    Honeycomb evaporative cooling pads are designed to provide maximum cooling, low
    pressure drop and years of reliable service. It is made from specifically engineered
    cellulose paper that is chemically treated to resist deterioration. Cross fluted, unequal
    angle pad design promotes the beneficial mixing of air and water for optimum cooling.
    This unique design also functions to continually direct more water to the air entering the
    face of the pad, where the air is the hottest, driest, dirtiest and where the most intense
    evaporation occurs.

  • FUNCTION
  • Can we get an operator manual?

  • Does the CoolBox drain water?

    The CoolBox units do not drain water automatically.However, if the unit is in continuous use, all water in the water tank will completely evaporate over time and you will not need to drain any water. If there is water left over after using, you can drain from the water tank by unscrewing the drain cap located on the bottom of the back side of the unit.

  • How does the CoolBox work? 

    After you pour water into the water tank or connect your water hose to the water hose connector, the water will be pumped up to water distribution tray which will then slowly release water to drip onto the cooling pad. When air passes through the cooling pad, the water will evaporate causing the air temperature to drop.

  •  What is the purpose of the anion button?

    An ionizer works by emitting negatively charged ions (ANION) into a room. Because of their polarity, the emitted ions instantly attach to the positively charged contaminants in the air. The newly formed particles are too heavy to float and fall to the surface and out of the ambient air you breathe, resulting in cleaner air.

  • Can I adjust the temperature on the evaporative cooler? 

    No, the temperature cannot be adjusted, the display is only reflecting the temperature of the air emitted from unit.

  • Why is my CoolBox beeping?

    The beeping sound may signal that your fan has run out of water and the water tank needs to be refilled.

  •  Can I lay down my CoolBox to transport it?

    Yes, you may lay the CoolBox unit down during transport, but we recommend you transport it in an upright and secure position whenever possible.

  •  What is the run time on each of the CoolBox units?

    The unit run time is dependent on the humidity level of the air and the air conditions in the region where you live.

(Note: If you use vinegar, it can be difficult to remove its smell) If you’d like to, you may add one capful of fabric softener to the tank to add a fresh scent to the air.
