Your in the wrong part of the country for using a "Swamp Cooler". They work better in the dry western states.
However: What your discribing is NOT an evaporative cooler but rather a cooling unit using cold lake water as the cooling medium. This can work but needs a rather large raditor and fan and a GOOD water flow rate. Do a Google as this has been done before.
May have described it improperly, but the unit I will use is an evaporatrive cooler unit< The unit is from a walk in box, its an ideal size with water in water out , the dual fans complete the unit. Keep in mind IM only cooling a bedroom, making it very comfortable, the salon area more of a stretch but w/fans one will see a huge improvement ...... size of the unit is 12X32x36 not very big
....thanks for the heads up Ill refer to it as a swamp cooler, in reference to dry western states, compared to hot humid area i live in, part of my question is related to the amount of mositure , more interested in issues, such as the amount of moisture ill put into the living area?
the water temp I'll be seeing may be in the mid 50's we normally see our 1st thermoclines 17-18ft area, its been a while sence i have blown any air, ill keep u posted
