Swamp cooler on the way

It will be another experiment to see if it can be made to work in this trailer.

This model should be a bit more powerful than the last one.  An idea to purchase just the evaporation media only was considered, but set aside.

It will only use 80 watts of electricity, which may make it possible to use with the small solar panel that I have.  Imagine using only solar electric to cool down this place.  If that works, it will be a big deal.

The evaporation rate is a little over a gallon per hour.  It would seem that this is a bit more than I would like, so it may be necessary to run it for a shorter period of time in order to conserve water.

I look forward to the arrival of this machine.  It will be an interesting experiment.
