER.

      Doesn't cool at all

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Extremely disappointed with this product. I didn't realize it required filling it with water. It uses up about half the tank in 1 night, which means I have to constantly refill it. But more importantly, it did not cool my room at all. Temperature only dropped 2 degrees, and even at max setting it just blew out air did not feel any coolness coming out. Returning product this week

      I live in arid Colorado where swamp coolers work great; this unit was advertised to cool a decent size room, and it is weak at best. My ceiling fan does a better job than this portable swamp cooler!
