Swamp Cooler and just say hi

Just want to say hello to everybody. It's my first time here. I listened to the Thursday Net and they recommended that I post here about my DIY swamp cooler I designed and built out of a five gallon bucket using solar power, a 12 volt fan and a pond pump.

Carri:

Welcome to OAUSA and thanks for posting the information on your swamp cooler. Very clever and a whole lot more compact that the huge units I normally see.
