Prices for swamp cooler replacement pads are based on Aspen Snow Cool pads at $90 (plus start up fee), DIAL Dura Cool pads at $150 (plus start up fee), and Breezair high efficiency pads at $585 (plus start up fee).
A swamp cooler start up is not just reconnecting the water line. Swamp coolers draw outside air through wet pads and will accumulate dirt, molds and other harmful agents in the reservoir pan, the pans should be cleaned of dirt and debris. Pads will also trap dirt, molds and can become plugged, they should be inspected and replaced when needed. The pump and distributors can become plugged and should be cleaned. The humidity produced by the system will corrode components, motor and blower bearings should be oiled. The water lines should be reconnected and inspected for leaks. The reservoir float should be adjusted. The belt and other components should be inspected for wear.
A basic start up includes the following:
Cleaning the reservoir pan, cleaning the distributors, oiling the motor bearings, oiling the blower bearings, reconnecting the water supply line and inspecting it for leaks, setting the reservior float, inspecting the pads, inspecting the belt and other components for wear. Pads and other components that may need replacing are extra.
