Homemade air coolers are an inexpensive, effective way to cool your home. After the air passes the moistened pad inside the cooler, it enters the room and adds moisture to the air.
You will need four boards and drywall screws to build a frame. Join them with drill bit.
In the center of one board, make a small hole and insert a tube in it. Secure it with staples and waterproof silicone. Make holes about 2 mm every two inches. Connect the other side of the tube to the submersible pump, then put the pump into the water tray.
Take a screen mesh and stretch it over one side of the frame then staple it.
Put two swamp pads inside the box. Cover the pads with the screen and staple it.
Drill few holes in the frame and attach the fan with wood screws, then fill it with water to cover the pump.
